MISSION OF THE MONTH:

THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS BOXES

As we gather this year with family and prepare our hearts to give thanks to God, let also prepare our hearts to think of those who are in need. NMI will be getting ready to make baskets for individuals and families on behalf of our church. If you would like to help, we are needing cash donations for grocery shopping, turkeys and hams. Please bring donations to the church.
