Opportunites to Give

You Can Make a DifferenceMaking a Difference at EUMC

Throughout the years, there are numerous opportunities for you to share your time, talents, gifts and service.  Please do not feel like you have to do all of them – look over the list and decides the ones to which God is calling you – and then go for it!

You can view our current volunteer schedule here.

Operation Christmas Child – Fill one of the shoeboxes provided so that children in need around the world will have a good Christmas!  A list of suggested items to put in the boxes is available.  Empty boxes are on the counter across from the Welcome Center.  Filled boxes should be returned no later than November 13th.  Sponsored by the United Methodist Women.

Rotating Homeless Shelter – Our church is partnering with Wrights AME Church to sponsor the shelter the week after Thanksgiving (November 28th – December 5th).  Help is needed for intake, dinner preparation and serving, hospitality and overnight stays.  Donations of food and supplies are also needed.  To sign up to help, see the sign-up poster on the Missions bulletin board in the Hospitality Area.

Mitten Tree – The Ruth/Sarah Circle invites you to donate new hats, gloves, scarves and underwear for children (from infant through 15 years) for the Mitten Tree project.  Place donations in the bin in the Welcome Center area any Sunday in November.  The donations will be delivered to the Help Center in early December.

Angel Tree Project – Angel Tree provides Christmas presents for children of incarcerated parents.  On Sunday, November 20th, the Angel Tree will be set up in the Welcome Center area.  Take an angel ornament on which you will find a gift listed.  Return the gift (wrapped) and it, along with a Bible, will be delivered to the recipient’s home.

Cookie Walk - The United Methodist Women will have their annual Cookie Walk on Saturday, December 10th from 9 a.m. to 12 noon (or until the cookies are sold out).  In order to make this a success, they need lots and lots of cookies, which means they need lots and lots of help from bakers in our church!  Sign up to participate on one of the inserts that will appear in the bulletin, or email Judy at Tannerjudy31@gmail.com.

Poinsettias and Nets for Christmas Eve – Purchase a poinsettia to adorn our sanctuary for our Christmas Eve services in honor of or in memory of someone you love – or, if you don’t want or need the poinsettia, make a donation toward the United Methodist Church’s “Imagine No Malaria” campaign.  All names (for both poinsettias and anti-malaria nets) will be listed in a bulletin insert on Christmas Eve and Christmas Sunday.  The first day to place your orders will be on Sunday, November 27th via a bulletin insert or online here. .
