Mission Minutes
October 2013

Bill & I feel honored to be asked to be the chair of the Missions committee. This is a very busy time of the year for all of us, including Missions. You may have already or will soon receive a donation letter for Christmas Store. You may ask yourself what is "Christmas Store"? Christmas Store is a project that St. Paul's UMC has done in collaboration with St. Thomas Lutheran Church for over 30 years. We supply 75-80 families in our local area with the basic needs for Christmas. Each family receives Christmas dinner, a warm tree item, which are hand-made lovingly during the year, for each person in the family, a hospitality bag, which has toiletry items and a religious gift, a choice from our "bookstore", and each child under the age of 18 in the family receives a toy which parents shop for in our own little Christmas toy store. Wrapping paper is supplied to make all these items look festive for Christmas morning. This is a wonderful way to start your Christmas Season. If you have any question or would like to help please call Bery Smithouser 732-899-9366 or Sue Miller 732-840-3055.


In, November we will be collecting food for Thanksgiving Baskets and to stock our pantry. The pantry's need will be placed in the circuit rider, bulletin and for those of you that have children in the Sunday School Program, each class will have a food that they are asked to bring in. We could also use help on Monday, November 25 in the morning. At this time we will be putting together our Thanksgiving baskets. This job goes much quicker when we have a lot of. If you would like to help please leave a message for Gale at the church office 732-458-2080 or call Sue. Just dropping in would be great too.

Looking into the future , in the beginning of February we will be sending a team to Haiti. We will be going to The Feed My Sheep Mission ran by the Felmy Family. There will be more information is to come regarding this trip. In the meantime, if you are interested in going or just want to learn more about this trip please call Jim. We are also going to Kentucky and those dates will be announced ASAP. The Kentucky trip will be open to all Senior High Youth Members. Please, watch for growing information on this trip.

If you have any mission suggestions or know of any needs of our community please call us. Once again we would like to thank you for the honor of being your Chair of Missions.

In Christ We Grow,
Sue & Bill
