We’ve had a wonderful year so far. Our missions continue to grow.  We were privileged to be able to donate children’s winter coats to Pastor Jeff Hodges in Oswego where the Methodist church provides a coat giveaway.

Our church received a letter from St. Pauly Textile stating that in 2016, our drop off shed project provided them with enough articles of clothing to clothe an estimated 1,587 people in 44 countries, including the US.  How generous our community is!
From our New to You/Schoolhouse Boutique mission, we have been able to help families that have lost everything from fire, or dire circumstances, with clothing and household items. We also provided clothing to a local nursery school and continue to work with the schools and fire departments to assist when needed.
 
We continue to be strong in our church mission to help the veterans. We donated homemade shawls, mittens, scarfs and hats at Christmas time. The UMW provides food baskets to veteran families in need at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas, working with the Schneider Foundation. The church also donated to the UMM mission of purchasing companion dogs for veterans.
 
We have been able to donate to our sister church, Warners UMC’s food pantry.
 
We appreciate all the help our community gives our church, which enables us to continue with our missions.
 
Thanks and Blessings,
Carolyn J. Johnson, President
