During these unprecedented times, we are grateful for your continued support of Monona UMC. Since we will not be passing the offering plate up and down the pews of the sanctuary for a few weeks, this is another thing that might have to be modified. Those of us who give by electronic fund transfer (EFT) will not need to change anything. The rest of us can use the old-fashioned mail system (remember the US Postal Service?) which still works quite well. (Monona United Methodist Church, 606 Nichols Road, Monona, WI 53716). One time electronic donations can be made using the Donate Now button on the bottom of the page. Our ministries will continue and we value your faithful giving. Thank you so much!
January MISSION OF THE MONTH
Monona UMC Human Welfare Fund
“If one of your brethren becomes poor and falls into poverty among you, then you shall help him, like a stranger or a sojourner, that he may live with you.” Leviticus 25:35
For some members of Monona UMC, the social distancing that is attempting to slow the spread of COVID-19 will seriously impact their incomes. Given the current conomic hardships facing many persons and families in our area, your support of the Human Welfare Fund is helping your neighbors in need.
The MUMC Human Welfare Fund is a benevolent fund at our church that characterizes the true goodness of the mind and spirit, the unbiased kindness to do good. It is the expression of agape love (Greek word for unconditional love). MUMC has always been a church of compassion and love because of the gracious giving of its people
The Human Welfare Fund is one of the ways we minister to those in our church family. Anyone in need of using this fund should contact the office at 608-222-1633.
Please support this Mission. Mark and mail your check or increase your online giving indicating the "Human Welfare Fund".
Thank you for your generous support of this beneficial mission.
SECOND HARVEST NEEDS VOLUNTEERS
Volunteers are ESSENTIAL to Second Harvest Foodbank. And, Second Harvest Foodbank is ESSENTIAL to the community. We are in need of volunteers to help us fill pre-packed Care Boxes. Volunteer shifts are available throughout the day, 7 days a week. Click here to learn more.
Care Boxes are filled with healthy foods, and are being distributed to those struggling with hunger through our partner agencies and our mobile pantries throughout our 16 county service area. An average of 2,600 boxes are being distributed per day! We need volunteer support to assist in packing these boxes.
We are committed to keeping our staff and volunteers safe by limiting the number of volunteers during shifts as well as adding new measures to maintain a clean and healthy environment.
