We are about halfway into our Upward Basketball season where we have been offering concessions to raise money for our Spring Break House Build Trip. Our church family has been very generous in providing items that we use for our concessions. We have donations of Gatorade, cans of soda, chips, candy bars, monetary donations and even pizza that we sold by the slice. It has been a great start to our fundraising efforts.
While we have five more Saturdays of Upward to go, there are two other ways that people can support our Mexico Team.
For those in the Wilmington area: Sunday, March 6th will be Green Bucket Sunday.
We have used the green buckets in the past and we will use them the first Sunday in March. The green buckets will be located at the doors exiting our Ministry Center and any money that is placed in the buckets will go toward the Mexico trip. This is a simple way to allow people to give toward the trip in a way that goes above what they give to the church.
Last year we used the green buckets to help reach our goal of $4,000 to send to 1MISSION to build a home for a family in Mexico. It allowed our who church family to participate, no matter the size of the gift.
For those in or out of the Wilmington area: Give Online.
A number of months ago our church family was given the opportunity to give online. So many of the things we do now, including paying bills, is done online. You can now give to the overall work of WCC or specifically to the Mexico trip through our Online Giving Page. If you want to give specifically toward the House Build Trip, you can select that in the drop down menu.
There are so many great mission organizations and projects being done throughout the world. We are excited about our partnership with 1MISSION and appreciate all the support from our church family and friends. Thanks to all those who are giving toward the trip and praying for our team.
