Angel Tree ministry
The Prison Fellowship Angel Tree ministry is underway for 2021. Buy a gift for a child whose mom or dad is in prison on behalf of the incarcerated parent -- it is a selfless and worthy cause. Please stop by table in the Welcome Center on Sunday to get more information about this important ministry.
Donate a poinsettia
Would you like to help decorate the sanctuary for Advent? By giving a poinsettia in honor or memory of a loved one, you will be remembering them in a special way and helping to beautify the worship center. If you would like to donate, please email Julie Gibson by Dec. 12.
Staff gifts for Christmas
During this Advent season, we would like to thank our wonderful staff here at Community. We are accepting donations for Christmas gifts. If you would like to contribute, please mark your donation as "Staff Gift" and drop it in the basket at the back of the Worship Center or mail it to the church office by Dec. 10. If you are not able to give monetarily, a simple "thank you" is always appreciated.

Volunteer opportunity with Loaves and Fishes
We're looking for more volunteers to serve meals to those in need through Loaves and Fishes.
Community helps serve food for homeless guests on the third Saturday of each month. On each fourth Sunday, we prepare and serve the meal, 4:30-6:45 p.m., at the Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church. At present, because of COVID-19, the food has been a bagged meal offered outdoors. Before this, meals had been offered from the kitchen and the guests have been seated in the dining room.
For more information about volunteering for Loaves and Fishes, contact Linda Fillwock at 573-445-3991 or 505-301-8108, or click here to send her an email.
The crochet ministry is for people of all ages and skill levels. They will meet on the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Welcome Center.
