Birthing Kits for UMCOR Next Sunday (August 24) at Noon we will start putting together Birthing Kits for the United Methodist Committee on Relief. These kits will provide a safe delivery for mothers and their babies. These are especially necessary in refugee camps and primitive conditions. Stay after church and join the fun of working together. . . and help save precious lives. We have supplies to make the kits. We just need hands to assemble them.
First Fruits Next Sunday, (August 24) Please bring fresh produce, either from your garden or from area vendors, to share with people who do not have access to the wonderful bounty of New Jersey's fields and gardens. These will be delivered to CUMAC in Paterson and given to families who will be greatly blessed by your generosity. CUMAC (Center of United Methodist Aid to the Community) has been ministering to people in Paterson for over 40 years. You help them make a difference in the lives of others!
Health Kits The United Methodist Women invite you to join them in providing Health Kits to people in emergency situations. They will be assembling the kits at their meeting on September 8. Especially needed items are Hand Towels that are 15" x 25" to 17"x 27" (no kitchen, cleaning, or microfiber towels, please) and Washcloths.
