The Thanksgiving Blessing 2012, sponsored by Love INC, was a community-wide effort and a time of great service and prayer. Over 300 families received all the fixings for a Turkey dinner along with prayers for their physical and spiritual wellbeing. UMCC members were among the 153 volunteers from the Chugiak and Eagle River area to coordinate and execute the project under the guidance of Love INC. Recall how our collection efforts were encouraged by the growing tower of food in the narthex?
This season, we will again partner with friends of Love INC to nourish our neighbors. As part of Thanksgiving Blessing 2013, the United Methodist Church of Chugiak has been assigned to gather 400 cans of carrots. Another orange sculpture to build!
Consider becoming involved with our church family to help our neighbors in need. Individuals can add their cans of carrots to the tower in the narthex next Sunday. The last date to donate will be Nov. 24. If we exceed our assignment, the extra cans will go to the Chugiak/Eagle River Food Pantry. If you have questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
