Missions & Ministry
A MESSAGE FROM MISSIONS
Throughout the winter months we will be collecting food suitable for the cold weather like soup, pasta, tomato sauce, hot chocolate, coffee, instant oatmeal etc. We will use the donations to support local community food banks and local families housing other family members displaced from the hurricanes. Please leave you donations in Friendship Hall near the food shelves.
The Giving Tree this year will continue the tradition of giving gifts to the elderly that are living in nursing homes. Most of the donations will go to Rose Mountain. Some of the folks that live in nursing homes have no family, and the gifts we give are the only gifts they receive. Some special gifts will be going to our Church members in other various homes. The tree will be in Friendship Hall. Please take a tag and bring your unwrapped gift along with the tag back to Church by December 17th.
We will be wrapping the gifts on Tuesday December 19th at 6:30 PM. All are welcome to come help wrap. If possible bring a pair of scissors and tape. LARGE gift bags are needed for larger items and lap blankets.
The Local School Districts would also appreciate Target Gift Cards that the school nurse will use to purchase jackets and other essentials needed for the students when the family cannot afford to buy them.
Thank you for your continued support of the mission projects at the United Methodist Church at Milltown.
