Help with the new Christian Education Mission Project. Sunday School children, youth and adults are invited to bring paper products, including toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, and kleenex to be used by Tippecanoe Presbyterian Church for their program serving their homeless neighbors. Sunday School offerings will also be donated to support Tippecanoe’s homeless project. Items can be placed in the box at the back of the sanctuary or in the box on the 3rd floor of the CE building.
