Spirit Lake Ministry



This project is a special outreach to Native American children through a program sponsored by the Spirit Lake Ministry Center in North Dakota (an approved United Methodist Volunteer in Mission destination). In 2018 we gathered donations and arranged them as gift-filled boxes for 22 individual children. These gift-filled boxes were mailed to the Spirit Lake Ministry Center in ND and were distributed as part of their Christmas outreach program reaching children who live on reservations in ND, SD, and Minnesota.

Ongoing throughout the first part of the year, we are collecting donations for Christmas 2019 (new items only, please!): winter hats, mittens and gloves; bars of mild soap; soft toothbrushes; toothpaste (expiration date in 2020); small toys, crayons, and small coloring books or writing pads. The age groups include: 3-5; 6-8; 9-12; 13 and older.  Thank you to everyone who has already donated!  For information about Spirit Lake Ministry Center or this outreach project, please contact Lucy DeBarge  through the church office. Thank you for your generosity!
