Blessing Box – have you seen the new Blessings Box outside the church Key Bank entrance?  This box (cabinet) is meant to provide non-perishable food items and toiletries for folks with an immediate need.  Take what you need, give what you can, share the word if you know of someone who needs a little boost.  You may add items to the box at any time, if the box is full you may drop items off at the church office (Monday – Friday, 9 AM – 1 PM) to replenish when supplies are low.

Ongoing – Volunteers are sought for Mission trips to the areas of our Upper New York Conference affected by the flooding.  Please contact the church office (315-287-2440) if you can assist with this work, the secretary can put you in contact with the appropriate person.  Conference links: http://www.unyumc.org/mission/vim
