Angel House Orphanage & Secondary School
Last January a group of people and a mission that you supported traveled to Tanzania to supply, build and train others how to use a greenhouse. Through your generous financial support and prayers the greenhouse is off to a great start. Well done good and faithful servants. Here is an article from the March edition of the Angel House Newsletter with some follow up pictures.
If you would like more information on the work at the orphanages, see http://grassrootsangelhouse.org or like their Facebook Page.
Prime Timers Respite Care
The church has begun operation of this Prime Timers. This limited program will provide free respite care for family members having full-time 24-hour-a-day responsibility to care for family members needing assistance. Respite care is a short-term break for family caregivers of the sick, elderly, or disabled.
There are currently four that are registered. There are brochures available in the office if you know of a family that would benefit from this ministry. Please feel free to recommend to others you may know.
Prime Timers meet each Tuesday from 9:00am—3:00pm.
There is no cost to participate. Activities include snacks, puzzles, games, dominoes, fellowship, bingo, home-cooked lunch,movie, and more.
If you have questions, want more information, want to observe or you would like to volunteer to help, please call the office (254) 386-8155 or call or text Michael Langford (254) 386-1296. You can also email Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cookies For Troops
Hamilton FUMC instructions:
Please bake your cookies (no nuts) and put one dozen in a sealable bag. Bring them to the church between Dec. 12-16. On Sunday, December 16 at 1:00 we will gather to sort and place all the cookies in boxes getting ready to deliver them to Dublin FUMC on Dec 17.
Our goal for this year is to deliver 200 dozen cookies. If everybody helps we will be able to reach this goal. We would also like to have a number of volunteers to help sort and box the cookies on December 16. It won’t take all that long to get it done if we have the volunteers.
Our United Methodist Men are touching the lives of hungry children by loading more than 40 backpacks with food each week for Hamilton Independent School District students. The school identifies students who would be without food over the weekend, when school breakfasts and lunches are not available. The Tarrant County Food Bank supplies non-perishable food, but a local organization must agree to sponsor the program and fill the backpacks. Our UMM has agreed to serve as sponsor. The men fill the backpacks at their breakfast meeting each Thursday and deliver them to the school, where Robin Anglin, teacher and FUMC member, receives them. The children return the backpacks to be loaded again. The United Methodist Men meet at 8 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall and welcome other men to join them.
