This Week’s Announcements

Blanket Drive – Cold Weather is HERE!
Please search your closets for gently used blankets, jackets, sweaters, hats, socks and gloves and drop them off at Pat’s or the church office. Our volunteers will quickly distribute them among the three elementary schools we partner with Reddick, Wimauma and Ruskin, as well as, the homeless. Thank you!
 
Friendship Circle
Monday, January 8th at 6:30 PM in Rm. 19
Ladies are invited to join us for our monthly Friendship Circle meeting.  This month a short film entitled “No Ordinary Shepherd” will be featured. Thank You! To the faithful who came out in the cold and rain to dismantle our Christmas decorations.  Unfortunately, because of the weather, we could not take down the outside decorations. We will gather together sometime next week to dismantle the rest.  Watch for the date. It is a fun time to meet new people and fellowship together!
 
We Asked, You Answered!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your generous help for the Methodist Children’s Home.  We told you that we needed $2,000 to meet our goal and you provided $4,201.15. The children at the Children’s Home thank you and we thank you. There is not a more generous congregation than that of the UMCSCC. God is good! 
 
Fellowship Opportunity
Fellowship Ministry is looking for help cooking a healthy breakfast for our  fabulous Kidz on Sunday morning (once a month for about 2 hours). The menu is made up, the food is already purchased, so all we need is someone to cook!  Contact Mary Baker @ 207-356-8186 or mcbaker1951@yahoo.com.
