We're excited to announce that the Young Adults will be collecting donations over the next few months from the congregation for health kits to send along to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).

Health kits provide basic necessities to people who have been forced to leave their homes because of human conflict or natural disaster. Health kits are also used as learning tools in personal hygiene, literacy, nutrition, and cooking classes.

For the next month, we will be asking members of the church to donate materials for the kits or to make monetary donations towards the project. On May 3rd the Young Adults will meet up after service and assemble all of the Health Kits and package them to send off to UMCOR.

Please drop off donated supplies at church on or before April 26th.  You may also give a special offering for these health kits up to the Sunday of May 3rd. Simply mark "health kits" on your offering envelope and checks and we will pick up the supplies for you!
