"A Slice of Heaven" pie contest and sale

Area churches are competing in the "A Slice of Heaven" pie contest. Homemade pies will be brought to the SE side of the Monroe County courthouse lawn on Saturday September 20 from 8:00 am-10:00 am to be judged. Celebrity judges will determine the winners out of three categories and prizes will be awarded. A grand prize will be given to the best out of the three winners along with a trophy the winner will keep until next year's competition. Judging will take place from 10:00 am-12:00 pm. Spirit 95 will be on-site from 11:00 am-2:00 pm and will announce the winners at 12:00 pm.

"Debtless for the Homeless"

The "Debtless for the Homeless" initiative is continuing in a concentrated effort to retire the Mission's mortgages. A total of $26,548.76 has been raised since the latter part of February-April 2014. We were contacted in May by a donor offering a "Matching Challenge" gift of $14,000. If this could be matched it would retire one of the mortgages. We have seen an increase last year and so far this year in those coming to us for food and shelter. Please prayerfully consider helping us with this goal.

Be sure to mark your gift "Debtless for the Homeless" and mail to:
