Serving Those in Need

JUMC will be preparing, transporting, and serving dinner at the Brown Memorial Church in Syracuse on Sunday, May 19th. Our menu will be: Sloppy Joes with rolls, cole slaw, corn, cookies and brownies, chocolate milk and lemonade. There are tasks for every gift and talent! You can make a monetary donation bake cookies, or warm-up, transport and serve the meal. Envelopes for a love offering to help fund the cost of this dinner will be in the bulletins on (two prior Sundays). The signup sheets for this event are on the Mission/Outreach bulletin board. This is a wonderful way to serve our brothers and sisters in the United Methodist Church. The Mission Team is still seeking a coordinator for two annual Brown Memorial dinners.


District Discipleship Training Days

The District Leadership Team has taken very seriously the mission of the church to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World. Thus, we are inviting all Lay leaders, Lay Members to Conference, SPRC and Administrative Council members of the district to attend three special training sessions which will be held at the Marcellus UMC, Sat May 4, 11 (10am-12pm) and May 18 (10am-2pm.) All others from our church are encouraged to attend and participate in this vital work. In preparation for the training we ask that you download and become familiar with the booklet, engaging your community, from the General Board of Discipleship. Contact Pastor Glen and he will send you a PDF of this booklet. Please note: this is a 40 page document.

High School Comfort Closet

Currently in great demand are the following:

Toilet paper,Paper towels, Toothpaste and toothbrushes, Book bags, Laundry cleaning supplies, Garbage bags, Snack type food items- individually wrapped bars or bagged snacks that students can grab and go

These items can be placed on the shelves in the Whitmore Lounge from May 26-June 16. 


Mother Day Blankets

Last year, thousands of Church World Service blankets were distributed to disaster victims throughout the US. A $10 donation will provide one blanket. While this is an

ongoing mission, you can choose to honor / remember a strong woman in your life and surround another with her warmth... Simply place the money and completed form in an envelope (on the tables around the Sanctuary) and place it in the offering plate. The list of names will be printed for Mother’s Day (5/12). Please share your blessings and increase the outreach of this mission.
