Ingathering:  Each year the mission team asks our congregation to prepare school, health, sewing and layette kits for the Thanksgiving Ingathering which are delivered through UMCOR. On a table in the fireside room is the “UMCOR Kits 2017” list which explains in detail what is needed for each kit and how to assemble them. If you plan to sew your own school bag, please follow the directions for sizing exactly as written. Several school bags are available on the table to take home and fill. Completed kits are due at church by October 1st. Please contact Sharon Josten if you have questions.
