Shawl Ministry

Shawl Ministry group, sponsored by United Methodist Women, has been meeting since January, 2006. Our mission is to minister to people in need of various kinds of support for diverse life situations. Since our beginning, members have dedicated and donated hundreds of prayer shawls, scarves, hats, and blankets to those in need of loving comfort.

All are invited who are interested in knitting, crocheting, and other handcrafts. Meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month (calendar permitting) in the church parlor from 1-3:00 p.m. For additional information, contact Mary Nahhat.

Ink Jet Cartridge and Cell Phone Recycling

This is an ongoing fundraiser, so please continue placing your empty cartridges and used cell phones (no chargers, please) in the appropriate bins in the collection center located in the coat room. Please put the empty cartridge in the original box or a Ziploc bag to keep it safe from damages and spills. Thank you, in advance, for helping us recycle those old ink cartridges and participating in this fundraising program. If you have any questions, contact Marge Youngs.

UMW Collections for Missions

Please note that we are no longer collecting tea tags, postage stamps, or Betty Crocker coupons.

The following items may be deposited in the Kitchenette in either the cupboard or drawer next to the window:

Cell phones and old ink cartridges (no toner cartridges, please) may be placed in the receptacle in the office.

UMW Collecting Items for World Medical Relief

Give it to us when you're done with it:

  1. Do you have extra medicine samples, food supplements, or eyeglasses you don't need?
  2. Has your prescription been changed and you have some of the other one left?
  3. If you're finished with crutches, wheelchair, hospital bed, or other equipment, they can be used by others.

After you remove the label, bring in your prescription bottles. World Medical Relief can use the plastic ones (usually yellow or brown) with straight edges. The medicine bottles with narrow necks (such as what vitamins or aspirin come in) should be put in your recycle bin; they can't use them.

These small items should be brought to the kitchenette, between the parlor and mechanical room. Put them in the last drawer on the right, next to the window. That is where United Methodist Women collect all the items we send on to a variety of missions. Other items collected are Campbell's labels, box tops for education, pop can tabs, redemption stamps and cents-off coupons (especially those for items that can't be purchased with food stamps; adult diapers, sanitary products, pet food, etc.).
