• 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 January is: "Soup & Crackers".  Bring in your donation by the end of the month.

Of course, we will take any non-perishable food item you bring.  Be watching and listening for the February 2020 donations.

In "Building Bridges to the Families of the Community", we need volunteers to prepare meals for the next training session on February 3rd.  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.
