WINTER WILL BE HERE SOON!

LET’S HELP OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS STAY WARM THIS WINTER

Warm weather clothing is needed for our brothers and sisters who will be sleeping outdoors this winter in the Milwaukee Area.  Streetlife is a non-profit organization that reaches out to support the marginalized and those who are in need.  We are looking for men’s and women’s: new socks and underwear, sweat pants, hoodies, hats, mittens, scarves, and winter coats.  If you have any of these items or would like to purchase these items you can drop them off at Fifth Ave. UMC.  Rev. Amy will be taking items downtown every Wed.   A big thank you to the Fifth Ave. Knitters for their donation of hats and sleeping mats.  With God all things are possible.  Any questions please call 262-271-7575.

1ST DAY OF SCHOOL

back bus education school

God Hold My Hand
Today I was driving in my car.  I saw a mother walking walking her son to the bus.  This looked to be the child’s first bus ride to school.  It made me think.  God is our parent and walks us to the Bus every morning.  What will we learn today?  Who will we meet?  How will we share God’s love with others? 
Peace My Friends,           Rev. Amy
