2021 WHITE GIFTS
December 12, 2021
(Following a congregational lunch in the CLC)

 
As the holiday season quickly approaches, we are reminded of Jesus’ words, “It is better to give than to receive.”  This holiday season share your blessings with those in need by generously giving to the 2021 White Gifts.

Each year Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church purchases food to fill boxes to give to families in need.  We have successfully filled as many as 350 boxes in previous years.  Each box feeds a family of four.  This mission is funded by contributions from the congregation. 

Thirty-five dollars ($35.00) buys a large box of food. You may honor the memory of a loved one or pay tribute to a living person for food boxes for those in need in and around Augusta.  Please make checks payable to Reid Memorial with “White Gift” noted in the memo line.  Include the information in the link WHITE GIFTS so that we may honor those you love. 

To give online through Ream click HERE and select Christmas-White Gift
(include the name of the loved one you would like honored)

Guatemala International Mission Team
Adults & 8th-12th Grade Reid Youth
June 18-June 25, 2022


This trip will be to Panjachel, Guatemala working with Porch de Salomon. Click here to be directed to Porch de Solomon's website.

Porch de Solomon is ministry presence in Panajachel, Guatemala that provides weekly worship gatherings and humanitarian aid. Modeled after Solomon's Porch in Jerusalem, a place where all people could come to get help and would be received in a way that is open and accessible.

One of the great things about Porch de Solomon is that they require mission teams to leave a tangible benefit. For us, this primarily means we will be helping to build a small cement block house for an impoverished indigenous family alongside skilled workers. Porch de Salomon just finished the 103rd house in Panajachel. It takes about 6-8 weeks to build a house with Porch.   We will get to know the profile of the family we are going to be working with in the late spring. We will be helping in this process of building a house alongside the family and indigenous builders. There is not any skill level required and different levels of work will be available. This house will provide a seed of hope for the family.

When: June 18-25, 2022 (Saturday-Saturday)
Cost: $1500 ($750 to Porch for the week + airfare).

There will be fundraisers for both individual and the group to help defray this cost. The $750 includes all meals, lodging, building supplies for our mission project of building a house, excursions, and travel in country.

Who: For youth 9th-graduated 12th 

Where we'll stay: Hotel California
 

The Hotel California is a property that is owned by Porch and is above the cafe. The hotel has 15 rooms,  all with private hot-water bathrooms, is where our mission team will stay.
