FUMC Missions


January Mission Offering

One of the ministries of our church and one of the ways that we minister in partnership with others, is by serving a free meal open to all in the Wausau community on Sunday afternoons at the First Presbyterian Church. Different churches sponsor meals through the year. We always have the 5th Sundays, when there is one, which will be March 31, 2019.

This month let’s support this service to our neighbors with both our time and our financial contributions through the monthly mission offering. To designate money for this ministry, either write “Community Meals” on a check memo line or use the small brown
envelope in the pew.
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.
 

 

Campbell’s Labels
and
Milk Moola Caps

 
Many of us have been saving labels from Campbell’s cans to be redeemed by Northcott Neighborhood House in Milwaukee. This month, Campbell’s is discontinuing this program, so we will no longer be collecting those at the church.
 
Also, please bring in any “Milk Moola” caps from milk purchased at Kwik Trip stores as soon as possible. The caps will be taken to Mission u in Wisconsin Rapids July 24th.

Mission Giving Without Pain

UMW collects Kwik Trip bottle caps, pull tabs and “box tops for education” for missions. Kwik Trip caps go to Harbor House, a UWM sponsored women’s shelter in Superior, Wisconsin. Box tops for Education are sent to Redbird Mission in Kentucky. And pull tabs are sent to Ronald MacDonald House.

For your convenience there are collection baskets in the parlor. And remember, aluminum cans are collected for our own mission trip.

A reminder that on the first Sunday of each quarter we have Communion Kits prepared for those who do the visitations and communion deliveries. We put them out in the Chapel and in the Wesleyan Room that day. We would like to see the kits delivered as soon as possible.
