Missions

MONTHLY MISSIONS


This is the start of a very busy giving season. There are a lot of ways to give. Please do not feel obligated, but if you are interested in helping the following are opportunities we are focusing on:


Stockings/ Stocking Stuffers- We will be collecting stocking stuffers to give to the UMC Children’s Home, info will come soon on specific needs. Our Parent Connection will help to fill the stockings and prepare them for delivery as part of our December missions.


Giving Tree- Our Giving Tree will be up soon. The Giving Tree helps sponsor 60 area children for Christmas through the food pantries. A tree will be in the main hallway with “ornaments” on it representing children’s needs/wishes. Each ornament will contain 5 pieces: 1 for clothing, 1 for shoes, 1 for hats/mittens, 1 for underwear/socks and 1 for a special wish. There is a sign out book by the tree and you may sign out 1 or more pieces of the ornament (ex.- you may want to only purchase the shoes, or the toy, or maybe you take all of the pieces and sponsor the whole child)


New and/or Gently Used toys- There will be a table in the main hallway to collect these items. Please place new toys on the top of the table and gently used toys underneath (please do not bring toys that are broken or have pieces missing). These toys are used by the local food pantries to give to families who did not sign up in time to be on the Giving Tree.


Thanks so much for all of your support and help. This season is full of hope, peace, love and joy. It can also be full of stress. By helping others you will be helping to relieve some of the stress that the holidays can bring. Of course, this is all optional! The last thing we want to do is add stress to you! If you are able and willing to help in any way- THANK YOU!
