ALBANY UNITED METHODIST SOCIETY CHRISTMAS GIFT STORE! You can make this a special Christmas for some of our neighbors in West Hill by donating to the Christmas gift drive. We need toys to provide children through age 12, gift certificates in $20 denominations to area stores for ages 13-16 and small adult gifts for children to give their parents/ caregivers. Bring your gifts to church by December 15 and we’ll deliver them to AUMS. Volunteers are also needed to help with distribution on December 17th and 18th. Contact AUMS at 432-0818 to volunteer and for details.
GLOVES FOR BREAKFAST GUESTS - We’re collecting men’s gloves, sizes Large and extra Large to be distributed to some of our guests at the FOCUS breakfast program. Help keep a neighbor warm. Bring extra gloves to Church this Sunday.
FOCUS FOOD PANTRY SUNDAY IS THIS WEEK -
- This Sunday, you are encouraged to bring donations of SHAMPOO or CAKE MIX. Cake mixes will go into food pantry holiday bags for families so they have a little treat at Christmas. Let’s not only make, but break our monthly goal of 100 items. You can bring either of these items this Sunday or next.
The nominations committee is looking for more candidates to serve on church commitees.
Areas that need support are:
