STORYBOOK PROJECT

Every month, a team of volunteers go to the Jacksonville Correctional Center with children’s books and recording equipment to visit offenders. They select a book and we record them reading it to their children. We then mail the book and recorded CD to their children to help nurture their relationships. This is a ministry of Lutheran Social Services of Illinois (LSSI). For more information, visit their website.

MISSION SATURDAY

Throughout the year, Faith volunteers gather for a variety of mission projects around our community. Previous projects have included working at the Western Illinois Youth Camp, H.E.L.P.S. Ministry, packing lunches for the Congregational Church free sack lunches, assembling hygiene kits for “Share the Love,” and more.

Every month we support a different mission.  From collecting clothing for our local prison, or cleaning supplies for a soup kitchen, to raising money and awareness for partner ministries in Madagascar or Uganda.
