NEWNAN TORNADO RELIEF

Saturday, May 15th, we are partnering with Newnan Chapel UMC and a number of other organizations to provide much needed tornado relief. Newnan FUMC has been asked to chip in with grocery and gas gift cards. If you would like to give, simply drop them off at the office and mark them for Tornado Relief. We are also looking for volunteers to help at Newnan Chapel UMC in regards to sorting, delivery, and set up. If you would like to give of your time, click on the link below:

COMMUNITY SERVICE

SERVE COWETA

Saturday, May 15, we will send out volunteer teams for debris clean up and serve wherever there is a need. Residents can ask for assistance and volunteers can register through servecoweta.com.

We especially need chainsaw teams and heavy equipment such as tractors and skid steers. We will also send teams to local nonprofits needing volunteers. 

 

This event will look similar to the second county Volunteer Reception Center last month. Location to be determined.

FULL TIME MISSION

BAGS OF HOPE

The Bags of Hope mission project was started as a way to let patients undergoing chemotherapy  treatments know that we are praying for them and their families. Each bag contains special treats and essentials to brighten their day and a special note of encouragement from the Newnan FUMC.  We are sending 100 bags a month to the Cancer Treatment Center of America here in Newnan thanks to your help!  During this time of isolation this small gift of Hope is so important.  Please join the efforts of our missions committee by donating any of the following items to help fill these bags!

  • Small hand lotions

  • Small hand sanitizers or hand wipes

  • Chap sticks

  • Small boxes or travel size  Kleenexes

  • Small note pads

  • Pencils or pens

  • Word Searches or anything fun to pass the time

  • Hard individually wrapped candy

  • Suckers

  • Spearmint gum

  • Cereal bars

  • Small bags of pretzels, animal crackers, goldfish crackers, plain chips... nothing too spicy!

  • Water

There will be boxes set up in Parish Hall and Gathering Room (105). You can make a cash donatation on line by going to newnanfumc.org/give and selecting Bags of Hope as your option for the memo. If you are in a bind and need someone to pick up items OR have additional questions contact Betsy Conoly at 770-301-6360.
