The Methodist Children’s Home

This year we added a new mission project – The Methodist Children’s Home.  This is a grade level competition and the children are having fun contributing extra change (or dollars) and placing them into the large jar for their grade level.  This was introduced to the children on Monday. Thank you for all of the contrubutions so far. The kids are having fun while racing to rasing money for a great cause!

Grade Level Mission Project

We are still collecting items for our missions project for each grade.  Please bring in these items by tomorrow, Thursday.  The items can be sent in with your child in the morning or dropped off in the “Nest” by the entrance to the Sanctuary at pick-up.  We are making Birthday Bags for the Gwinnett Children’s Shelter and DFACS, as well as, collecting food for The Pantry at HMUMC.
