As a part of this year’s stewardship theme of Faith in Action, the Stewardship Branch is requesting your participation in two activities to show our faith in action. First, we will have a canned food drive during the month of September, which is National Hunger Awareness Month.  Second, the UMW is sponsoring a church-wide collection of school supplies for the UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) school kits.
