If you are interested in an international mission trip or any other local missions, please contact Pastor Susan.
Mission giving in our community and beyond our local church is important to us.
We provide financial help to local organizations throughout the year.
Ladies Craft Nite
The Evangelism Committee is holding a Ladies Craft Nite on Saturday, November 7th at 6 pm in the Fellowship Hall, masked and social distanced. We will make a Thanksgiving craft. In spite of a pandemic, we can still do something fun! Come and join us!
Please call Linda a the church or Donna Kessler by Nov. 4th if you can come. We need a count to buy supplies. We will not be providing snacks because of the virus but you can bring your own snacks, but no sharing. Looking forward to a fun evening!
Hope to see you there!
Breakfast Ministry Update
The Breakfast Ministry is moving to the Community Care Building at 1818 Cleveland Avenue. We have moved about 80% of our property to the Community Care Center and will take the rest of our supplies after we get our refrigerators and one freezer moved by Ashby movers. We are finishing up the room, new wallboard, and electrical outlets, where the refrigerators will go. John Walter and I went to the Community Care board meeting and received the okay to bring on the Ministry. They are working on getting new keys for the church’s coordinators. They have gotten a grant to repair the dining area floor, new air conditioning, and to redo two bathrooms. The project is estimated to be complete by the end of the year. We will be discussing preparing “to go” breakfast plates. ~ Jack Hinterser
We will be hosting a blood drive on January 4, 2021 from 2-7 pm. Please call 800-Red Cross to sign up or you go on-line. The drive is listed under NameokiUMC. The Red Cross is bringing their bus to limit access to the church. A few volunteers are needed to be at the church from 2-7 so the Red Cross staff have access to the bathroom. If you can help during part of the time please let me know. There is a Red Cross donor site in Fairview Heights if you’d like to give blood before then. 10886 Lincoln Trail, aka Highway 50. If you get off 64 turn right and take a right on Lincoln Trail. Call 1-800-Red Cross to schedule an appointment. Thank you for caring and sharing. ~ Deb Bivens
Hope Isn’t Cancelled – Parkinson’s Fundraiser
I don’t know about you but 2020 has been a very challenging year. I wasn’t sure what to do about the annual Zero Mile Fun Run to help with the Parkinson Foundation research for a cure, but then I saw “Hope Isn’t Cancelled.” That was
when I knew we could have a virtual run. Parkinson disease is still here even if there is a COVID virus. It is a daily challenge for me and many others.
On October 17 we will be at the church and you can drive by and receive your shirt, bottle of water and Bobby’s frozen custard. You have always been very generous in your support and I am truly thankful.
This year will be different, but I know it will be successful. See you on October 17. Stay safe and stay healthy. Together we can make a difference! HOPE ISN’T CANCELLED!!
