Church is about PEOPLE. People together praising and worshipping Jesus. People together forming friendships. People together encouraging and loving one another. People working together to help others. If you feel like you are missing something in your life, perhaps we can help you find it. We welcome you EVERY Sunday morning. On Together Sunday, come to church in jeans and a t-shirt. And bring a friend!
Meal Packing EventSaturday, September 21, 2019 two shifts, morning and afternoon
The National/International Missions committee is sponsoring a Meal Packing Event on Saturday, September 21, 2019 in partnership with Midwest Mission Distribution Center and sponsored by the FUMC Unity and Diversity Committee to complete a Food Pack Event in which we will be organizing two groups of 100 volunteers, 10 years and older, in two sessions to pack 54,000 meals or 9,000 bags. The session times are 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 - 3:30 p.m. Volunteers will be asked to sign up to work one session. During the morning sessions we will have a snack-packing event for children 9 years old and under. The children will pack snack foods for our local food pantry.
Midwest Mission Distribution Center will supply all food pack ingredients and packing equipment and will be responsible for the food shipment to a Central or South American location (TBD). Our leadership team of Bonnie Albert, Karyn Custer-Jankowski, and Michael Strayer will be forming event committees to organize setup, sign-in, children snack packing, and cleanup. Volunteers will need to sign up for this event in Fellowship Hall on Sunday mornings.
The last Food Pack was held in May 2013. Do you remember that we all wore white hair nets? We packed just over 42,000 meals with 233 volunteers. Click here for pictures of that event.
