One Great Hour of Sharing Offering


In United Methodist Churches, this Sunday is the One Great Hour of Sharing Offering. This offering supports the administration and operating expenses for the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). UMCOR is our church’s front line response organization in the face of critical situations in our nation and around the world. Included in your bulletin this Sunday will be a special envelope, with the hope that you will return it  with your generous gift to support this important mission.

For more information please visit the UMCOR website at
https://www.umcor.org/UMCOR/Programs/One-Great-Hour-of-Sharing

 

Special Offering for Summer Lunch Program


Sundays during Lent following the Children’s Sermon, the children of Calvary have been collection spare change and bills for the summer lunch program to make sure that children in our community have a hot meal every weekday during the summer months when they are not in school. So far, $363.50 has been collected towards our goal of $1000! Thank you everyone for your donations!!
 

Health Kits for UMCOR


When disaster strikes, anywhere in the world, victims need immediate help and support. Physical injuries must be addressed; shelter, food, and clothing need to be acquired; health supplies and educational resources must be provided.  And, all of it as quickly as possible. The United Methodist Church, through the UM Committee on Relief, stands ready to respond because our members work to be prepared! In New Wilmington, PA, at the Mission Barn, supplies are stocked, ready for immediate shipment to areas of need.  Each year at June’s Annual Conference Session we gather kits to stock the Barn. You can help this process by taking the time to purchase the components and packing a Health Kit, School Kit, or another of those needed. Links to instructions for the kits are listed below. Bring your kits to church and we will see that they are moved to the Conference. Some people focus on what to give up for Lent. We challenge you to add something to your faith experience during Lent. Help UMCOR respond to the needs of others.

You can find instructions and videos on how to build all of the kits here:  http://www.umcor.org/UMCOR/Relief-Supplies

UMCOR is currently at capacity with Birthing Kits. Health and School Kits need to be restocked most urgently.
 
  • Bedding Kit - The supplies in the Bedding Kit provide an important source of comfort for displaced persons.
  • Birthing Kit - Birthing kits provide the essential items to promote a safe, clean delivery and to encourage good aftercare.
  • Cleaning Bucket - These supplies enable people to begin the overwhelming job of cleaning up after a flood or hurricane.
  • Health Kit - Health kits provide basic necessities to people who have been forced to leave their homes because of human conflict or natural disaster. Health kits are also used as learning tools in personal hygiene, literacy, nutrition and cooking classes.
  • Layette Kit - Many women do not have swaddling clothes with which to welcome their child into the world. Layette kits provide basic supplies for their baby's needs.
  • School Bag Instructions - How to properly make a school bag for a school kit.
  • School Kit - In some countries, children don't have books or school supplies. Many have no schoolrooms; classes are held in inadequate or half-destroyed buildings, tents, or even the open air. School kits may be these children's only educational resources.
  • Sewing Kit - Sewing kits foster independence rather than dependence. Women can make clothing in their own size and in the style of their culture. Cottage industries often grow out of the sewing classes where women use these kits to practice valuable income-generating skills.

The Daily Bread Is In Need of Winter Clothing


The Daily Bread at New Hope is in need of winter clothing for those that they provide meals to. If you have a winter coat that you don’t use, please bring it in to Calvary so that it can be given to someone in need of its warmth. Also, there is a need for socks, gloves, hats, boxer shorts, and t-shirts (sizes large and XL). Any donations are greatly appreciated. See Doug Lucas or call the church office for details.


 

Old Blankets Needed for the Ugly Quilt Project/Sleeping Bag Ministry


Lynn Sevick

We are in need of old blankets that can be recycled into sleeping bags for the homeless. Please consider donating old blankets to our project. Please see Lynn Sevick if you have any questions.


 

Thank You, Sleeping Bag Ministry!


The Sleeping Bag Ministry donated 12 cozy sleeping bags as well as several hats to Light of Life during the month of January.
 


WANTED: CROCHETERS
Crocheted Sleep Mats for the Homeless


Joan Bradley

The group that makes the quilts for the homeless is looking for persons who are able to crochet. There are directions for using the plastic grocery bags to crochet a plastic mat which keeps the quilts off the ground keeping the quilt drier.  There are already rolls of “plastic yarn” ready to be used and needles are available. If you can crochet or want to learn please contact Joan Bradley. We would love to give a plastic mat with every quilt but are in desperate need of persons who crochet.



Instructions on How to Make the Sleep Mats

You will need approximately 500 plastic grocery bags for each mat.
You will need a crochet hook, size M or larger.
Finished size is 24 X 72 inches.
 
TO MAKE THE “YARN” smooth out the grocery bag, fold it in half lengthwise twice
and cut off seamed bottom and top handles/hanging tabs. Fold in half and cut across,
repeat. This will give you 4 loops. Take a loop and insert another loop, then bring the
rest through to attach (remember how you strung rubber bands together as a child?).
Repeat then wind your “string” of connected loops into a ball. Don’t make the ball too
big to handle. I usually work with one full bag of grocery bags and make three or four
balls out of it then repeat until I run out of bags.
 
TO MAKE THE MAT chain 72 inches using the doubled looped strands of grocery bags.
Single crochet until the mat is 24 inches wide.
 
TO MAKE A CARRYING STRAP chain a length long enough to go around the rolled
mat and slide on, connect that chain into a loop with a single crochet then chain a length
long enough to cross your back, go over your shoulder and reach the other end of the mat.
Chain an additional length equal to the first loop and attach with a single crochet.
 
YOUR SLEEPING MAT IS NOW READY TO GIVE AWAY. YouTube videos are
online for viewing. Just google “sleeping mats for the homeless”.



The picture below is an example of a crocheted sleep mat being made by Calvary's Sleeping Bag Ministry. Below that is an example of what a finished mat will look like.

A group can divide the cost among themselves anyway they choose.

If you, or a group, would like to sponsor a fellowship luncheon, the below forms are available next to the Sunday bulletin for you to fill out.
