Items Needed to Support HOPE Auction for MUMC

Silent and live auctions will be held at the Moultonborough Lions Club on Saturday, November 5, 2016 beginning at 6:00 p.m. to benefit the Moultonborough United Methodist Church (MUMC). Donated items needed include gift certificates, new merchandise, handmade crafts, art work, used furniture or household items in very good to excellent condition, antiques, and any other items that are valuable enough to be included in a silent or live auction. There will not be a flea market associated with the auction and we cannot accept used mattresses, appliances (small or large), computer or stereo equipment, exercise equipment or televisions. Church members are encouraged to be creative by donating services (e.g. cleaning time, landscaping hours and baked goods), dinner for 2 or 4 at their home, boat rides or motorcycle rides, or any other type of exciting recreational items. Please call Kate and Mike Lancor at home (476-8409) or on Mike’s cell (204-8409) if you have items to donate. With advance notice, arrangements can be made to pick up donated items. The Mission of HOPE Auctions is to: Use our God given talents to make the world a better place for others.

New Position

As you've probably heard, we are transitioning from having a Youth Minister to a newly created Family Outreach Coordinator. Shawn Haskins has faithfully served as our Youth Minister for several years. We all recognize that we want more youth and children in our church. They bring energy. They are our future. After discussions with Shawn, SPRC designed the new Family Outreach position. In addition to youth, the new staff member will coordinate activities designed to draw families to our church -- VBS, Pumpkin Patch, ice skating and fishing derby at the pond, mission trips, and other programs. Shawn was asked if he wanted to work in this newly designed position. He decided to focus on his work at MA and his family and will resign as of December 31st. We are seeking applicants for this new position. It is 10-12 flexible hours per week. I will work closely with our new coordinator. If you are interested, or know someone who is, please see Pastor Sharon.

Shopping Card News

The Holiday Gift Card ordering season has begun. Please place your order as early as  possible so your friends and family won’t be disappointed and can purchase exactly what they want. Orders should be placed by December 11th to insure delivery in time for  Christmas.
Want to help those in need for the holidays? Outreach will accept shopping cards from local grocery stores to supplement their Thanksgiving baskets. If you purchase a shopping card to give to Bev Charest, it can only be claimed as an In-Kind donation on you tax form. If you desire a record of your giving on your church donation report, please follow this procedure:
Use a pew or blank envelope with name, address, purpose of donation (Outreach-  Thanksgiving), and $ amount. Write check to MUMC with Outreach-gift card for Thanksgiving on the memo line. Place the envelope in the plate with your Sunday offering so the counters can record your donation and the financial secretary will include it on your giving record.

The fall outdoor clean up is scheduled for November 12, 9:00am to noon. Help is needed to rake leaves, cut brush, cut and trim trees. Bring your rakes, leaf blowers, chain saws and clippers. Trailers are also needed. Coffee and donuts will be provided.
