This Week@FUMC Allen
November 7 2021
Greetings!

Part of our tradition at First United Methodist Church of Allen is to serve our neighbors over the holidays.

We kick off our 2021 Holiday Challenge THIS SUNDAY, November 7, with two family-friendly hands-on opportunities: we will stuff Stockings for Soldiers and assemble nutritious meals with Kids Against Hunger.

All ages are welcome to join us in the gym, but pre-registration is requested as we have many outside community groups participating in this packaging event.

If you cannot be with us this Sunday, we have many more ways for you to serve during the 2021 holiday season. Here are three other projects currently underway:

  • Donate food through November 12 for the ACO Holiday Food Drive. You can drop off items at the church or use the ACO wish list to send items directly to ACO.
  • Sign up now to help with the Boyd Elementary School Thanksgiving Feast on November 16. We need lots of help at the school on that day as well as donations of rolls and gravy, which we'll be collecting at the church on Sunday, November 14.
  • Donate items for the Boyd Elementary Holiday Shop through November 17. Your donations provide students an opportunity to shop for gifts for their parents and/or guardians this holiday season.

We have a few more projects kicking off later in the month. Stay turned for more details to come, but right now, you can click on the individual images below to learn more.

For additional information, contact Rev Jessica Wright.
You still have time to sign up for a meal packaging shift.
