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 moth- ers 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 its 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 arrivewith 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.
- MONETARY DONATIONS: Cash or checks made out to Rainbow City First United Method- ist Church are accepted. Be sure you designate that your donation goes for the UnitedMethodist Children’s Home.
