February Mission Baskets
The mission baskets in the side foyer and the Fellowship Hall collect donations of non-perishable food for Walltown Neighborhood Ministries Food Pantry. The program has been flooded with phone calls and referrals from the Walltown community due to changes in the Medicaid, Medicare and the NC Food Stamp program. Please see the list of items needed next to the baskets. Contact David Heist (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
Our February 11 Minute for Mission will be for Restorative Justice Durham, a project of the Religious Coalition for a Nonviolent Durham. They are a collaboration of people of faith, community partners, and criminal justice practitioners who seek a restorative process that repairs the harm of crime and restores relationships, individually and collectively, that were hurt by wrongdoing. This volunteer-led restorative justice process brings together the person harmed and the person who caused the harm, as well as their supporters, family and community members, to talk about the incident and to come to an agreement for how the person who caused the harm can take responsibility for their actions and how the victims’ needs can be met by the process. Contact Kacey Reynolds Schedler or Marcia Owen for more information. Checks should be made out to WSBC, with RJDurham noted in the memo line.
