START SAVING YOUR TREASURES FOR THE RUMMAGE SALE!
Clean out your closets and help support our youth and their adult chaperones going to Appalachia this June. Our mission team will be traveling to Kentucky to do home repairs with Appalachia Service Project (ASP). You can bring your items to the fellowship hall beginning Sunday, March 4th after 2:00p. This gives our team a little time to get set up for your donation. PLEASE NOTE – we ask that you NOT bring any items to the church before this date because we have no extra storage space. The sale will be held Thursday, March 8th (5-8pm); Friday, March 9th (8a -12p and 3-8p); and Saturday, March 10th (the $1 bag sale and 1/2 price large items) from 8-11a. If you can carry it in the door we will try to sell it! Please keep in mind this means no large furniture. Also note: this year we can no longer accept screen electronics (TV's, computer items, VCR's, etc.). The past few years our volunteers have had to pay out of pocket to recycle these items. EVERYONE is welcome to help sort, price and sell. Come join the Fun!
CHURCH & SOCIETY TEAM SEEKING NEW MEMBERS
Wesley UMC’s Church & Society Team is looking for a few new members to help them carry out their mission in Charleston and the surrounding area. The team oversees a budget that supports local entities such as Dial-a-Ride, HOPE of East Central IL, SACIS, CASA and PADS just to name a few. They have also impacted the lives of Wesley folks by offering Helping Hands work days twice a year. For Change the World weekend in May of 2017, Church & Society arranged for groups of Wesley volunteers to package rice and beans for local food pantries, serve lunch at PADS, sent a team to visit our homebound, had a “spruce up the church grounds” project for kids and their parents, and MORE! As you can see, the scope of projects our C & S team oversees – both monetary and hands on – are so important in the life of Wesley UMC, as well as the Charleston community. If you are interested in helping with Wesley’s Church & Society Team, please speak with or email Rev. Bob Swickard, or Pastor Janice Kahl. We hope you will prayerfully consider being part of this vital and important ministry.
