Eakin Elementary food drive

Did you know there are children who live just a few blocks away from Belmont UMC who go to bed hungry? As a parent of a third-grader at Eakin, I’ve heard the stories for myself. Sitting in the cafeteria one day, a little girl told me that she and her mom had to sleep in their car for a while when her parents split up. As a parent and member of Belmont, I am compelled to reach out to the children right here in our own neighborhood who are hungry. BUMC is hosting a food drive September 28–October 26 to stock Eakin’s food pantry. Boxes will be at the entryways of the church to accept donations of spaghetti noodles, peanut butter, tuna, Easy Mac, fruit and applesauce cups, granola bars, and canned soup. Also needed are toothpaste, laundry soap, and gently used reusable shopping bags.

Children's Sunday school collecting box tops for Red Bird Mission

A part of our faith formation is learning ways to grow closer to God through our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness.  One of our service activities for this year is collecting box tops for the Red Bird Missionary Conference.  The Red Bird Missionary Conference, located in Southeastern Kentucky, is the most comprehensive mission effort of The United Methodist Church in the United States, providing outreach and services that minister to the whole person.

Look for box tops on products you regularly use. Last year enough box tops were collected to purchase a bus!  We’ll have containers around the church to collect the box tops.  Look for the red cardinal!  Contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
