 Feeding His Children at Claire UMC

On May 27 the Missions’ Feeding His Children team will prepare and serve TWO meals: one in the morning at Claire UMC in the south end of Columbus, and one at 5:00 p.m. at Woodspring Hotel (formerly Value Place) at Rt. 33 and S Hamilton Road. We will need extra assistance so please check with Kathi Faulstich to see how you can help serve.

JAM Garden Seeds:

The folks at JAM (Jackson Area Ministries) were so grateful to GUMC for our packages of seeds that they wrote us a letter and Shirley Boston will share that during “Missions Moments” on May 21. Seeds were collected in March and the kind folks at Seton Parish joined in our seed collection as a ‘thank you’ for the use of space at GUMC for their sleeping bags project.

 

Liberian Scholarship Program:

As we begin our 8th year of providing scholarships to students at the Phebe Community Lutheran School in Bong County, Liberia, Africa, we invite you to be part of this amazing ministry! For $100 you can send a child to school for a year – a modest amount for us but a huge amount for folks in Liberia whose average annual income is about U S $500. Pledge forms are available on the Missions Cabinet in the parlor. David Kudel & Jeff Myers will travel to Liberia in May, 2017, to meet with school officials, collect applications, and interview students. If you wish to send a personal letter to your current Liberian students, please deposit it on the Missions Cabinet by May 15 so David & Jeff may take these, as there is no there is no mail service in Liberia.  Scholarship pledges are due by May 28; funding is due by July 1. Any questions, talk with David, Jeff or Kathi Faulstich.
