Missions at home and abroad are supported by these activities of the Mission Committee:

  • Collection of food, diapers, baby supplies, etc for the Norfolk Pregnancy Centre, to support their clients who have great needs for basic care items.
  • Collection of food donations to be distributed by the Salvation Army Church to local needy families at Christmas time.
