A MESSAGE FROM MISSIONS
Summer surely flew by! Can't believe it is September already and it's time for back to school.
The Missions Committee and the Bible School Class would like to thank everyone that donated school supplies for the kids in the Milltown School District. The school really appreciated our help. There are always children in need right here in Milltown, so if you would like to supply a Target gift card at any time during the year, the school social worker would use it to purchase clothing and other items for the kids that cannot afford the necessary items.
The Missions Committee would like to thank everyone that has already contributed to the Healthy Vision Project. This project will continue throughout the year. Dr Kelleman from across the street has partnered with us to supply vouchers in various amounts. The money will be used to support kids in the Milltown School District that cannot afford eye exams or glasses. If anyone would like to contribute, please write a check to the church and put in the memo area "for vision mission project."
Thank you for your continued support of the missions projects at the United Methodist Church at Milltown.
A prayer for our kids as they return to school taken from Isaiah 26:3; Philippians 4:6-7; Romans 5:1
Lord, I pray that the kids will experience the peace of God this year that exceeds all understanding. I pray they will not worry about things they cannot control, but that You will guard their hearts and minds and keep them trusting in You. I pray they will not only enjoy the peace of God, but peace with God. I pray they will develop a spirit of gratitude and thanksgiving as they look to You daily for their needs. I pray that You will give them the capacity for joy that bubbles up from Your peace.
