Red Bird Mission Trip

Wednesday, January 31st, 2024

The Red Bird Mission in Beverly, Kentucky serves the physical, educational and spiritual needs of Appalachia. Red Bird Mission is a ministry of the United Methodist Church. There are opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to participate in this trip that will happen Oct. 6-11, 2024. If you’d like to be on the mission team for 2024, contact Gene Smith.

Some examples of work projects are roof replacement, small room additions, painting, building porches or ramps, and grounds keeping. Other light-duty work is available such as office work, craft and community store helpers, and recycling. A single fee covers the cost of each person’s lodging, meals, and materials used.


Puzzle Exchange

Monday, January 29th, 2024

Calling all jigsaw puzzle fanatics! On Feb. 25 we will hold a Puzzle Exchange. If you enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles, stop by our puzzle-in-progress in the Brighton Campus Community Room and help work on a puzzle. Plus, beginning Feb. 11, bring some of your old puzzles and on Feb. 25 take home some that are “new to you.”  The jigsaw puzzles can be any size and for any age. There is no charge for the puzzles, but donations are welcome and will go toward helping to buy a work van for Red Bird Mission, our Van-tastic Mission of the Year. Contact Vicki Dutcher or Pastor Lynn for more information.

Scrap Metal Drive

See complete list

If you need items to be picked up, contact Ginger VanBlaricum, 810-772-1863. Items must be outside or in an open garage (volunteers can not enter your home, thank you for your understanding).
By contributing your unwanted metallic items in this way, you are reducing the amount of waste into land fills and contributing to mission work — all money raised from the salvaged metal is for Red Bird Mission. Volunteers separate the metal from donated items to increase the salvaged value.
Fun fact…….when tearing apart a dryer. We get nine feet of small wire, the cord, the motor, a circuit board, the outside casing, which gets flattened, and usually a metal drum.
By separating all these items, more money is raised for missions.
