Advent Mission Project

The church will again support the Saint Philothea Project, which collects donations from Orthodox people in America and delivers them to Orthodox orphans and other poor children in Romania. Items are needed for children of every age and gender. We are asking each child to bring in underwear and colored socks for a child their gender, size and age. All items should be brought to Sunday School by Sunday, December 14th. The Sunday School will place all packages into a mailing box and ship to a location in the U.S. and then they will be transported by plane to Romania. Monetary donations will also be accepted to cover the cost to mail / transport these items to Romania.
