Mainstreeter Online Weekly Blast

Human Relations Day is a denomination-wide Special Sunday set aside to celebrate and raise awareness to further the development of better human relations by involving congregations in community and youth outreach. A special offering for Human Relations Day will be taken this Sunday in recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday. The gifts build King's vision of "the beloved community" through programs such as Community Developers and United Methodist Voluntary Services and Youth Offender Rehabilitation Programs. They recognize how intertwined and connected we all are. "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly."

It's a good reminder also for this series on living on planet earth. As we look to our kin in creatures and creation, we recognize that what we do to the planet, we do to ourselves. United Methodists are working globally to care for the Earth. Last Sunday, we posted the videos we would've watched in worship (had big snow not have fallen) - exciting work to come together across national borders to address better stewardship of the planet. Check them out and donate to support the continued work of the UM connection.

Next meeting Wed. Jan. 17, 2024 7 PM

In person in chapel and

online via google meets

Happy New Year to everyone. The next meeting of UMW is Wed. Jan. 17 at 7 PM. We will plan for an in-person meeting with virtual option on google meets, but may go totally virtual if weather is bad. Mavis Pyle will share about her experience volunteering at Stepping Stones. We will spend a good portion of the meeting setting our guideline budget for 2024 and discussing some initial plans for meetings through June. Bring your ideas along. We hope to plan some daytime winter craft workshops and Kathy Romano has an idea for a baking day at church preparing coffee hour foods to freeze. We were excited that the 30 Days of Sharing Food Box was filled and we were able to deliver to the Soup Kitchen in time for the holidays. Thanks to everyone who contributed.
