Family Promise Update
FAMILY PROMISE UPDATE:
Our Church has responded enthusiastically to help families in need. Here are five ways you can be involved:
RUMC Upcoming Host weeks: April 5-12 (spring break), Sept. 6-13, Dec. 20-17 (Christmas Week)
1. We would like to plan the vacation weeks well in advance and especially provide some activities to help make Christmas a special and joyous time for the families! If you have ideas of ways to make Christmas special please contact Pastor Melissa or Marsha. Check your calendars and see where you can help now and let Marsha (826-2080) or Pastor Melissa (220-9738) know.
2. Become an Office Angel/Helper at the Day Center, contact Ashley at 268-0373
Bed Race Fundraiser March 21, help with the RUMC Race Team or come out and cheer them on! It was a fun time last year and promises to be bigger and better in 2015!
4. Get your taxes done and help Family Promise at the same time! FP gets $20 for each client sent to H & R Block.
Contact the Family Promise office at 268-0373 for more information.
5. RUMC needs a gently used recliner chair for the volunteer room. If you have one you would like to donate, please contact the church office.
