This summer we will be collecting school supplies for the children served

Methodist Aid to the Community (CUMAC). This year we invite you and
your family or friends to team up, purchase a new backpack, grab a
school supply list from the display in the Narthex and go shopping. The
result will be backpacks loaded with great age-appropriate supplies to
help children of all ages get off to a strong start in September. The lists
vary by age and are categorized as Pre-K & K, 1st - 4th, 5th - 8th and High School.
