Mission Open House

Posted on

Come help us finish fundraising!  We will hold an Open House event March 29-31 at Rockville Christian Church’s youth building.  Shop our Mission Store of handmade jewelry and home decor, participate in a wrap bracelet make-n-take workshop, buy baked goods and get some great thrift shop finds to support this ministry.  We’ll also have information about what we do with all this time we spend in Poland and, of course, a jar for straight up donations.

We welcome contributions of homemade goodies for the bake sale and can definitely use some help setting up Thursday morning and cleaning up Saturday after we close up.

We hope to see you there!

Cards for a Cause Fundraiser

Posted on Updated on

My awesome cousin, Shannon Soucie, has offered to provide us with this great fundraising opportunity again through Usborne Books Cards for a Cause program. Last year, many of you took advantage of this great chance to stock up on beautiful cards at a terrific price and help us meet our expense needs.  Several who did, told me that the cards were so much better than they were expecting and have asked if we will repeat this fundraiser…. so here it is!

Choose from 4 cute box sets and you get
30 awesome greeting cards for $30!
(I don’t know about you, but the last card I bought in a store was almost four bucks, so I think that’s a deal.)

43% comes back to support our mission trip!

If you’re interested, here are some details…

  • There are 4 different box sets, pictured in detail below (click to enlarge)
    • All Occasion Box #1
    • All Occasion Box #2
    • The Kids Birthday Box
    • Thanks & Blanks Box
  • The sale runs today through April 9.
  • Payment ($30 per box) is due at the time of order.
  • Boxes will be shipped to me late-April, and I’ll deliver them to you.  If you are not local, please consider adding $5 to help cover the cost of shipping them to you.

Making Progress!

Posted on Updated on

Screenshot 2016-01-17 12.46.53We’ve been slowly climbing to our fundraising goal for this year’s trip, and we’re excited to announce that we just crossed the half-way mark!  Between our own savings, generous donations from several supporters, Mission Store sales and our recent Simply A”door”able fundraiser, we’ve been able to raise $4,824.00 of the approximate $9000 we need to make the trip happen.   We’d prefer to purchase our airfare no later than the end of March, but sooner would be even better.  Currently, prices are actually a little lower than they were when we bought last year, so we’d like to move on it soon!  We are trying to nail down our travel dates and then we’ll secure our tickets as soon as we have the money to cover them.   After that, we will still need to raise/save the remaining funds for everything else (ground transportation, lodging, meals, and the cost of the programs we help run and service projects we do while we’re there.  

A huge thank you to all who have contributed to getting us this far, and to all who will consider partnering with us.  Here are some ways you can do that:

  • Soup & Salad Luncheon on Sunday, January 24 after 2nd service.
  • We have another Simply A”door”able fund raiser coming up on March 31.  It’s fun!  Come make something cute for your home or for a gift, and a portion of the profits will go to our mission trip.
  • Check our Financial Support page to keep up with the progress and need or to make a donation.
  • We’ll also be doing a yard sale this spring.

Thank you!

After our wonderful Day of Sharing & Giving last Sunday, we are just a little over $1700 short of the price of our tickets!  We’ve had several people ask if the Mission Store items will be available offline again in the weeks to come, so we will continue to have items on display for the next couple of weeks or until we can buy our tickets.  We’ll be moving the tables to the hallway by the offices (RCC).  A donation jar will also be available.
