We are engaged in mission on many levels, from a number of denominational giving programs (for example, the Presbyterian Peace and Global Witness Offering, and United Methodist Committee on Relief), while also supporting our local community ministries such as East Stokes Outreach Ministry in Walnut Cove and the Northern Stokes Food Pantry in Francisco where we regularly donate food, toiletries, clothing and other personal items. We have recently begun collecting items needed by inmates at the Stokes County Jail in Danbury.
Pre-Coved, our church’s very talented musicians offered quarterly Music for the Community, in which and offering was collected for local missions. We also shared our musical gifts and friendship with a monthly music service for long-term care residents in the LifeBrite Hospital in Danbury.
Unfortunately, circumstances have put those events on hold for the moment, but we hope to return to them as safety and hospital regulations will permit.
