June Mission Offering

The PNC provides personal items such as toiletries and paper products, not covered by SNAP or WIC benefits, to anyone in need.  This vital mission of our congregation has served 214 individuals so far this year, and our shelves are always emptied. 

Throughout the month of June, donate loose change, put cash in the small brown envelopes, memo a check, or donate online under fund name: Personal Needs Closet
Remember that the Mission Offering must be clearly marked. Either write a note on your check or use the brown envelopes in the back of the pew. Just loose change in the offering plate will not go to the monthly offering.

Throughout the years our congregation has supported the local mission, The Open Door. Our Personal Needs Closet has supplied toiletries, and the UWF is delivering weekly lunches. The Open Door is a resource for those recently released from jail.  

UMW New Mission Project

UWF continues its meal mission at Open Door. We'll make sandwiches once a week for its clients. If you can help or want additional information, please call Barbara R. at 715-205-4622. Thank you, FUMC for your support!
