Martha's Ministry reminds you that we can use soups, casseroles, breads, desserts that can be frozen to give to single people and families. Please put these items in the Parlor refrigerator and tell Jean Schnirel or Bonnie LeValley it is there.

Our Food Self:

Church food donations have been lower than in the past. Food donations are delivered every Monday morning. Our food donation day is the first Monday of the month. Food may be brought in any day and placed in the Food Collection Box in the Wesley Room, opposite the Church Office. Thank you for continued support, it is greatly appreciated.


Remember the lyrics - “Love isn’t love until it is given away”? That’s what Martha’s Ministry is all about. The food given in the name of Martha’s Ministry shows our love and caring. You can donate soup, frozen vegetables, casseroles, breads, desserts any part of a meal. Put your donation in the refrigerator or freezer in the Parlor kitchen. Please label the contents. We will put the meals together and deliver them. Remember “Nothing says lovin’ like something from the oven”! Bonnie LeValley and Jean Schnirel

The Christmas alternative to poinsettias will be Church World Service, ‘BLANKETS’.

Blankets are only the beginning of emergency response. When a disaster strikes shelter, food and safe water are needed and also "tools of hope" in the form of seeds ,tools and wells. As a congregation we can make a world of difference for people in need in our own country and in other parts of the world.

Oh! The power of prayer! Thanks dear friends for getting me through my physical upsets

The United Methodists of North Katanga in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is the fastest growing Annual Conference in our connection. For over ten years our Western NY Conference has had a relationship with the North Katanga Conference. One of their current projects is the Lupandillo Nursing School in Katanga. As a congregation, we are giving $500.00 to provide nursing scholarships. This comes from the profit made on the sale of SERRV items. Your support of the SERRV ministry has made this possible.

Thank You!
