SUNDAY IS HUMAN RELATIONS DAY
The Human Relations Day offering supports Youth Offender rehabilitation programs, Community Developers self-improvement programs and United Methodist Voluntary Services – community work and advocacy that challenge oppression and injustice in the United States and Puerto Rico. Please consider donating to this worthy cause.
SUNDAY IS BLANKET SUNDAY
Oh how good a warm blanket feels! All of us know the feeling. A blanket can ease pain, up-lift spirits, and make the world seem brighter during disasters that have devastated areas around the world. In such situations, blankets become a tool of survival. The United Methodist Church is a great provider of blankets through UMCOR and our church is doing its share to ensure that blankets will be there when needed. A special offering will be taken for blankets during Blanket Sunday. Show your passion and care to help warm another human being by donating to this mission.
