LOCAL MISSIONS

Orchard strives to encourage, teach, develop, financially support, and pray for disciples to spread God’s Word.

 

Orchard is charged with establishing ministries in support of “the widow, the orphan” and the “least of these brothers and sisters of mine”. Our endeavor is to find ministries and opportunities to serve that are closely aligned with our Lord’s mandate to serve those in the deepest need.

Local Missions team is an active group that meets on the 1st Tuesday evening of each month. Please contact Mike Hershey if you would like to participate or join the committee.

 

Upcoming Events

 

Kitchen Basics Collection Drive

April & May

Individuals, couples, and families are able, with the assistance of their case manager, to move into permanent housing. They are excited and nervous about now being inside. Adjusting to living in a safe, indoor, quiet environment takes almost a year. An additional stressor to moving in is the need for essential household items. Many do not have the financial means to furnish and supply these very basic items.

We want to help ease the transition into their new home by providing the basic needs for their new kitchen. Our goal this year is 20 Kitchen Basic Kits. Please click on register to select the items you can provide. Items do not need to be new but need to be in good condition.

Items can be dropped off on Sunday mornings (look for the bins) or bring them by the church office during the week.

For questions about the drive, please contact Joan Smith
