Giving

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!

 

Monthly Community Meals

Our Church has been the proud host of monthly Community Meals since August of 2023. These events take place at the church (mostly!) on the 4th Sunday of the month. These dinners are free and open to all. The dinners begin around 5:30 pm and feature an option of items for various food needs. All ages are welcome.

January MISSION OF THE MONTH

St Vincent de Paul's 32nd Annual Recycle The Warmth Event

We have a NEW Mission of the Month each month.

Our current mission is ST VINCENT DE PAUL’S 32nd ANNUAL RECYCLE THE WARMTH 

Here’s what our Mission Team had to say:

Our mission in January will support the 32nd annual Recycle the Warmth Blanket Drive. St.  Vincent de Paul is an organization committed to helping neighbors in need without regard to  religion, race, or ethnic background. This drive helps provide blankets and bedding throughout the year to all those who seek help. We need your help in making this possible.  

The official drive will take place the weekend of January 26-28. You may purchase new blankets or donate your gently-used blankets and bedding. Bring the blankets to church or  drop them off at any of the St. Vinny’s Thrift Stores in the Madison area. Blankets are also available to purchase at the St. Vinny’s Thrift Stores.

You may also donate funds to purchase new bedding. Please mark your check or offering  envelope with “Blanket Drive.”

SECOND HARVEST NEEDS VOLUNTEERS

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.
