Mission Opportunities

The Memorial UMC Mission Committee is partnering with Mid-Peninsula School teachers to engage our congregation in supporting local education for the 2021-22 school year. To get started, you can help students and teachers in the elementary classes by donating suggested supplies. Their Great Start Readiness Program also needs a wide range of items.

 

Elementary Classroom Supplies: pencils, pencil top erasers, erasers, crayons, colored pencils, dry erase markers, dry erase boards, washable markers, highlighter markers, notebooks, folders, rulers, glue sticks, white glue, blunt scissors, hand sanitizer, tissues, disinfecting wipes.

Hope at the Inn 

Memorial UMC will be the first church to host the homeless shelter this year.  Volunteers are needed Nov. 7 - 13 to bring food, wash laundry, set-up/clean-up, and staff the 3 nightly shifts:  5:30pm, 10:30pm, and 3am.

Memorial's Venison Project will begin in October and run through the end of November.  This project helps hunters who do not want the venison to donate the meat to local food pantries at no cost to the hunter.  We need a coordinator for this short-term project.
