Stop Hunger Now Project
Since it is often the custom to give up something during Lent, we are encouraging all of our members to do just that, but with a twist. With the money that is saved by forgoing a daily cup of coffee or soda, one meal a week, or whatever you decide, we can help end hunger in the world. Along with Eden Chapel, Lost Creek, and Stillwater First United Methodist Churches, we are working together towards a goal of $12,500 which will provide 50,000 meals through the Stop Hunger Now organization. We have not accomplished this goal and are working towards a new goal of $13, 194.41. Directed by a former United Methodist pastor, this organization is steeped in the Wesleyan tradition of feeding the hungry and working with the poor. We encourage you to bring your offering weekly as we keep track of how much is collected. Set aside Sunday, May 4th and join us for our day of packing as volunteers gather in the Family Life Center at Stillwater First. Last year, nearly 200 people gathered to package 58,000 meals.
