Shoeman Water Projects
Save lives by giving your shoes the boot! Bring your used and new shoes to Dorsett Village Church, and Shoeman Water Projects will turn your shoes into clean drinking water. Once collected, the shoes get a second life through sale to exporters. Money from the sale of the shoes purchases well drilling rigs, water purification systems, and other supplies to bring clean, fresh water to those in need.
Bring your used and new shoes, tie or rubber band them into pairs, and place them in the drop-off bin in the foyer. To learn more about ShoemanWater Projects, visit http://www.shoemanwater.org/.

Each Friday afternoon, elementary school children receive a backpack of healthy food and snacks. On Monday, the children return the empty backpack to their school to be restocked with food for the following Friday.
To find out if your family qualifies for the program: Contact your particular Pattonville elementary school counselor. Program participation will be kept as confidential as possible. A parent or guardian must complete and sign a permission form, which is available from the elementary school counselor.

Mission 1:27 is a ministry of Dorsett Village Church that encourages, educates, and equips Christians to care for orphans as directed in James 1:27 – "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is to look after widows and orphans in their distress and keep oneself away from being polluted by the world." We believe all Christians are called to care for orphans in some way – prayer, financial support, mentoring a foster child, becoming a foster and/or adoptive parent, mission trips, sponsorship, etc. YOU can make a difference.
