United Methodist Women & Missions Team

Hygiene Kits For Mission Central

 The United Methodist Women and the KUMC Mission team are collecting donations and supplies for UMCOR hygiene kits.  A team is going to Mission Central next month and would like to take supplies for Hygiene kits or a donation for hygiene kits.   The next 3 Sunday's we will be collecting donations for the supplies for these kits.  You can put your donation in the basket labelled for hygiene kits, place an offering in the model church designated for hygiene kits or make a donation through our PayPal link designated for hygiene kits  We will buy the supplies here to send with the team or  make some up here as well.  With the forest fires, flooding and hurricanes, the need for these kits has never been more vital.

Hygiene Kit Items


Our newly expanded and upgraded Food Pantry opened Monday Sept 20.  
Mondays:    10:00 AM until noon
Thursdays:  11:30 AM until 1:30 PM

If you'd like to volunteer to help please see Jean Schnirel, Donna Stierheim or Mike or Cindy Turner.

 Food Pantry Focus for October
We will be looking for 'protein' for October.  Jars of Peanut Butter (and jelly), cans of tuna or chicken, beans or other types of non-perishable protein will be especially needed. 

Upgraded KUMC Food Pantry & Mission Room
As part of an Eagle Project a Boy Scout from Troop 444 and his fellow scouts have improved our Food Pantry area in the Wesley Room.  This Life Scout has worked diligently planning, fund-raising and executing his plan with his fellow scouts over the last several months. We can now help to serve many more people in need.  Also included was shelving to contain our items that make up UMCOR kits and other Missions Projects. Take a look when you get a chance.

UMCOR & Missions Room
The new shelving and bins will hold the items necessary for our main UMCOR kits we make:  Hygiene kits, Cleaning Buckets and School Kits.
This will be put to use immediately as we begin collecting supplies for Hygiene kits and other items for our Mission Central trip this fall.

Response To the Events of January 6
Early Wednesday afternoon, January 6th, we completed the recording of today’s worship service.  A very short time later, an angry mob stormed the nation’s Capitol in Washington, D.C.  This statement is offered in response to that event.

 Our building will continue to be closed to all community groups that typically meet here. Please pray for the leadership of our faith family as decisions are made regarding the best possible procedures for opening our building safely at the appropriate time.
