Community Thanksgiving Day Meal
This November we are going to focus our efforts on our Community Thanksgiving Day Meal on November 24th 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This will be our ninth year of sharing this meal with our community, and we have had a great time. I want to share with you some ways to help out this year. First, pray for us and for those who will be coming to share this meal together. Second, you can volunteer to serve on Thanksgiving Day if you can. We need workers but also people to sit down and talk with people who come. Third, if you like to bake, you can make a pie or dessert and drop it off at Memorial Hall. Fourth, if you would like to help out with the cost, you could make a donation to the Community Thanksgiving Meal. If you can help out in any way, just talk to Wilma Thomas. I am so proud of our church and this wonderful ministry we offer to our community each year.
Blessing Box Ministry
Blessing Boxes are appearing all over the United States. They are being erected by churches, businesses and individuals. A Blessing Box is an emergency standalone miniature food pantry. In pursuit of community outreach, the Hardinsburg United Methodist Church has erected a Community Blessing Box. HUMC is grateful to Mr. Larry Welch, a member of the congregation, who crafted the Blessing Box using reclaimed wood from the church’s former main entrance. For protection from the weather, the Blessing Box is located under the porch of Memorial Hall, facing the street. The box is never locked and contents are available 24/7 to anyone.
The Blessing Box is for anyone who experiences need when other resources are not available. The contents of the Blessing Box are donated by the congregation, although anyone in the community is welcomed and encouraged to donate. Non-perishable items which will withstand high and low temperatures are the best selections. The stock will vary from day to day according to use and donation. Sometimes there may be a full pantry, and sometimes not; but the hope is that there will always be something there for someone who is hungry. TAKE WHAT YOU NEED, LEAVE WHAT YOU CAN. LITTLE BECOMES MUCH IN THE MASTER’S HAND.
Soapy Second Sunday Every Month
Proverbs 11:25 A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.
Once a month, on the second Sunday, HUMC collects cleaning products for distribution through the Good Samaritan Center. This is a community mission outreach that anyone can participate in by just picking up that extra bar of soap, dish or clothes detergent, shampoo, etc. Please place your donations on the table near the Serenity Room. A hearty thanks to you all.
