Ministry of the Month & The Perfect Gift
Your Outreach Committee identifies a Ministry to focus on each month. They provide information through the web, newsletter and bulletins about how you can participate. Please place your contribution (make your check out to Anoka UMC) in an envelope found in the pews, or your offering envelope and mark it for: Mujilia Fall Agricultural Project
Alternative Giving Through the Mujila Falls Agricultural Center
The perfect gift may be an “alternative” to a standard gift. One that gives the recipient the joy that you are helping them to help others, but also a gift that multiplies as it is used by someone in one of the poorest areas in the world. You can be assured that the gift will have a positive impact because of the training that is provided to the final recipient. The gift may be in honor of or in memory of someone or even a gift to yourself.
The gifts will go through the Mujila Falls, Zambia Agricultural Center supervised by our missionary Paul Webster. 100% of your gift goes straight to Mujila Falls. Nothing is deducted for administrative or other expenses.
Gift forms and gift cards to send to recipients are available by the Outreach bulletin board.
UMCA supports these organizations both financially and through volunteerism:
Bell Ringing Have you signed up to ring bells for the Salvation Army red kettle fund raising activities? There is still time. Please see the signup sheet on the bulletin board.
Toys For Joy There is a collection box for the Anoka County Toys For Joy program. Donations will be picked up in mid December.
Every little bit helps This is shown in many ways. One example is our collecting of hotel sized soaps, etc. for the Salvation Army homeless shelter; Harbor Lights. All of your donations during the last year totaled 156 pounds of the small toiletries. These small sizes work well for the guests who just stay overnight. Thank you!
