Spruce Up the Village – Saturday, 5/19
All willing hands are invited to help clean up the gardens in the Erie Canal Park in preparation for the Memorial Day festivities. The wet weather has impeded progress in preparing the beds for mulch, so there may be a need for weeding as well. This is a community event – Please bring your own rake, shovel, hoe, weeding tools and a wheelbarrow if you have them. No need to sign up; just show up with a willingness to work from 10:00 am until noon, Saturday, May 19.

Tools:  Necessary for Life
Contributions to CWS Tools means Church World Service will be ready to help people around the world gain the resources and develop the skills necessary to sustain themselves and their families and to build viable communities. Honor or memorialize the man or men in your life who gave you some of life’s tools! Simply place the money and completed form in an envelope (on the tables around the Sanctuary) and place it in the offering plate. Collection begins today through June 10th. The names will be printed for Father’s Day. Please see Mary Ann if you have questions.

Food for Our 4 Legged Friends
Did you notice the dog house in Whitmore Lounge? No, JUMC hasn’t adopted a dog (despite my begging), but the (people) food pantry is asking that our furry friends are not forgotten… Seniors and low income residents in the area often struggle to provide food for their pets too. Please donate dog or cat food if you’re able to do so. Thank you.

​​​​​​ Church Council Meeting:  Wed., May 23rd

 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me.  In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?"     [John 14:1-3]

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!”(Ps. 122:1)
