TODAY IS THE LAST SUNDAY to donate to our February Special Mission, Wings Flights of Hope.  If you would like to support this local organization, please place your donation in today’s offering plate or designate a special mission donation online before Saturday.  If you are using a convenience envelope located in the pews, please mark it clearly as “Wings Flights of Hope”.  Wings is a local 100% volunteer organization that is completely reliant on charitable donations.  They provide air transportation to specialized doctors and hospitals for any person, any age, in need of medical attention.  Medical transport by air normally costs $20,000 or more.  WINGS’ pilots donate their time, planes, and all expenses so that this service is available for FREE to the patient and their family.

PENNY WAR:  Next Sunday begins our annual Sunday School mission project.  This year we are participating in OPERATION STARFISH through Food for the Poor.  Every $75 we raise will feed one starving child in a developing country for one year.  There will be several opportunities to support this mission, including our March Special Mission envelopes, and Loose Change Sunday on March 22.  You may also donate your spare change to the Penny War jar which will be located on the glass case beginning next week, or give a donation to one of our Sunday School children for their class banks.  Watch for updates as we continue our project throughout Lent.
