September Mission Focus
United Methodist Children’s Home
The United Methodist Children’s Home purpose is to provide a loving Christian home for children who have many needs. Some children may have been physically, emotionally, sexually abused, and/or neglected. They need a safe place to live and heal. The UnitedMethodist Children’s Home provides such a place. In addition to regular and therapeutic foster care the UMCH provides residential group homes, transitional living, family preservation programs, and group homes for young mothers and their babies.
This month we hope to help the UMCH with some of their immediate needs.
TWIN SHEET SETS: solid color or patterns, please no characters. When a child or teen goes to UMCH, whether it’s for a few nights or several years, they receive new twin sheets.
LUGGAGE: When a child or teen enters UMCH’s care, they have been known to arrive with all their belongings in a black trash bag. UMCH likes to give the children a new or gently used piece of luggage for travel and a place to keep their belongings.
FUNDS TO PUCHASE NEW SOFA/COUCH: The UMCH is collecting funds for a new couch or sofa. Make checks out to RBC First United Methodist Church and designate UMCH. Use the envelopes in the depot for cash and mark it UMCH and place in box.
