Once again, the church school will be raising funds for our Barbara’s Gifts Mission Project. This year we will be making at least 100 health kits to be delivered to the homeless in NYC during our Midnight Run Mission Trip at the end of the summer.
During the month of February donations of toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, washcloths, and shampoo will be collected in the fellowship hall. This year we will be adding rain ponchos, reusable cups and mini flashlights to our health kits. If you would like to donate money, please make checks payable to FPCPJ and write “Barbara’s Gifts” on the memo line. The children will assemble the kits.
For over a dozen years, our church school has continued to carry on this mission project in memory of church school teacher Barbara Bielenda, daughter of the late Joe and Deanna Magguilli. Barbara was instrumental in getting the children involved in this wonderful outreach project and since her passing, the CE Committee has made it a priority to continue the work that she began here all those years ago. If you have any questions or can donate a large amount of a particular item, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Donations can be dropped off at the Church (107 South/Main Streets, Port Jefferson NY 11777) Monday to Friday 10 am to 2 pm or on Sundays at the 10 am Worship Service.
