What a joy it has been to see the contributions to our Food Pantry! During the month of October, we are asking for donations of bottles of salad dressing. You may leave your donation in the hamper next to the front door of the church. Thank you for all of your gifts!
2020 Crossroads CROP Hunger Walk Set for Sunday, October 4
Greetings to all past and future participants. 2020 has been an unprecedented year to say the least. In consideration of the restrictions imposed by the coronavirus, the CROP Walk planning team has had to make some changes.
The location for the walk has changed to the Reed City Depot at 200 North Chestnut Street; we will be set up outside at the picnic tables. Walkers may sign in and walk on the Rails to Trails between Roth Street to the East and 220th to the West. We will not be serving any food or drinks to help encourage physical distancing. However, there will be a table of T-shirts from past walks that will be available for anyone who wants one. For those who would rather walk at a time and location of their choosing, that is acceptable. If you want to be creative and do some other activity, that is encouraged as well. Please be sure to have all funds turned in by October 4, the day of the walk.
The planning team has set up a Facebook page for the Crossroads CROP Hunger Walk, and there is also a web site: https: We will try to have the Facebook page connection on the website. I encourage you to take pictures as you walk and share them on the Crossroads Facebook page.
Timothy Locker has volunteered to be the Team Captain for Reed City United Methodist Church. His phone number is 231-832-3145 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact him to get your collection envelope and informational material.
This is a very important time for us to be generous in sharing what we have with those who do not have. Please pray for our world and our community. Remember, 25% of all donations stay in our community to help our local food pantry.
The September/October edition of Upper Room Devotional Booklets (both regular and large print) are in baskets at both the front and back entryways of the church. You may pick them up at your convenience.
