Each fall the members of the Presbyterian Church receive an Undercover Mission Possible assignment patterned after the old TV series "Mission Impossible." They are challenged to purchase "undercover clothing" such as underwear and sweat pants for all ages of elementary school children.

Also 25 percent of a PCUSA Peacemaking Offering taken the first part of October remains in Great Bend. The church Session designated this money to go to the Undercover Mission Possible event this year and a Walmart gift card was purchased which will be used by the schools for unexpected needs throughout the year. Sheryl Neeland, an elementary guidance counselor with the Great Bend school system, takes the responsibility of sharing the donated items with all of the USD 428 elementary schools.
