Local Mission – Partner in Education- The Kitchen Sunday School Class need church members’ help in collecting polo/uniform shirts for students who attend “Excel Academy.” As a partner to the school, the Kitchen Class provides support for books, playground equipment, mentoring strategies as well as uniform shirts for students. The school population is often in need of shirts for middle and high school girls and boys. The colors of the shirts are solid pink, yellow, black and white. Preference is for long sleeves. Sizes needed are: girls XL, Misses S, M, XL and XXL; and Men’s S, M, XL, XXL, XXXL in either color. The shirts can be purchased at Wal-Mart, online at JC Penney and in the JC Penney store. There are also two school uniform stores in Morrow. Your support will be greatly appreciated. Please drop them off near the Anchor in the box labeled “Excel Uniform Shirts.”

Food Ministry-During these busy summer months, please remember the need for food and hygiene items for the Food Pantry. Canned goods and any other non-perishable food items or hygiene items are always appreciated.

Teachers: If you are a teacher who attends MPC please contact the church office.  The Local Missions Committee would like to recognize all of our teachers on August 7 in worship. 

Bible Study: Ginger Irby will be leading a Run for God Bible Study beginning Wednesday, August 24. This is a 12 week Bible Study and devotional for all types of runners and walkers.

The Turkey Day 5k will be the perfect race for us on Thanksgiving morning and gives us exactly 12 weeks, not counting the week of fall break in September, to complete the course.
