- Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Ministry
It’s time again for MUMC to participate in the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child’s Shoebox Ministry. This ministry was started in 1993 by the Samaritan’s Purse organization and continues to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ’s love for ALL children worldwide.
This is a wonderful ministry for the whole family to participate in. Please look for an informational display in our Connecting Space. Empty boxes waiting to be filled will be available in the coatroom.
Items to be included in the boxes are school supplies, personal care items, socks, shirts and small toys — these items are always welcome.
Items NOT to include are: all liquids, items that can leak or melt, playdough, batteries, food, candy, war related toys, toy knives or guns, and gambling related items, including playing cards, dominoes, and play money. The box should also not include any religious, racial, or political materials.
The shoeboxes will be due on Sunday, November 11th. Please consider participating in this ministry. It’s a quick and easy way to spread God’s love before the Advent season starts and schedules become very hectic. If you have any questions, please contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-253-4460.
- Holiday Food Baskets Thanksgiving 2018
Thanksgiving is right around the corner. We are asking for Sunday School classes to donate non-perishable food items and monetary donations for the families we support.
Due to the generosity of our congregation, we were able to help 13 families last year. God is good! Food items may be dropped off in the wagon in the coatroom or in classroom “B”. Monetary donations can be placed in the offering plate or in Rosa Mandich’s mailbox in the coatroom. Please mark your donation as being for “the Holiday Food Baskets”.
We are always looking for people to donate turkeys and grocery store gift cards, make phone calls, deliver, sort and shop. If you are willing to help, please fill out the insert in the Sunday bulletin and place it in Rosa Mandich’s mail box.
The Holiday Food Baskets Committee is very thankful to the congregation for their support each year in this wonderful community mission.
