Jesus said, "Suffer the little children to come unto me."  One of the ways we do that is to support those children who are in need.  Would you be willing to help a child this year?  Here's how...
Monticello UMC has partnered with Cross-lines to provide 1,600 backpacks to children in the Kansas City Metro area.  These are children who will struggle to get these items for school.  So, we hope you are willing to serve God by serving the children.  Collection takes place only until July 29, so help today if you can.
Please pick up a few items when you see those school supply sales and place them in the collection bin in Fellowship Hall.  Especially needed are the 1-1/2" or 2" wide 3-ring binders and the dividers and pencil bags that go inside them. 
The following is a list of needed items: 
  • ***Notebooks (3-ring binders, 1-1/2" or 2")
  • ***Packs of dividers for 3-ring binders
