Head Start Hats & Gloves Collection Ministry:
The Head Start Hats & Gloves Collection Ministry is headed by Lou Clingenpeel. This ministry collects hat and gloves for our local Head Start Program to be distributed the first full week of December each year.
Annual Christmas Extravaganza Ministry:
The “Christmas Extravaganza” Ministry is co-headed by Rev. Deb Coggin and Denise (Dee) Fenninger-Coggin. Since 2017 we have created an event for local children where the day is all about them.
Due to COVID-19 the event was not held in 2020. Instead Santa visited New Light on December 19 and socially distanced goody bags and Bombas Socks were distributed to local children and parents.
Special Events and Fundraising:
Raffles, movie nights, special guest concerts, spaghetti dinners or themed dinners, yard sales, and much, much, more. All ideas considered, volunteers always needed.
Educational Programs and Bible Studies:
These are arranged by the pastor, although many of them are lay led. The needs of the community range from bible study and spiritual care to financial workshops and craft collectives. Please see the calendar for scheduled events, or talk to the pastor if you’d like to lead a group.
Besides these ministries there is the Board of Directors. Board members are voted in by the congregation at our annual meeting in December. If you would like to be considered for a board position please speak to a member of the current board (Harold Gress, David Washington, or Teresa Tygart).
