DWELLING PLACE We give heart-felt thanks to Ruth Circle for serving the Dwelling Place in October, and joys for the service of Magdalene Circle assisted by Judith Circle in November. On Friday, November 3, the Dwelling Place soup kitchen will be celebrating 30 years of serving meals with a 6:30 pm pot luck. All volunteers and friends are invited to attend! Bring your favorite dish and please join us in the celebration.
3rd ANNUAL FEAST OF ST. PAUL'S - AWESOME! Just in case you didn't see our e-mail blast "thank you", I want to reinforce how grateful the Outreach Committee is for the support of our congregation and community. We may have been low in numbers (more than what I was expecting), but overwhelming in generosity. The evening's proceeds, $851(yup, you read it correctly) will be used in the months ahead to help offset unexpected food supply expenses as we serve our St. Paul's dining guests. You are "AWESOME"! Many thanks
ALASKA BOUND - DONATIONS OF BOXERS, SOCKS AND RAZORS It is with a very heavy heart that I begin this message with an unhappy update. Our blue box sitting in the Narthex was probably about 1/2 - 3/4 full on Sunday October 15. Sometime during that week, it was pilfered with only a few items remaining. Regrettably this is not the first time things have gone missing; newborn pampers during the 30 Hour Famine, cleaning supplies from our UMCOR project this past summer and now our Alaska Bound donations. I am saddened to think that "someone" thinks they have to "steal" items from the church instead of just asking for help. But, we will forge ahead. Donations to our Alaska Bound project will be sent to the First City Homeless Shelter in Ketchikan, Alaska where the need is great. Outreach will assume all shipping costs. This service opportunity is available to all. We are collecting boxers sizes M - L - XL (they will be distributed to both men and women), white socks and razors. NOTE: The donation box will be in the Narthex Sunday mornings; donations made during the week may be dropped off at the church office. Thank You for your support.
THE TREES ARE COMING!!!! Sign-up opportunities for "unloading" and "sales" will be posted in Narthex. This is the 19th year that WUMC will be on the lawn selling Christmas Trees! Many hands are needed to pull this one off! Please consider giving us some time; it is a great opportunity for families/groups to get together! Proceeds are used to support many Outreach Programs; local, national and worldwide. See you on the lawn!
