Missions : Communion Rail Offering for May

Are you interested in beautifying our church grounds?

The May Communion Rail Offering will be used to help bring to life our Trustees’ Plan to make the front of the church vibrant once again.  The plan is to rework and then re-establish 8 beds around the Narthex using low maintenance bedding, plants, and accents, and then expand that to other beds when funding allows.

Thank you for helping make our church inviting and attractive!

October Missions Projects


The offering for October is TUMC’S Backpack Blessings. Missions is excited to be able to start delivering breakfasts and lunches to students at W. S. Ryan who would be without these foods over the weekends. Missions is asking for your help in funding this endeavor during the month of October. We hope to start delivering food to Ryan on November 2. Thank you so much for truly helping feed these children. Food is delivered every Friday to the school, thanks to your generosity.

February Missions

From Missions Chair Jean Peterson:

The Communion Rail Offering for February 2 is for Our Daily Bread, which serves the homeless and at-risk in Denton. They will use our offering to provide breakfasts and lunches Monday – Saturday, give passes for showers and bus/train service, provide laundry vouchers, and help with job placement, just to name a few of their services. Our Daily Bread relies on donations to be able to assist others. Our church has helped support Our Daily Bread for many years.



The Missions‘ project for February is to donate jars of peanut butter to the Denton Community Food Center. Every family who comes to the Food Center is offered a jar of peanut butter, so peanut butter is constantly being sent home with the needy. Please help our church supply an abundant amount of this needed food!


The Food Center is moving to a new and larger building February 3 on Loop 288 in Denton. They are expecting more clients and, therefore, hope to obtain more volunteers to serve, since the Food Center is completely manned by volunteers. The Center is open every weekday from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.

Several members of TUMC already volunteer there, and we hope more will join! Please call the Food Center at 940-382-0807 to find out more information, or to schedule a training.




Every Thursday evening, a group of volunteers pack bags for our Backpack Blessings recipients. This is a recent picture of the breakfasts and lunches our church gave to children at W.S. Ryan Elementary for a 3 day weekend. We can always use monetary donations to continue this endeavor!

Please take a minute to watch this presentation about Backpack Blessings, put together by Lisa Saladin:

Mark your envelope or check “Backpack Blessings” to donate to this worthy cause!
