Central UMC supports almost 20 local missions and nonprofit organizations with our missions budget, but how can we, as individual church members, make a difference? To help, each month we will spotlight a ministry that we support and give you ways that you can get involved.
The Holiday Hope Chest Project is underway for the 2022 Christmas season! The Volunteer Center of Morgan County targets children from low income families in Morgan County to receive a Christmas Box. The goal this year is to collect over 1300 Holiday Hope Chests! We would love if every family in our congregation would fill a shoe box full of Christmas goodies and bring it to the Birthday Party for Jesus on Wednesday, December 7th! It is super easy to pick up an already wrapped and labeled box from the fountain area and fill it with age- appropriate goodies and return to the church on December 7th!
Please consider helping us by either 1) filling up a shoe box 2) donating wrapped shoe boxes or 3) making a monetary donation.

Thank you for helping us make Christmas a joyful time for these families!
