For the week of
Tuesday, August 20, 2019 through Monday, August 26, 2019

 

A "Blessing Box" is located behind the church (please see photos above). A "Blessing Box" is stocked with food that is free and available to anyone who is in need. Thirty-five percent of those living in Calloway County are living below the poverty line.

There are several located throughout the city and county. This particular box was built by Dan McKeel and will be maintained by New Life Christian Center,  FCC  and the Wesleyan Circle Group from Murray First United Methodist Church.  

URGENT NEED! We have been asked to stock the box for the month of September. We are asking the congregation to purchase non-perishable items. We also need people to step forward to make sure the box is stocked and drive by and fill it.

Please be sure that the items are individually wrapped (tightly, so we don't get ants in the box!) and that the items are not expired.  Here are some types of items that are suggested:

 
  • baby food jars
  • canned foods
  • boxed macaroni and cheese
  • Ramen noodles
  • Spaghetti and spaghetti sauce
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Fruit cups
  • Boxed cereal
  • Personal hygiene items such as deodorant, shampoo, body wash

You can drop the items in the box located in the back pew of the sanctuary.
