CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS
A team of committed volunteers has developed a strong and very well attended children’s Sunday School program here at JCUMC.  The program runs from September through June. Children attend the first half of the regular worship service which includes a children’s message followed by the collection of the Noisy Offering.  Children collect loose change from congregation members in tin buckets which make a lot of noise, thus the name, Noisy Offering. We conclude with a prayer of thanks and the children then go to their respective Sunday School classes for age appropriate lessons and activities while the adults enjoy the remainder of the service.

Founded in 1988 by Sara Pines, MSW, Ph.D., Friendship Donations Network’s mission is to rescue fresh nutritious food from stores and farms that would otherwise be thrown away and redistribute it to neighbors in need. This is accomplished by an extensive network of volunteers who pick up donations of mostly perishable excess and day-old food and deliver them to pantries and programs that serve in excess of 2,100 people weekly. We divert over 500,000 lbs. of good food from the landfill each year!Find us on Facebook:
