 OPPORTUNITY FOR SERVICE — McKENDREE CLOTHES CLOSET

Thank you to everyone who has helped sort and organize clothing in our clothes closet!  Your help has been greatly appreciated!

We are in need of two kinds of help —

1)  Sorting and organizing.  Donations come in every week, and need to be sorted and put on the shelves.  This work is best done when the closet is NOT open for people to come in.  This can be done morning or afternoon, Monday-Friday, for 1-2 hours.  You can come on a one-time basis, or come once a week, twice a month, whatever fits with your own personal schedule.

2)  Greeters for the closet during open hours.  Duties include smiling, greeting our guests, helping them find clothing, and giving basic information about McKendree Church.  Someone from the church staff is always available to help.  Greeters are needed for 2-hour time periods, morning or afternoon, Monday-Friday.  It is helpful to have greeters on a consistent schedule — for example, every Tuesday morning, or Wednesday afternoons twice a month — whatever would work for your personal schedule.

If you can assist with either of these tasks, please contact Ruth Baggett in the church office (mckendreeinfo@gmail.com or 615-271-2600).  I will be happy to show you the closet and talk with you about our ministry opportunity here.

We are in great need of persons to help organize clothing in our church clothes closet.  We have been gifted with a large donation of clothes, but they must be sorted, folded and organized before we can re-open the closet to the public.  If you can assist for a morning, an afternoon, an evening, a couple of hours, whatever fits your schedule – we truly need help!   Please contact Ruth Baggett in the church office if you can donate some time (mckendreeinfo@gmail.com or 615-271-2600).

UMW MEETING  Our next meeting of the McKendree United Methodist Women is Saturday, June 23 at 10am.  We will meet in the church Community Room.  Martha Barr will share her experience at the recent National Assembly of UMW.  Following her presentation, the items for the Hygiene Kits (for UMCOR) will be assembled.

For anyone who is available or has signed up to help clear the kitchen, pantry and storeroom for the kitchen renovation, we will adjourn to the Fellowship Hall to work from 12-3pm.

The Mission U will be held at St. Marks UMC in Murfreesboro.  Day classes are July 12-13, and the night classes are July 11-13.  If you are interested in attending either session, please contact Martha Barr (615-957-6081 or mlbarr315@gmail.com) or Willodene Brodrick (615-641-6858 or wbrodrick@tds.net) for a Registration form.  If you already have a registration form, please send it in this week and save $15 for early registration (by June 15th).  Please register by July 1st if you need to stay overnight in a hotel room.  There is no deadline on registration for the Mission U sessions themselves.
