A gentle reminder that Outreach is an unfunded mission. We rely on fund raisers, donations and grants to do our work in the community. A few weeks ago we did our first big in community mission. It was a lot of work and many hands made it possible. We replaced some needed furniture, many thanks to the O'Hara's, outside steps were removed (thanks to Bob Hammond) and new ones built (thanks Chuck O'Hara) Broken windows were replaced and a lot of cleaning went on. Many of our Church men worked on the yard and many women worked inside. I think we were all surprised at what we could accomplish for an elderly widow. I could feel Jesus smiling.
Please put Caroling on your calendar for Sunday, December 20th. Please meet at Church at 2 PM. We will visit the elderly and sick. Pot Luck supper to follow at the O'Hara's.
Always in His service, Bev Charest and Chuck

Meals On WheelsMUMC delivering Meals on Wheels has started. We deliver Thursdays every week. If you would like to help, please contact Bev Charest or Chuck O'Hara. We have some snazzy magnetic signs for cars, saying who we are.
Help NeededMany things are happening at MUMC and I hope you will join in. One of the most important activities is not new but needs your support. Fellowship hour following 10AM service is a great way to catch up and share with the Church community. It’s not necessary to provide a buffet but coffee, tea, cheese and crackers, quick breads, doughnut holes, etc. are all a big success. Coffee is always made so it’s a little set up and clean up. The sign-up sheet is right by the window of the small kitchen.
Please sign up, if you need more information, I’d be glad to help. Bev Charest 476-2369
