• 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 end 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 2021 is: Any Food Items, Paper Products and Personal Care Items.  CCS is asking for detergent for clothing and dishes, so let's help them out!  Bring in your donations by the end of the month.

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

In "Building Bridges to the Families of the Community", we need volunteers to prepare meals for the next training session on October 4th.  A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board or contact Becky Buss 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 firefighters.  The meal should be placed in aluminum foil pans and taken to the fire department building by 6:30 p.m.  The firefighters 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 is back!  We will meet next on October 5th.  Bring a dish to share and enjoy good food and fellowship.
