Missions

"In The Beginning" Baby Pantry
The "In the Beginning” Baby Pantry" is open at the Holly Presbyterian Church on 1st and 3rd Friday of each month from 10 a.m. until 12:00 noon. There will be clothing, diapers, and toiletries available for children.

We need workers. There is a sign-up sheet in the Narthex. New workers are welcome, and will be paired up with those who have worked before. If you would like to help, please see Cathy or Donna.


Prayers For Our Missionary Families
The Holly Presbyterian Church supports two missionary families as part of our ongoing outreach to the world: the Keefer family (serving Christ through their Athletes in Action ministry at U of M in Ann Arbor, Michigan) and the Iobst family (serving Christ through the Operation Transit ministry in Paris, France).  We are called to act as the hands and feet of Christ in our world, and because we cannot all serve in full time ministry, we offer our support financially, and spiritually, to those who do. Please pray for these families and consider sending them a note or e-mail of encouragement.
