The Year to Serve – July

This month’s theme for July is Christmas in July.  If you haven’t been able to serve yet this year, now is the time to start.  Whether you only have time to make a financial donation, or you have time to shop for toys for children or pack a Christmas Shoebox, this is the month to get plugged in.  As we focus on monthly themes, every Monday a new weekly mission opportunity will be posted on Social media or will be in the weekly Notes on Thursday.

We have a ministry at VHUMC called Christmas-All Year Fund.  This fund helps our families in Vestavia all year round.  Financial donations help to pay utility bills, provide necessary food to Vestavia families or supply basic needs, this fund supports all of this.   Please consider this week making a financial contribution to the Christmas All Year Fund.

Shop and provide toys for our Thrive Student Ministry 12 Stops of Christmas Breakfast…shop early for those special toys.  All donations can be brought to the main church office or missions office the month of July.  Toys will be distributed at our annual breakfast in December.

This month is when all the school supplies are on sale for great prices.  Shop and donate assorted school supplies to the missions office to be shared with our mission partners.

Pick up your Christmas shoebox and fill it with the requested needed items to be shipped to our UMC missionaries in another country.  Shoeboxes and coloring books provided and you fill the rest.  Donations to be returned to the missions office no later than August 8.
