The Missions Committee once again had the duty and pleasure of distributing the bounty of Recycle for a Reason (R4R) contributions. Guided by two principles, bringing people to Christ and helping to relieve suffering and poverty, Missions has deliberated and chosen the following for grants:
Cynthia Lowe Fund: $1,500
Church Sign Fund: $1,500
Birchwood Camp/Bruce Roberts Fund: $1,500
Brother Francis Shelter: $400
On Super Bowl Sunday, Missions Committee also hosted a Souper Bowl Bean – A -Thon where a variety of bean soups were served and sold. $400 was raised for Bean’s Cafe, a charitable organization located on East 3rd Avenue in Anchorage, which is dedicated to feeding our neighbors in need.
