Are you looking for a project to do while you’re sheltered at home? Do you like to sew or know someone who does?
The MD Anderson Cooper Cancer Center in Camden wants to conserve N95 and surgical masks for the Operating Room staff by giving fabric masks to the other people on staff. Their goal is 4,000 fabric masks. They have about 150 right now.
Our church is calling the effort “Project Face Mask” and you can join in. Instructions for making the masks may be found at the link below. Please read them over and watch the video. It gives you two easy ways to make a mask.
Every Thursday at 3:00 until we finish! (We read 2 chapters per week) Anyone is welcome to join - even if we're in the middle of the study. Contact the Church Office by Phone or Email to sign up
We're praying via Zoom every Tuesday at 9 AM using a simple process.
1) We share highs and lows.
2) We read a scripture passage three times, asking the first time "what stood out to you and why? The second time, "What does the passage have to say to us today?" And finally "How does the verse connect with our highs and lows?"
3) We pray.
4) We bless each other.
Please call or email the church office, tell us you want to join the Prayer Group, and we will send you the Zoom link.
First UMC will be "hosting" our IHN guests a bit differently over April 26-May 2, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Interfaith Hospitality Network has housed families in a hotel, rather than at our church. Our congregation only needs to provide 7 dinners over IHN week. We will prepare meals for 2 families: a mother and two children (ages 10 & 6), and a mother and one child (age 7).
If you cannot help with meals at this time, then you might like to make a donation to help IHN with the families' housing costs. Please mail a check to FUMC (make it clear that the money will go to IHN).
Please click HERE to view FUMC's online sign-up sheet.
NOTE: IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED AN EMAIL ABOUT IHN WEEK, PLEASE CONTACT THE CHURCH OFFICE, GIVE US YOUR EMAIL, AND WE WILL ADD YOU TO OUR EMAIL LIST OF VOLUNTEERS. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SIGN UP THEN.
