AUGUST Communion Offering
One quarter of our August gifts will go to provide Adult Hygiene Kits for use in transitional shelters for migrants along the US border with Mexico as a part of UMCOR work for us. 46,128 of these kits have already been distributed. Our children’s VBS offering will go for these kits also. These kits contain hand towel, washcloth, comb, nail clipper, bar soap, adult tooth brush, 10 adhesive bandages, kitchen gloves, gallon re-useable plastic bag, tooth paste, and provides $2 for the cost of shipping. They will be assembled at an UMCOR Depot with the help of volunteers and shipped.
Three quarters of the offering will go to aid families through UMCOR’s Global Migration outreach. The purpose is to create welcoming community with low or no cost legal service, education and advocacy among migrants. This is a church-based ministry with ecumenical partners.
