MEAL DELIVERY OUTREACH
Last Wednesday, July 22
, a ministry team of 4 ladies and 3 men prepared and cooked meals for our senior ministry. They made their best effort to see that meals were delivered to those who are sheltering in place and for others who may have medical issues that might possibly make meal prepping a challenge. There were 12 drivers who delivered 95 meals. If you would like to receive or know of someone that could benefit from this meal service please contact the church office. If you would like to help this ministry team by calling people to see if they want a meal or if you want to help with delivering meals please contact Cindy at 601-924-6671 and we will be sure to inform you of the upcoming schedule. If you would like to donate to this meal ministry please make checks out to First United Methodist Clinton and put Meal Ministry in the memo line.
WEEKDAY MINISTRIES EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY
Submitted by Jamie Steadman
HOURLY CHILD CARE POSITION / JOB OPENING
Individuals will work with K through 5th grade children on a daily basis Monday through Friday starting in August. Applications which are available at the church office (Monday - Friday 8AM - Noon) will be accepted through the end of July.
CALL OUT FOR CHILD CARE WORKERS
As you may have seen, the Clinton Public School District has announced its plan to restart in-person instruction for students this August. While this is good news for thousands of parents and students, the way school is beginning presents a new challenge. For the month of August, CPSD schools will meet in a hybrid format, with students only attending in-person two days a week. For the remaining three days each week, our weekday parents will need all day childcare for their students. The plan is for this to continue only for August, after which schools will return to a fully traditional schedule.
The Weekday Ministry is asking for anyone in our congregation who is willing to take a “short-term mission trip” and become a childcare volunteer to contact the main office or our director,Jamie Steadman, with your availability.
You would join a team of others providing supervision to students from Kindergarten through 5th Grade. You don’t need any prior teaching experience; just patience, the willingness to be up on your feet a fair amount, and the health to be outside for 45 minutes at a time for recess.
We need coverage Monday -Friday from 7am to 6pm, but you don’t have to work the whole day or every day. Any time you could commit would be appreciated immensely!
For a “no commitment conversation” please email or call Ricky James at
With the start of school less than a month away we need to be prepared! So, let us know today if you’re able to help us out!
