Common Good

Serve- Can you help with  

just one Thursday?
Common Good , which is a part of Embrace, has asked us to help with the Thursday summer program meals for their students.  This is a six week summer program and runs from June 6 to July 14.  Tom Eblen  is the point of contact.  The time frame will be from 11:30 to 1:30.
ALL of the students gather at 12:30 to eat lunch  together.  It’s our understanding we will be serving chicken breasts, mac and cheese, etc.  
Tom Eblen-
Ky UM Children HomeThis Sunday is the fifth Sunday!
The Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children & Youth offering is this week.  Every 5th Sunday, we support our ministry to children and youth with histories of abuse, neglect and/or family trauma.  KyUMH bring hope and healing to over 150 youth and families throughout Kentucky each day though our residential and community-based programs. Check out to read success stories and more about the ministry.  You can donate online or make a donation in the offering plate on Sunday. Please designate that it is for the Methodist Homes.  Thank you for your part in sustaining this ministry for 145 years!
