CLOTHES FOR CHILDREN AT MATTHEW 28 ORPHANAGE IN HAITI - We are continuing our collection of cotton fabrics to make dresses and pants for the children at the orphanage. Also being collected are girls' tees (any color including white which can be worn under the pillow-case dresses for church), elastic, grosgrain ribbon, and buttons. After these items have been collected, there will be a "sew-in" for those who wish to participate-- (no skills needed except for machine sewing) — cutting, pinning, machine sewing, pressing, inserting elastic, sewing buttons, etc. Or if you prefer, you may work on this project independently. Your contributions can be dropped in the box in the narthex.
The Central Florida Presbytery and BIRP are sponsoring a mission trip to Cuba the first week in December. The group will be limited to 10-12 persons and will be visiting the churches in the Del Centro Presbytery, which is a four-hour ride from Havana in the agricultural area of Cuba. This is a "getting-to-know-you" and "making-friends" trip with much interaction with the members of the clergy and congregations, visiting their towns, and learning about their culture. Inasmuch as BIRP has this year started a partnership with the Del Centro Presbytery, it is hoped that half of the participants would come from the BIRP churches. If you are interested, please contact Diane Watkins of the Central Florida Presbytery or Cheryl Mahan, Pastor Shepp, or Frances Fernald.
Carepacks for Homeless – Consider packing several gallon size ziploc bags to keep in your car to give to people who are asking for food or donations. Suggested items: non-perishable snack items, bottles of water, toiletries (travel size items of toothpaste, soap, etc.).
