Missions Focus - September

September MISSION Focus

         Rise Against Hunger

           Nearly 20 volunteers from our church family will participate in the Rise Against Hunger project on Saturday, September 22 at the Vandergrift UMC.  We sill have a few more openings, so if you are interested, contact Janet McKelvey.  Our church family has contributed $1150.00 to this event.  Six neighboring churches will share their money and participate to make this effective project a sucess.

      UMCOR

          Our church family will collect the 3 remaining items for the UMCOR hygiene kits.  These following items will be added to the 5 items we collected in August and will be taken to the Eastbrook Mission Barn in New Castle to be assembled into completed kits by volunteers and sent out to persons in need:

          1. Bath size soap - not Ivory or Jergens due to the moisture amounts.  Do not remove the soap bar from the original packaging.  Must be at least 3 oz or larger.

            2. Combs - must have at least 6" of teeth.  No picket combs or hair picks.

            3.  Toenail or Fingernail Clippers - Do not remove from original packaging

     COMMUNITY FOOD BANK

          The food bank continues to pick up our contributions of boxed food, peanut butter and canned goods each month.  Remember to bring your items in for this great need.  Food Bank containers are at each church doorway.
