Mitten Tree for Board of Child Care started Sunday, November 21 and will be up through Sunday, December 12th. We will collect mittens/gloves, hats, scarves, socks and underwear for kids aged 5 through 21. A majority of the children are teenagers, so larger sizes are appreciated.
Family Advent Project - Our annual Family Advent celebration will be December 5 during the Sunday School hour in the Fellowship Hall. Please plan to join us to do a group activity and then split into family groups to work on your crafts. The craft activities will be prepared in advance, so each child will receive a bagged craft to assemble together with their family.
2021 Advent Devotional - Ward's Chapel UMC prepared a 2021 Advent devotional this year. This booklet for meditation during Advent is motivated by our church members, they shared their real stories and testimonies. We hope that you have a precious moment of meditation during this Advent season with the witness of our good saints.
There are copies available at the church for pick up either on Sundays or during office hours. The cost is $3.99. You may put payment in the offering plate, either in cash with a note indicating payment for Advent books or with a check made out to Ward’s Chapel UMC, with Advent book on the memo line. There’s also an envelope near the books in the narthex. Extra donations are welcome to cover the cost of providing books to the preschool families.
Girls' T-shirt Collection - A box will be in the Narthex year-round for gently used or new girls' short and long-sleeved t-shirts, size 4 through 10/12. Our local contact for Operation Christmas Child makes dresses from the t-shirts and donates them to the Westminster mission and women's shelter.
