Unified Erie's Youth Campaign
take
Based upon research by the Mercyhurst Civic Institute, Unified Erie's new campaign has launched this July to promote parents and youth to participate in faith based worship for at least one hour per week, citing multiple worldly benefits such as grades and reduced violence.  For more information, see this article or the Take Me to Worship add campaign here.
Henderson UM Church's Food Pantry Drive
bag
The Missions Committee is once again collecting non-perishable food items for the Henderson Food Pantry as part of the “Bags of Love” campaign.  Please bring in your bags of non-perishable food items and leave them in the church office or Fellowship Hall in
the marked collection totes beginning January 22nd  and running through February 12th.  We pray this ministry impacts lives and the grace of God can be present in the hearts who receive these gifts!
