363 Sandwich Making for the Homeless
Wednesday, Nov 4 6:15-7:15pm
RUMC partners with 363 Sandwiches to help to feed the homeless in Minneapolis. Through volunteering just one hour of your time, we can together make 1,000 sandwiches for the hungry. Friends are welcome and all ages can help out. For the sake of those who receive these sandwiches, if you are not feeling well or have a cold, please refrain from sandwich making for the evening. There will be other opportunities to join in this ministry in the future.
FAMILIES MOVING FORWARD is Coming!
It’s time to start getting ready to host up to four families without homes from Beacon’s Families Moving Forward program. The week of Sunday, November 15th through the morning of Sunday, November 22nd guests will stay with us from around 5:30 every evening until 7:00 every morning, eating with us and sleeping in our upstairs Sunday school wing.
Please prayerfully consider becoming involved in this ministry. There are many volunteer opportunities. Look for our bulletin board and information and sign-up table in the Commons between services. We need meal preparers, dinner hosts, people to work with children, overnight hosts, furniture movers, people to set up guest rooms, do laundry, and coordinate food – many ways to help that vary in time commitment, skill sets, and degree of interaction with program participants. Many positions require little or no experience and can be done with a friend or family member.
-Together we can use our gifts to make this a meaningful ministry. -
The Walker Senior Center has put out a call for Dignity Quilts. They are blankets that cover the bodies of residents that have passed as they are being wheeled out of their room. If you feel called, you may bring gently used or new full size quilts or blankets to church. A member of our United Methodist Women’s group will get them to Walker and into the hands of the coordinator.
An important part of Richfield United Methodist Church’s ministry is to reach out to others on a local, national, and international level. You are invited to help extend Christ’s love to other by joining in our efforts.
