Weekly Lenten Challenge

Lent began on February 17th! We thought that instead of GIVING UP something during the Lenten season, we could all GIVE BACK! We are planning to send a suggested weekly idea for how you can GIVE BACK to our church community.

Week Two: We realize how long it’s been since we have seen our church friends, neighbors, and family friends. Many of us have really missed that connection. For Week two, let’s pick up the phone and call some of these friends. What a  special feeling that will be to have that contact again. If you need a phone number for a church friend, call the office or Lisa and Nancy, and we will help you with that.

Week One: When you go to the grocery store this week, buy 1 or 2 extra cans of soup- or anything- and drop it off at church for the Food Cupboard.

If you have any questions, call Lisa Brotsch or Nancy Kidd

Thanks! This should be fun!

Family Promise of Ontario County

As the Outreach team, we are always looking for ways to help our neighbors, near and far. We were so thankful with your generosity to help with our UMCOR campaign in the fall. Last year around this time, we asked everyone to participate in a Lenten challenge for the VF Food Cupboard. This year we are doing something a little different.

Our church has been actively involved over the past few years with Family Promise. Everyone has been wonderful with their donations of time and items when we host our families.. even virtually. In addition to the items Family Promise needs for our turn to host, they also need items just to continue the daily running of this program.

We would like to start a Valentine’s Love Mission to help Family Promise with some of their daily needs. Talking with Lauren Lamb this week, she updated me on some items that they could use. I think, with your generosity, we can help them. For the next month, we will be collecting items. You can drop them off at church in the bin labeled in the lounge or put them on Lisa’s front porch in the bin. (6768 Aldridge Rd, Victor). We appreciate all you do to help our church family as well as our community. If you have any questions you can contact Nancy Kidd or Lisa Brotsch.

 

So here is their wish list. The top items are things they could desperately use. I’ve added a few other items from their website as well.

Large size children's or toddler's diapers - look for coupons in the newspaper and on line

Toddler Pull ups- all sizes.  They will take open packages as well

Postage stamps

Gift cards-  small denominations- $5 $10 $15. For Tops,  Aldi’s , Walmart, Wegmans - these can be left with Wendy if you do not want to leave in tub- be sure to label Valentine’s Love Mission- we will check the tub daily!

Money offerings

 

From their website: printer paper; laundry detergent; baby wipes; Bath towels and wash cloths;

 

Again thank you for your generosity!

Online Worship amidst COVID-19

During this time of COVID-19, we have the priviledge of having several videos a week uploaded to the church's YouTube page.

On Tuesdays there is a quick update/thought provoking video usually no longer than 10 minutes.

On Wednesdays there is a bible study video in which Pastor Ben goes over the week's lectionary texts with colleagues.

And on Sunday mornings we have our Online Worship video that includes: music, a children's message, scripture reading, prayer, and Pastor Ben's message.

We pray all these resources help you in your walk with God during these times. The link to our YouTube can be found at the top of the Welcome page or just click here!
