  Kid's Corner: Children to Pack 
Flood Buckets for UMCOR 
Sunday, September 23

Please join the Children's Ministry Department on Sunday, September 23 at 10:30 as we pack UMCOR flood buckets for Hurricane Florence relief in the wake of this historic, terrible storm. We'll be in rooms 112/114 downstairs.

Even if you can't help to pack at that time, please check the list below and let us know if you can contribute items to this important effort. We will be purchasing materials to pack 2 to 3 buckets from our children's ministry funds. It would be wonderful if we could assemble 5 to 10 buckets to deliver to UMCOR. 

A container for donations will be near the Fellowship Hall.

Please hold everyone in prayer who will be in harm's way at the end of this week. 

See you Sunday, 
Children's Director
