Build-a-Dresser Morning

The Mission committee has recently engaged with World Relief as the recent influx of refugees in our area are in need of help. World Relief is a global Christian humanitarian organization whose mission is to empower the local church to serve the most vulnerable. World Relief’s work in the United States specifically focuses on helping refugees and other immigrants in vulnerable situations rebuild their lives in a new country. In particular, they are in need of dressers.

We are looking for volunteers to help assemble dressers from Ikea. On Saturday, March 18th from 10am—noon, we will gather in Dobstaff to assemble the dressers and enjoy sweet treats and fellowship. Please sign-up in the narthex or contact Stu Blake or the office.
