A Special Thank You from Not Here Ministry
We would like to thank all the folks who supported the luncheon served on November 18.

This is such a special mission and one that we are passionate about. We are so grateful to be able to continue serving our neighbors who appreciate the warmth of a meal and fellowship.

Though most of our food is donated by local restaurants, there are supplies and staples needed to make the meals complete. This is not a budgeted expense. We rely on contributions from individuals and groups within and beyond HUMC.

So again, THANK YOU for helping to make Not Here work and grow into a far-reaching ministry.

Blessings,
Not Here Ministry Team
Club 3:16 Service Project: Mid-Year Supply Refresher
Club 3:16 (4th & 5th grade) is having a “Mid-Year Supply Refresher” collecting school supplies for a local high school in Concord.

Did you know??? High schools don’t get many supplies from back to school drives in the fall & what they do get is focused on elementary needs.

Requested Items:
*Mechanical Pencils (and extra lead)      * #2 Pencils
*Binders (gently used or new)                 * Dividers for the binders
*Plain colored backpack (please no characters- it’s for high school)
* Any plain colored new sweatshirts/sweat pants- adult sizes for cold days.

If you don’t have time to shop, we will take monetary donations and Club 3:16 will do the shopping for you. Contact Jaimee @ 443-465-7575 or jaimee8578@gmail.com                                           
Collection bins will be in the lobby. Thank you for being a high school student’s magical supply elf this Christmas season.
