"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”  

Matthew 28:19-20

Thank you to our Tompkins church family for loving on 411 international kids through our Samaritan's Purse Shoebox effort this year. Remember that each box will be delivered with the Gospel message, an invitation to accept Christ as Savior as well as discipleship follow-up. You have planted seeds all over the world and "...My word that goes out from my mouth...will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." (Isaiah 55: 11)

The first Sunday of each month (Dec. 4) is the non-perishable food collection for Southern Care Hospice. Drop off your donation in the foyer of the sanctuary and it will be delivered Monday morning to their office so they can use it to support families going through hospice. 


Lottie Moon Christmas Offering prayer guides and offering envelopes are available in the sanctuary. During the Christmas season, we are reminded of the sacrificial lives of missionaries around our world and what we can do to support their ministries through prayer and through giving. One way that we can love on our own Tompkins family as well as support our international missionaries is by participating in the Rennie Bedsole Christmas Card Exchange. Drop off your Christmas cards (no stamps or addresses needed) in one of the two baskets in the sanctuary. They will be sorted and placed in the mailbox in the back hallway. Each Sunday in December, they'll be delivered to the Sunday School classes but are available to be picked up anytime from the mailbox. We look forward to witnessing our Tompkins family grow closer together through the encouragement of this ministry. There's a church on the altar to collect the Lottie Moon offerings.
