Knitting Ministry resumes this Monday, September 20th

The Ministry was on a break for the summer. Regular meetings will resume on September 20, 2010 at 1:00 pm and the first and third Monday of each month there after. We thank all our members for their work this year. We have a nice supply of prayer shawls, and a good head start on lap rugs for the VNA Hospice Christmas baskets. We have made baby blankets, hats and booties for MMH birthing center, and red bed blankets for the MMH ICU . This fall we will be considering some additional charities to which we may donate . New members are always welcome as are items from those who prefer to work at home.

MACC Moment

Dear Church Family,

Thank you so much for the overwhelming response to our Community Pantry and soup kitchen‘s needs this past year.

You filled our pantry, cellar, store house and soup kitchen storage many times over. Your generosity fed over 2,000 people each month for over a year and no one was turned away.
The MACC Food Pantry is doing very well right now but a few items are in short supply:

Baked Beans
Mac & Cheese
Canned potatoes
Soup: Chicken and Chowders
Ramen Noodles
Canned meats
Jelly & Jam
Jell-O & pudding

I want everyone at North United Methodist Church to know how much we appreciate your support of programs at MACC. Please be assured that your kindness is so important to us.

Blessings to all.

Dale Doll, Director of Food Services, MACC Charities


Who would you like to bring this Sunday? The entire month of September is Open House month in the United Methodist Church. So let's all invite someone else to perhaps the most important activity that we engage in -- care of the soul and joy-filled living.

Church Photo Directory

Are you ready to see yourself in pictorial form as a member of North United Methodist Church? Well you can and we want you. North will be publishing a church directory in the Fall and today marks the beginning of our adventure. You are the characters- as God’s people North Church is the setting. The plot lies in our Mission here in Manchester. The action is in the Sunday service, in the Sunday School, in our many activities and classes, and very much in our outreach and our mission. There will be pictures of all of this, and most importantly all of YOU. Pictures will be taken of family groups- groups of ten and of one. Pictures will be taken free of charge and each family will receive a free 8x10 photo to keep. No pressure to purchase more, but this could be an opportunity to have photos as Christmas gifts. Our focus will be highlighting our North Church family. Olan Mills is our photo agent, with years and years of experience. Pictures will be taken on Oct. 1 and 2. Watch for more information and opportunities to signup for your own appointment.
