Are you looking for a simple way to serve?  A project that is family-friendly? A project where you can actually sit down on the job doing it? Then get ready for "Sack Sunday!" 

Bring a sack lunch (drinks and dessert will be furnished.) After eating, we will start by folding 20,000 bags for the Harvester's "Stamp Out Hunger" campaign. Granted, 20,000 is a lot of bags, but it is only a small portion of the 1/2 million bags needed for the campaign. Folded bags are distributed to our mail carriers who place them in mailboxes throughout the Kansas City and Topeka area. The bags will then be picked up by the Mail Carriers on May 9th with hopes that the bags are filled with non-perishable items or that recipients have placed a check to Harvester in the envelope included in the folded bags. 

In addition to folding, please bring non-glass, non-perishable food items to Fellowship Hall on April 12th. There will be a special time during the service for everyone to place their donated food items at the altar.

One folded sack at a time can make a difference in our community. It's in the bag!

When: Following Sunday's service, April 12, 2015 (11:45am)

Where:  MUMC's Fellowship Hall

Cost/Registration:  No cost other than food items donated and no registration is needed.  JUST SHOW UP!
