Thank you for your generosity in supporting the EMUMC missions. Donations may be brought to the church entryway, Monday-Thursday, 8:00am-1:00pm; Sunday 8:30am- 12:30 pm; or call to schedule a drop-off.
The EMUMC Cereal Sunday Collection during March was super successful! A total of 100 pounds (yes 100 even!) of many varieties of cereal, pop top soup and pasta, and juice boxes were delivered to Manna Meal on March 30 to help feed the approximately 125 breakfast diners daily. Thanks to all who contributed!
Books for the Little Library are needed. There is a basket in the Narthex under the coat rack for donations. Valerie Roberts is managing our little library (located to the left of our parking lot entrance). Please see her if you have questions.
Starting Sunday, Nov. 1, the fishbowl will be out on the Sundays we have drive-up communion. Or you may submit your Two-Cents-a-Meal offering with your regular offering to the church office - just be sure to designate that's what it's for!
Margie Turley and Jane Hange delivered 311 diapers and pull-ups, 5 packages of baby wipes, and 446 feminine hygiene products to grateful Sojourners Shelter staff on March 2nd to conclude the EMUMC mission collection for February. The Shelter maintains a supply of these products for the approximately 75 women and families they house at any given time throughout the year. Many thanks to our congregation!
Members of our congregation volunteer to assist at local COVID vaccination clinics.
EMUMC provided eight pizzas, drinks, salads, and cookies for residents at the Sojourner's Shelter on March 28. Because the shelter was on a temporary lock-down at the time of the dinner, only about 40 residents were on premises. Thanks to the generous contributions of our congregation, we have enough "pizza funds" to host another pizza party in the near future.
