Missions Focus - August


         Rise Against Hunger

               Our church will again participate in the RISE AGAINST HUNGER program.  This exciting event will be Saturday, September 22nd from 9:00 AM-Noon at the Leechburg UMC.  We are looking for about 20 assembly line volunteers and so far we have 8 persons.  (FYI - Children aged 8 may attend if accompanied by an adult).  Call Janet at 724-543-5855 to sign up.  A different way to participate would be to contribute financially.  So far we have a little over $700 toward our goal of $1100.  Is this a way in which you could help?   All church projects and volunteers need prayer, so please consider keeping this event on your prayer list.


          Hygiene kits for UMCOR are in great need now as flooding and fires have so powerfully effected so many in our country.  Instead of supplying the entire kits, we will collect certain items for kits.  Please consider donating any of the following:       Bandaids (3/4" x 3")

                              1 Gallon size re-sealable plastic bags

                              Adult toothbrushes

                              Wash Cloths

                              Hand Towels (not kitchen, cleaning or microfiber towels)
