"I AM" the Body of Christ Food Drive

The Missions Committee at JUMC, along with Pastor Greene, have developed a creative way to stock the pantry shelves of Helping Hands during the Lenten season.  Our church has overwhelmingly supported food drives during COVID and this is another way for us to show our love.


On Sunday February 21st, begin collecting food according to the chart.  During this time read the passage listed for that week every Sunday.  Pastor David will be offering sermons to accompany this passage of scripture.  It is understood that you may not be able to purchase every item on the list, but we encourage you to select one or two items each week as possible.  Do what your heart leads you to do.


Jesus invites us to follow him on His journey to the Cross.  During Lenten season we invite you to get into a posture of being in the Body of Christ in order to know more about Him.


Join us at the side parking lot on Saturday, March 27, from 11am - 1pm to drop off your collected food, no matter how much you have.  Jesus is "The Bread of Life"; "The Light of the World"; " The Good Shepherd";  "The Way, the Truth the Life";  and "The True Vine."  Come journey through Lent knowing what Jesus gave for you and me, while generously giving to others in need.


If you have questions about his mission, contact either Tricia Seymour, (336) 456-6991 or Rachel Ruth,
(336) 803-1879.

 

Baskets of Love

This will be our 14th year of offering our Baskets of Love!

This year, we’ve offered 2 opportunities to drive through to pick up a basket and receive a name

from the list of homebound members.  These baskets will be filled and beautifully decorated

and delivered to our members on the list.  This year, the baskets will be delivered by the members of the congregation sometime during Holy Week (March 28th - April 3rd).

 

"This year more than ever our homebound folks need this Basket of Love to brighten their day," explained coordinator, Phyllis Allen.  "It's been a very hard year for everyone, but think if you could not get out at all, wouldn't this brighten up your day knowing someone cares and loves you."


In the past thirteen years JUMC has overwhelmingly supported this project sponsored by Circles of Faith, Friends, Hope, Love and Peace, and we once again ask your kind consideration.  If you have any questions regarding this ministry, please contact the church office.
