WIDER PARISH MISSION OPPORTUNITIES: As of Sunday, October 15th:
ASYLUM SEEKER RESTTLEMENT FUND – This is a new, year-long mission account established to provide assistance to Asylum Seekers who are settling in the Auburn-Lewiston area. Our Missions Committee has chosen this initiative as the parish mission focus for September and October 2023. The needs are many, with new families arriving every week, often after walking from Brazil to the United States border. Thank you for your generous hospitality!
HIGH STREET FOOD CUPBOARD – Financial contributions are always appreciated, and food items may be deposited in the grocery cart in the Fellowship Hall. Thank you for your generosity! Egg cartons are also needed.
CITY MISSION is open with a weekly Sunday Warming/Cooling Center, 8 am to 1 pm, and Wednesday Dinner, 5-6 pm. Thank you, for your continuing support!
RECYCLABLES – Return deposit bottles and cans are collected in repository bins in the UMCA Fellowship Hall for redemption. 100% of the proceeds support Mechuwana camperships for UMCA and Calvary UMC children and youth. Thank you for your donations!
QUILTED LAP BLANKETS – blankets are created, donated and blessed before distribution to those negotiating a difficult time in their life’s journey. If you know of someone experiencing a difficult time, please take one and give it to them as a gift from the parish.
PERSONAL CARE ITEMS – We collect toiletries throughout the year for the Women’s Wisdom Center. Thank you for your contributions!
