In December of 2021, the JUMC Mission Committee and Ragsdale Student, Sy Lester, created The Blessing Box. This box was created to be a functional dwelling for non-perishable food items for our community; for anyone to take. Sy, was working on his Eagle Scout designation. With the assistance of his father and a friend, he built and erected a gift that will last forever!
Initiated as a community effort, members of JUMC will check the box several times throughout the week and replenish as needed. "This Blessing Box is a new undertaking for us and we know it will evolve as time goes on. It is the hope of the committee, for the entire Jamestown community to become involved with providing food for this Blessing Box." Initiated as a community effort, members of JUMC will check the box several times throughout the week and replenish as needed.
If you are interested in being a part of this mission, click the image to the left. Items for you to consider placing in the Blessing Box are any canned vegetable, fruit, soup, meat, air tight boxes/bags of pasta, rice, beans.
At this time the purpose of the Mission Committee at JUMC is to feed the hungry, and our church certainly has proved it is a church of love, caring and giving. We continue to thank you for supporting the food drives, backpack ministry, Agape Cafe, hygiene kits, and soon to be announced other opportunities to assist those less fortunate than many of us.
