EMUMC will be serving lunch every third Sunday. Anyone wishing to help should meet at St. John's church in Charleston at 12:15pm. Shifts last about 1-1/2 hours. Youth are reminded this counts as community service time for school!
Elizabeth Memorial is continuously participating in numerous outreach projects, some year-round, others seasonally.
Other Monthly Offerings We Participate In:
1st Sunday -- Money left at the altar rail goes to our Good Samaritan Fund
4th Sunday -- Our 2 cents/Meal Collection; simply place 2 cents for each meal you enjoy throughout the month in a container, bring your offering on the last Sunday of the month, and we donate this offering to Manna Meal.
The Covenant House Food Pantry has a continuing need for reusable tote bags. Many patrons walk or take the bus to the Pantry and the food is much easier to carry in reusable bags. They also need non-perishable foods. Help EMUMC make 2019 their third ton of food donated!
Many thanks for the three carloads of gifts taken to Covenant House for the Adopt-a-Family outreach.
Members of EMUMC rang bells for Heart+Hand Ministries at the Riverwalk Kroger Dec. 4. Anyone wishing to help support this ministry is invited to join us Feb. 22 9:00am-12noon for a work day at the South Charleston facility.
On Dec. 22 several EMUMC members helped distribute toys and turkeys to residents of Oakwood Terrace. Our merry band of Santa and elves delivered turkeys to 10 apartments and presents and gift cards for infants-18 year olds to 22 homes. Many thanks to the Explorers adult Sunday School class and special thanks to Jane Hange for their work organizing and executing this outreach ministry.
Members of the congregation visited shut-ins' homes, rehab facilities, and one of our immigrant family homes to carol and spread the holiday spirit.
