LAITY SUNDAY CELEBRATION

October 23rd

Laity Sunday is a special Sunday defined by the General Conference, “to celebrate the ministry of all Christians”. Laity Sunday is one way we express the deep conviction that all are called to participate in God’s mission in communities that share abundant life in Jesus Christ. This year, the emphasis is on discipleship as covenant ‘together-life’ – the very life of Jesus in and among us, gathered and responsive to the always with us nearness of God. God is near and here to help every life, every place in need of grace.

TRUNK OR TREAT OUTREACH OPPORTUNITY

Big picture

Pinelands UMC will be participating in the annual Mullica Township Trunk or Treat at the rec center on October 28th from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm. We are also collecting bags of candy and/or small trinkets to hand out to the children that will be trick or treating on this night. This is a wonderful way to reach out to our community. Each year we hand out invitations to Church and Sunday School as well as general church information along with all of the goodies. Please volunteer to help; you won’t regret this event! You don’t need a trunk…I already have one we can use! We just need helpers!

THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE

Collecting items NOW through ADVENT

Pinelands Church will be collecting food items from now until Christmas for two important food distributions that are coming up (these are separate from our amazing food pantry). Last year with the help of many community partners we were able to supply food baskets and turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas to over 35 families. It was enough food for each family to not only give them Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner but to help them through many weeks with important food and pantry staples for their household. These food distributions stay local to our community through families in our local school district and the Mullica / Washington Township Community. It services many children whose families otherwise struggle with food insecurities.


Please donate turkeys if you are able and any non-perishable pantry items. We will take anything as long as the dates are not expired. If you plan on buying new items to donate please see the suggestion list for ideas. If you are unable to bring items to church please call Liz Rabush 609-412-5918 to arrange a pick up of food items and storage of turkeys. This is so important to our community, thank you for supporting this mission each year.

SUGGESTION LIST FOR FOOD / PANTRY DONATIONS:

  • Frozen Turkeys / Turkey Breasts

  • Boxed Potatoes / Boxed Rice

  • Stuffing Mix / Gravy

  • Cans of Soup / Cans of Tuna or Chicken

  • AppleSauce / Cranberry Sauce

  • Non perishable breakfast items - cereal / oatmeal
