WFUMC MISSIONS NEWS


August 2017


“Don’t just go to church…be the church.”.

“Meat for Missions” is the theme this month for donations to our local Food Pantry. Any canned meat is needed (such as tuna, chicken, stew, etc.) as well as monetary donations to buy fresh meat. If you’d like to contribute money, please make your check out to Winder First UMC, and cash is fine, too; just please mark the offering envelope as “Food Pantry Meat”.


PLEASE PLACE DONATIONS IN THE BINS LOCATED IN THE FELLOWSHIP HALL OR IN THE HALLWAY LEADING FROM THE SANCTUARY TO THE NURSERY IN THE MAIN BUILDING.

  


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR FOOD PANTRY

& CHURCH OF THE MONTH


Many volunteers are needed to help with Church of the Month responsibilities this month. Just a few hours of your time can make a tremendous difference in the lives of folks in our community. Sign-up sheets and schedules are located in the church office.


The Food Pantry here in Winder operates year-round and serves many, many hungry families in this community. Our church is responsible for staffing it every weekday afternoon in August from 5:30-6:00 to pack food boxes for clients. We need 3-4 folks daily.
