One Great Hour of Sharing

This Missions Moment is brought to you by the letter “M”. We hope Millions of people will join in the One Great Hour of Sharing this Month to Make health, emergency relief, refugee and education Ministries possible, both here and in Many other countries. Our Maine UCC and Multiple other churches support this Marvelous Mandate, which Manages as if by Magic to Multiply the Magnanimous Money donated for these Magnificent causes. Your gift could Mean so Much to a Mama in Malaysia or a Man in Machias. Mind you, this collection could not happen without Me and you, so be Mindful that April 23rd, the Sunday after Easter, is the Moment to Most generously Make your gift. Many, Many thanks! Now back to our Marvelous Minister!

Food Pantry Needs

I took our very full cart of Food Pantry goods to the food pantry on Tuesday. WOW, did we fill some shelves this month !. The dish soap and shampoo shelves look so good ! You folks cannot be thanked enough. For the next few weeks let’s do toothpaste, deodorant or paper towels. The paper products are the most difficult to keep ahead. So your help is doubly appreciated.
Thank you for any and all of the goods that you bring to help those who can use a little boost.
Donations may be dropped off in the grocery cart and will be taken to the pantry. Thank you.

Spring Church Cleanup
Our Spring Church Cleanup will take place after worship on Sunday, April 30. The cleanup will take place mainly outside. Come to church dressed in your work clothes. Please consider helping. Thank you.
