Our Missions Team seeks out opportunities to improve the lives of our church family and our surrounding community. Many of our missions projects focus on collecting items such as shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child to creating Love Bags for the homeless. We also love to help improve the landscapes and interiors of homes in disrepair. Please contact the church if you or someone you know could use our help in completing a need or repair in our community.

Building Mission Trip Opportunity
We will be leaving April 1st and returning April 4th or 5th. This trip is to do some much needed repairs on Plymouth UMC in Plymouth, NC. As many of you know we took the youth and adults to this mission last summer to do repairs on homes in the area. Much like the story of the best painter in town, who had the worst looking house in the neighborhood, we found that there are some repairs needed by our host church. If anyone is interested and can go, please contact Bob Blake (704-224-6870) or Bruce Shuping (704-640-7454). Our goal is to take 10 adults and/or older youth. This trip will be a great blessing to PUMC as well as for those who participate. This trip will be minimal cost to each of you that will go.
The Mission collections for March is food and dry goods for Rowan Helping Ministries. Their shelves need some replenishing, so please donate as much food as you are able every Sunday in the month of March.
NEEDED: Volunteer or two to bring donated food to Rowan Helping Ministries once a week this month. Must be able to drop off donations Mon.-Fri. between 8 AM-5 PM.

CAPSTONE RECOVERY CENTER –
Capstone Recovery Center is a Christian women’s rehab center started right here in Salisbury few years ago. Capstone is impacting lives for Jesus Christ. Capstone is helping women get clean and that is changing the lives of their families and loved ones. Consider getting involved with them.
Capstone Recovery Center is in constant need of paper goods, canned food, dry-goods, hygiene items, ladies clothing, wholesome books, instructional videos and tapes. Please donate to this mission if at all possible. Please bring the items to church and put in the Capstone tote at the back of the sanctuary.
