ADOPT A PERSON IN MISSION
This year ten youth and four chaperones will be going to San Diego, CA from August 2-7 to work at a soup kitchen, clothing cupboard, or other agency that serves the poor of that city.
Naturally, this is an expensive trip - we only take one of those every 3-5 years because of the cost. While the youth group has done fund-raisers and we've received a few donations, but we could still use extra help.
Would you be interested in "adopting" a person in mission? It costs $279 for the mission trip itself (through YouthWorks this year) and $550 a person for round trip airfare. We are fortunate that three people paid for the trip and their airfare up front. And Melissa received a donation for her airfare. Any amount you donate would be greatly appreciated!
Now here's the kicker. When they return, our stalwart missioners will give back to you as their way of saying thanks! They'd be willing to mow your lawn, rake your leaves, vacuum your house, bake cookies or a cake, make a dinner, or do a service project to honor you - like visiting a nursing home or helping stock shelves at CUMAC.
Just download the donation form here or at the FUMC Facebook page, or pick up a form in the Family Room at church.
Thanks for your help!
OUR SUNDAY SCHOOL PLEDGES TO PROVIDE DISASTER RELIEF
On May 3, our Sunday school kids discussed what they could do to help the people of Nepal in light of the devastating earthquake in April.
They decided to raise money by having a lemonade and bake goods stand outside the church on June 7.
Please come Saturday, June 6 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. to our Bake-athon. We will bake cookies, cupcakes, and brownies, and make lemonade. Everyone is asked to bring a mix for the goodies of your choice and the appropriate ingredients.
And don't forget to pick up some of those yummy goodies on June 7!
