A message from Jean Peterson, Missions Committee Chair:
Good morning, everyone!
Here’s what is happening in November for Missions:
Missions is continuing to collect warm winter outerwear for those in need. Men, women and children need such things as coats, jackets, sweaters, mittens, scarves, caps, and socks. Please place any donations you bring in the benches by the Women’s restroom in the Narthex. Mission will deliver these to Giving Hope for them to distribute in Denton.
The Communion Rail Offering for November will be for The Denton Community Food Center. The Center is seeing more and more people needing food, and will even have some come by who say they haven’t eaten in 3 days! Our church wants to help keep the shelves full of food for those who can’t afford to buy groceries. Thank you for helping!
The project for November is the W.S. Ryan Adopt a Child for Christmas. Soon we will receive the Christmas “Ornaments” for needy children at the school on which their wishes and needs will be listed. More details will be coming soon.
TUMC has again agreed to hold the Carter BloodCare blood drive. We are thankful so many offer to donate their blood from our church. Carter BloodCare relates that this time of year is when there is a critical need for blood. The BloodCare bus will be in our parking lot on Sunday, December 1 from at 9:00 am to 1 pm. Please look for members of the Missions Committee before every service on November 17 and 24 with our clipboard to schedule your visit to the bus!
Thank you all!
