January Minute for Mission
The January 8 Minute for Mission will be for Rebound. Alternatives for Youth provides a safe environment with personal and academic support for Durham high school students during a short term suspension. Rebound was founded by WSBC member Lizzie Ellis Furlong and has served over 500 students over the past 4 years.
New Mission to Host Refugees
Watts Street will launch a new mission on Epiphany Sunday, January 8, sounding the call for a team to cosponsor a refugee family with Church World Service. All members of the new mission group will receive orientation from CWS to prepare for the family’s arrival. The planning group will meet at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, December 27, in room 102 and is open to all who would like to help with early planning.

The mission baskets in the side foyer and the Fellowship Hall collect donations for outreach kits for Housing for New Hope clients. Items needed for the kits include: socks, underwear, deodorant, tooth brushes, tooth paste, bar soap, washcloths, disposable razors, sanitary napkins or tampons, lotion (small bottles), shampoo and conditioner (small bottles).
