Look for the signs which direct you to door F on the north side of the building; West Lincoln Ave.
Coat Pantry Open on Fridays from 11 am to 2 pm Please use the West Lincoln Ave entrance (*Door F ) on the north side of our building. Please bring your own mask OR one will be given to you. People working and visiting the Coat Pantry will be required to have their temperature taken, wear masks, social distance and use hand sanitizer. We need people who are willing to make masks for the pantry. If you can help with this ministry, drop your mask donations off in the RCUMC entryway. There is a box on top of the mailbox in the church entryway marked “Mask Donations for the Coat Pantry.” Donations of new and gently used coats, boots, hats, mittens, gloves and scarves may also be dropped off in the church entryway. Thank you for your assistance with this important ministry in our community.

We are all aware that the Edenville and Sanford dams failed, and many people were evacuated due to impending flood waters. This one is close to home and for many of us, directly affects someone we know. The Michigan Conference Disaster Response Team has been working with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to address the needs. If you would like to learn more about how you can help or where you can donate visit: http://michiganumc.org/update-on-mid-michigan-flooding/ .

Ways to Help During the Covid-19 Pandemic
1. Church of the First Born is doing an excellent job feeding the people of our community, but they are struggling to have enough food. They are serving breakfast and lunch daily 10 am to 4 pm as well as dinner on Mondays from 5 pm to 7 pm. Items can be dropped off at their door at meal time.
2. Do you sew? If you do I bet you have a fabric stash. Our local hospitals are requesting help with face masks. See the church Facebook Page for the specifications for the masks needed.
3. Let us know if you see a need. With the “stay at home” order it can be hard for church leadership to know what the needs are in our community. If you see a place where we could be Christ’s hands and feet let us know. We need to be creative, resourceful and careful. Look after yourself, look after your neighbors, and pray for all.
4. Perhaps the simplest, but most important, CALL PEOPLE. Check in on everyone. Our more vulnerable people are being checked on, but this can be a lonely time for all of us. Dust off those church directories and call some people just to say hi. Knowing that people are thinking about you can be incredibly helpful.
5. Church of the Nazarene is offering “Drive Through” meals at 5:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Assistance with goods needed for those meals would be welcomed.
6. Demand at our local food pantry is high: your gifts of food or cash are gratefully received there. The Food Pantry is open every Tuesday from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm at St Philip Neri Catholic Church.
7. Mask Makers Needed--One of the changes that will most likely occur when we come back together is that it will be recommended, if not required, that we all wear masks. With this in mind we would like to have a supply available for people who come to our building who may not have access to masks. We deeply appreciate anyone who may be willing to help by sewing masks. If you need a pattern please call or email Pastor Kristen.
Monthly Group Gatherings inside our building are "on hold" until we can safely meet again.
