Faith In Action Sunday March 11
Faith in Action Sunday – March 11, 2018
Located in Catalina, AZ, Mountain Shadows Presbyterian Church has been enacting it’s mission statement “Centered in Christ, Caring for Community” in a special way for several years. On a specific Sunday, the entire congregation is encouraged to put their “faith into action” by participating in one of many service projects that help MSPC mission partners in the Tucson area. This special Faith on Action Sunday is scheduled for March 11, 2018.
There are eight projects that congregants will participate in this year.
(1) IMPACT of Southern AZ: Church members will provide services to people with a need for modest home/yard improvement.
(2) Brookdale Care Facility: Singing talents will be offered to residents of this senior living facility on Oracle Road.
(3) Interfaith Community Services: 80+ Easter cards will be lovingly made for homebound residents who receive meals by ICS.
(4) Little African Dresses: Dresses and other items of clothing are made from pillow cases and will be packaged and shipped to children in Africa.
(5) Letters to Mission Partners: Letters will be written to missionaries who have ongoing relationships with MSPC.
(6) Sister Jose Women’s Center: Gently used or new women’s clothing will be collected and sorted for the Sister Jose Women’s Center for homeless women located in South Tucson. Hygiene products will also be collected and delivered to the shelter.
(7) Reading Seed of Literacy Connects: Children’s books for early readers ages 5-9 will be collected, cleaned, and prepared for the Literacy Connect children’s literacy program in Tucson.
(8) Tri-Community Food Bank in Mammoth: Needed products will be collected, sorted and delivered to people in need in the Mammoth area.
The entire congregation of MSPC is encouraged to participate in one of the projects above or in many other ways: by donating items that support these projects; by making a monetary contribution to Faith in Action Sunday; by participating in the facilities set-up and clean-up efforts on FIA Sunday; by participating in the luncheon celebration that completes this special day; by preparing food and helping in the kitchen; or by praying for this special church event.
