The Elderberry Ministry
Our Elderberry Ministry is a ministry designed to provide adults who are of the retirement age an opportunity to continue to grow in faith and also to lead our church in wisdom and example. This group of men and women met last Sunday, September 19th to plan ministry for the fall through December
The first Elderberry event is a service project scheduled for Thursday September 30th from 12:00 pm-3:00 pm.
The event will include a meal plus an opportunity to serve by completing the Hygiene Kits for Haiti that our church and the youth of North Wilkesboro Baptist and North Wilkesboro Methodist began during the week of Vacation Bible School. The youth, during Bible school week, completed 160 hygiene kits but had around 200 kits stored as incomplete. Through the Mission and Outreach Committee our church accepted the challenge to participate in this project which was discovered on the PCUSA website.
The Elderberries first meeting of this fall will be to finish the hygiene kits and prepare them for shipment to Haiti. Currently we anticipate sending close to 400 Hygiene Kits from the three churches and we need lots of hands to help with these desperately needed kits.
Contact Smitty if you would like to help and mark your calendars for Thursday, September 30th!!!!
