CARPENTERSVILLE COMMUNITY MEAL is on the 3rd Saturday of every month. Join us on January 18 between 4:30 and 6:30 at Trinity Center, 1647 Ravine Lane, Carpentersville.
The NOISY OFFERING for January will go to the Red Bird Mission in southeastern Kentucky.
The Red Bird Mission, Christian School, and Clinic have been providing ministries in this region of the Appalachian Mountains since 1921. The need remains critical in this isolated, rural distressed area. Chronic poverty, lack of jobs, poor housing, and rugged mountainous terrain provide obstacles to a fuller life for the residents of this area. Thank you for continuing to support this United Methodist Mission through the January Noisy Offering.
Remember to save your labels to support Red Bird Christian School through the Labels for Education program. Eligible items include Box tops for Education, Coke Points, Tyson Points, Kellogg Points and more.
On Saturday, January 25 at 10:00 a.m. we will gather in the Fireside Room to start wrapping shoe boxes for Spirit Lake 2020. Bring any leftover Christmas wrapping, tape and shoe boxes to contribute. All are welcome to join in this mission activity.
It’s time to sign up for another year of PADS lunches. On the first Sunday of each month, the church provides bag lunches clients staying at PADS of Elgin. Sign up is to supply the ingredients, or funding for the ingredients (your choice), for the lunch-making that takes place after church. This is a great way to extend the Lord’s Table to feed others. Sheets for all twelve months are on the bulletin board outside the kitchenette. Come downstairs after worship on January 5th to help pack.
