Sturgis First United Methodist Church

This year we stayed in our home town of Sturgis and helped families that needed a variety of fixings. Decks were rebuilt, brush was cleared, painting was done, and roofs repaired.

Mission Trip – June 23- July 1 Gatlinburg, KY
“Our” mission trip June 25th through July 1st is to Gatlinburg, Kentucky to help with the devastation from fires. Everyone is part of this ministry of sharing God’s love.
The team is staying at the Gatlinburg Presbyterian Church and working directly with the LIVE-IT ministry through the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance.
Thank you all for the response to the sloppy joe lunch. The donations received were $199.00.
There is a sign up sheet for purchasing Mission Trip T-shirts on the bulletin board outside the sanctuary. Near the chapel and sanctuary entrances will be ladders with tags of items needed for our congregation’s mission trip. The items are letters of support that are read during times of devotion, gas gift cards (please turn in to office), sponsorship donations, and snacks that are used for sack lunches on job sites or traveling to and from Gatlinburg.
The next meeting will be May 15th at 7:00 p.m. in fellowship hall. Please plan to attend this meeting if you are interested in joining the team. Release and medical forms need to be turned in at this meeting.

RETURNABLE BOTTLES AND CANS
We are still collecting returnable bottles and cans as a fundraiser for our mission trip. Please place your rinsed out bottles and cans in the wooden container between the double doors at the circle drive entrance. Jackie Brazo has volunteered to return all the bottles and cans to the store. The money raised is used for gas cards for the drivers on the mission trip.
