Kindness mission and gained momentum as the pandemic struck. With the cancelling of in-person church services (due to Covid-19) it unveiled a need to find new ways to
spread joy and evolved into a formal mission at the suggestion of Jon Secaur.
The first Smile Team event was a “drive-thru” held in the church parking lot on
November 14, 2020. We collected (1) food donations for the 4 C’s; (2) hats, gloves,
mittens, scarves, and masks for the Mitten Tree; and (3) Blessing Bags (kits filled with
personal care items) for Family and Community Services. We were excited to be able to hold this event to collect items for these organizations in a safe, socially distanced
manner. Many within our church and others who donated items were provided with a
free hot dog lunch to express our gratitude for their gifts.
The original members of the Smile Team were Becky Tipton, Chair; Dottie Summerlin, Sandi Kossick, Carolin Newell, and Pat Hoskin. We joyfully welcomed our newest
members Kathy Hughes and Marcia Page. Plans are underway for future projects and
events designed to spread joy, love, and plenty of smiles to members of our church, our community, and our world! If you are interested in participating with the Smile Team events, or have a suggestion to offer, please contact Becky Tipton, Chair at: (216) 870-7039. Let’s spread more smiles!

is a mission to families with preschool aged children. For one hour each week these young students, accompanied by their parents or guardians, share music and movement as we dance to songs that teach. Music is followed by two stories and two related craft projects.
