• 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 dwindled to very low levels recently. For the next few months, Missions will try a new approach to hopefully improve our contributions.  Each month a designated product will be chosen and each family will be asked to bring one of that item sometime during the month which will be brought to CCS at the beginning of the new month.  Let's work together to show God's love to our community.

Our food collection focus for April is: Condiments Ketchup, Mustard, Mayo, Pickles, etc.  Bring in your donation by the end of April.

Of course, we will take any non-perishable food item you bring.  Be watching and listening for future 2018 donations.

• 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.

Current members of BTFD and church members or familly 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 May 7th.  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 will meet next on May 8th.  Bring a dish to share and enjoy good food and fellowship.

 

 

• Church Work Day
Church Work Day

The Trustees are planning a work day for Saturday, May 12th.  Come, help clean up around our Church building inside and out.

 

• Missions Opportunity
Missions are more than financially supporting worthwhile organizations.  There is also a call to provide services to those in need on a personal level.  Missions Committee has found a need at the Elkhart County Corrections Facility that we could fill.  During visiting hours, which are on Thursday through Sunday from 4:30pm to 9:30pm, the children of families coming to visit their loved ones have little or nothing to occupy their time.  This compounds an already stressful situation.  Having people there to read to the children will benefit them and their families during their time there.

Please consider in your heart if this would be a way for you to serve the Lord.
