Weekly Top Ten – July 6

1. July Canned Fruit Drive

The Pantry Canned Fruit Drive
In the summer months we are frequently unable to keep our pantry shelves adequately full – we need your help! During the month of July, we are focusing our efforts on canned fruit. Canned fruit and fruit cups are good snacks for kids, high in Vitamin C and nutrients, and keep well on pantry shelves. Let’s come together for a common cause to end summer hunger. Let’s see if we can collect 1,000 cans of fruit in July!

2. Informational Luncheon

Informational Luncheon for the First Annual Family Mission Trip

Would you like to learn more about HMUMC’s First Annual Family Mission Trip in November? Join us for an interest meeting on Sunday, July 31 at 12:15pm to learn more about the trip, have your questions answered, and get to know other families interested in serving together. This amazing mission opportunity is for families and their children (ages 2nd grade and up) from HMUMC to grow closer to Jesus by serving families in the mountains of North Carolina! On this mission trip from November 20 – November 23, your family will have the opportunity to make a difference in another family’s life by completing various service projects. All of the families we’ll work with are located around our home base for the trip: The Hinton Retreat Center in beautiful Hayesville, NC. The cost is $175.00 per person. $100.00 deposit is required for each family. Space is limited.
