• Loose Coin Offering
Hands with Coins

Our September collection will go to Bashor Children’s Home. Bashor Children’s Home is a child welfare agency affiliated with the United Methodist Church. They provide help for troubled children and their families through residential care, day treatment/ alternative education, foster care, and many other services. Bashor has become a regional provider for services over the last 95 years and works with over 150 children daily from 22 counties and 3 different states.  Kids in Elkhart County need a lot of help.

(Donations can also be sent directly to the church office.  Be sure to designate Bashor Children's Home as the recipient.)

• Mission for Church Community Service
It's been a long standing tradition at JUMC to collect non-perishable food for Church Community Services on the first Sunday of each month.  Collections have been dwindling to very low levels recently.  For the unforseen future, Missions is trying to improve our contributions by designating specific products that will be chosen monthly and collected throughout the month.  At the of the month, those items will be delivered to CCS and a new set of products chosen.  Let's work together to show God's love to our community.

Our food collection focus for September is: Paper Products and Personal Care Items.  Bring in your donation by the end of the month.

• Feed The Firemen Project
FiremanIn Building Bridges to the Community, Jamestown UMC is sponsoring the Feed the Firemen project.  This project involves preparing a meal for the Baugo Township Fire Department on the first Monday of each month.

What is a Volunteer Fireman? Click Here



Current members of BTFD and church members or family of a church member who are serving or have served on the department. Click Here

In "Building Bridges to the Families of the Community", we need volunteers to prepare meals for the next training session on October 5th.  A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board or contact Deb Beehler to volunteer.
This is a wonderful opportunity to provide a service to the firefighters who put their lives on the line to serve the families of Baugo Township.  The Baugo Township Fire Department is definitely a "Family" in our community.

Volunteers should prepare dishes for approximately 15 firemen.  The meal should be placed in aluminum foil pans and taken to the fire department building by 6:30 p.m.  The firemen will be involved in a training program and will eat in stages.  Using throw-away pans assures that dishes will not be lost or require pick up.  The meal should consist of meat, vegetable, salad or potato and a dessert.

• Senior Luncheon
Senior Luncheon with Bowl of Soup

Senior Luncheon will meet next on October 6th.  Bring a dish to share and enjoy good food and fellowship.
