College Care Packages
As our college students prepare for semester finals, we, as a church, want to send them some love. Help us gather goodies to send care packages over these next few weeks to send our students so they know that their church family is thinking about them during this stressful time. Whether you purchase things to add or are just able to write an encouraging note, every contribution will help our college kiddos feel the love.
Care Package Details- Collecting until Sunday March 19; box set up on table in narthex w/sign for anyone who wants to drop off goodies; preparing around 20 boxes for alumni and college aged students that have visited FUMCD; link is to an Amazon wish list (like a registry): http://www.amazon.com/registry/wishlist/XXAFEKY3FPTW
