Living Our Faith

“Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.” Isaiah 58:10

 

In what ways can you let your light shine? Do you have an elderly neighbor who needs help raking leaves? A sick friend you could prepare food for? Can you participate in feeding the homeless, or working at the Oregon Food Pantry? Would you like to be part of the Connections Team or contribute to Wednesday Night Supper? What is your passion? There are so many ways we can do God’s work. If you need help connecting with a ministry, please talk to me at your convenience. I can be found in the office Monday through Thursday, or you can send me an email at ksmith@peoplesumc.org.

 

Do you have a passion for a ministry that you would like to see church members become involved in? Please share your thoughts with me.

 

The Oregon Food Pantry Needs Volunteers!

With the move to the new building, there is a need for many volunteers. The move date has not been established yet, as it depends on the finishing of the building. Right now, it looks like it will be around the end of October. On moving day, there will be a need for trucks and strong bodies. Most of what will be moved is food. The only fixtures might be some shelving units.

 

There is a need for people to help put together the new shelving at the Pantry. On October 22nd, from 1-3 p.m., volunteers are needed to help with the planting of items donated by Winterland Nursery. Bring gardening tools with you. The Pantry is also in need of a Donation Team of 6-8 people for large food drives. This would include date checking all food and separating by category.

 

If you can assist with any of these activities, please contact me as soon as possible at ksmith@peoplesumc.org. I need to get back to the Pantry Operations Board with the numbers of volunteers.

 

Volunteer: Oregon Churches Welcome Homeless Families

The homeless families with children who are part of the Road Home's Interfaith Hospitality Program (IHN) will be our guests in Oregon the week of October 15th - 22nd. This is an opportunity for you to live out your faith as you help support their time in our community. 

The volunteer opportunities include helping to unload belongings, preparing and/or serving the Wednesday evening or Thursday morning meal, playing with the children on Wednesday evening, acting as one of the overnight hosts on Wednesday night, providing extra transportation during the week if needed, and helping to put supplies back in storage at St. John's Lutheran Church on the 22nd. 

 

When appropriate, new volunteers are paired with experienced ones.  Please consider being a part of this important ministry. Contact Peg Schmidt @ 835-3049, Steve Staton @ 219-0792, Anne Staton @ 335-3249, for more information or to volunteer.
