White House Ornaments - White House Ornaments are available now! You can order them by contacting the church office. They are $22 each. Please pay by cash or check with checks made out to STUMW. All proceeds go to support missions. This promotion goes until 11/15/2020.
Meals for First Responders - Buy a Tuesday night dinner for $6.00 and donate a meal for our first responders during this trying time. You can either tell them to keep the change or make an outright donation. Any amount will be great. We have already taken meals to two different fire houses. The police department is next. We will keep going until the money runs out. Your Missions Committee has already put in $300. This is one way to show our appreciation. We are encouraging you to take a few minutes to write a card of encouragement to include with our "Keep the Change" ministry for first responders. This is a great hands-on mission project for all ages. Write a card as a way to lift the spirits of oir first responders during these difficult times. Then, bring your cards on Tuesday when you pick up dinner or drop off during the week! We'll do the rest.
New Communications Form -The Comuncations committee has created a Communications Request Form, accessible through the website, that is a one-stop shop for submitting a request for announcements in newsletters, on Facebook, in the weekly bulletins and more. This allows the same information to be shared in multiple places and saves you from having to alert multiple staff and lay leaders. This form is available at : http://stthomasumc.org/resources/communications-request.html
