Twelve individuals from Central UMC spent the day at God’s Country Cooperative Parish in Newberry. Randy Hildebrant , missionary on site, organized us and set us on our tasks. We put together school backpacks, made curtains for two rooms, sorted and hung coats for coat giveaway, emptied trailer of donations, grouted tile, painted various items, built and installed ramp and crawl space cover, restocked shelves in clothing room, and played with Trigger. Grateful for the opportunity to go and serve. We will be back. Keep up the great work ya’ll.
On Saturday, October 5th, we held a Blessing of the Animals service on the lawn at the Courthouse. We had a good turnout and everyone enjoyed the service. Any donations went to benefit the Chippewa Country Animal Shelter.
