Serve
Helping Hands Food Pantry
We have obtained lots of spaghetti sauce from our government sources, but no pasta. Obviously this means we are in need of donations of pasta to give out with the sauce. For your convenience, there is a basket next to the Welcome Desk in the lobby of the church for you to leave your donations when you come to worship on Sundays. Thank you for your continued support of this mission!
SMUMC now has an AED
