SERVING OUR COMMUNITY

MONTHLY MISSION – FOOD PANTRY INFORMATION – CLUBHOUSE

Our “official” date for our CROP Walk will be Oct 3rd at 1:00 pm at Columbus
UMC. You may participate individually or in small groups before that date, or you
may join in our short walk on October 3rd. We also invite all participants to
gather for a celebration and picture on the 3rd. We promise to have you home in
time for the Packer game!
We will register everyone on-line, which will give us more options for
fundraising. Our CROP Walk can be found here: www.crophungerwalk.org/
columbuswi. A team has already been created for Columbus UMC. Walkers may
join that team or create their own. The advantage of on-line teams is that teams
can use social media and e-mails to solicit donations. Walkers may also do a
Facebook fundraiser. Our Facebook page is here: https://www.facebook.com/
columbuswicropwalk.
We will also be accepting donations at church. Checks should be made out to
COLUMBUS UMC and may be given to individual walkers, placed in the Offering
plate, or mailed to church. All donations are due by October 10th.
25% of our proceeds will go to the Columbus/Fall River Food Pantry. Participants
in the first CROP Hunger Walk in 1969 walked 20 miles in solidarity with an
average woman’s daily journey for clean water in some parts of the world.
Because of CROP Hunger Walks in communities like Columbus, today that
average walk for water is now only 3.4 miles.
For more information or to register, please contact Eileen Bennett at (920) 623-
4659 or bennettpesl@charter.net.

September Mission Offering – UMCOR Haiti Earthquake Response

We are deeply saddened by the news of the tragic events that have recently occurred in Haiti. On Saturday, August 14, Haiti experienced a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that produced widespread destruction in the western region of the country. The current death toll stands at 1,297 and left at least 5,700 people injured in the Caribbean nation, with thousands more displaced from their destroyed or damaged homes.
Our September Mission Offering will go to UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) Haiti response. We invite you to make a donation to UMCOR to aid in the response efforts in Haiti. We ask you to pray for the families of those who have died or are missing. We also pray for the communities experiencing upheaval and uncertainty. UMCOR stands in solidarity and is in communication with partners in Haiti as the full scale of this disaster unfolds.
