Room in the Inn (Every Tuesday night December-March)
We are in the process of preparing to host our homeless neighbors again this year during December, January, February and March. We currently need people every Tuesday to help with set up, provide dinners, over night host and take down. You can sign up to help using the book in the back of the sanctuary or use the sign up genius linked above in the heading.
Shoes for Samaritans Feet
The youth group is supporting Samaritan‘s Feet mission work to help provide new shoes to children and youth across our area. Samaritan‘s Feethas an amazing story and history of helping provide shoes to people all over the world. A collection boxes will be located in the sanctuary, and in the pre-school area.
Turn Around Toys
Each Sunday the HLUMC Children’s Ministry will be collecting “gently” used toys to donate to “Turn Around Toys” . We will have boxes in the sanctuary for children to place their used toys that they want to donate. This will be a VERY good teaching opportunity for our children to “let go” of a toy that has brought them joy in order to bring joy to another child.
Here is a bit of information about TurnAround Toys:
Turn Around Toys mission is to reach the unreachable; to give without condition and show the love of Jesus through gently used toys, books and stuffed animals. Turn Around Toys is physically turning a toy from one child to another but its also about turning lives around as well. Toys are very significant to a child as it teaches them social, emotional, and interactive skills. We at Turn Around Toys want to help turn lives one toy at a time.
