FAMILY SUMMER FUN EVENTS 

 
READ TO FEED 
 
ATTENTION MEMBERS! 
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Please sign up and sponsor our children that have enrolled by pledging a dime, a quarter, or a dollar for each book they read!  Our children have been busy all summer reading, but they need your help to meet their goals.  At the end of the summer, the children will collect their pledges, pool their money as a group, and put their heads together to decide what type of livestock they would like to buy for families in need!  Click the link below and sign up to sponsor a young reader!  Thank you!

Help us maintain two vegetable gardens to benefit the Jesus Focus Ministry Food Pantry at Bethanna. 

We need volunteers to water and pick vegetables in The GivingGarden.  Beginning June 17, we will need volunteers to tend the garden.  Everything you need is at the Church.  There is a hose to the left of the two small vegetable gardens.  Kari File and Susan Seamans will coordinate picking and delivering the vegetables to a local food pantry.  If you have any additional questions, please contact Susan Seamans at childrensministry.stjumc@gmail.com or 215-357-6998.

You can sign up to care for the garden for a day or a whole week!  Watering time is flexible . . . you can come in the morning or the evening.  Join us as we grow together in faith! 

Thank you for volunteering!
