All October – MissionQuest: a  day you pick to be in service!

Bottle Returns! Did you know we have collected hundreds of cans and bottles to help fund MissionQuest programs? WE NEED YOU to help!  Contact Tracy to schedule a bottle/can pickup time, and then return whenever it works for your schedule.  Volunteers will earn hourly credits toward future youth mission expenses.  Apparently, Meijer locations are the best for success in our area when doing returns and open throughout the day.
Sewing Ministry!  Did you know sewing could be an act of service?  If you are interested in a sewing project to help others, just contact Tracy at tortlieb@fumcnorthville.org to sign up or for more details.  We can provide a machine to borrow, supplies and some instruction!  Have friends you want to work with?  Let Tracy know and we can schedule a “social distanced” project at the church.  Have cotton fabric to donate? We are seeking some fun prints (scraps 8″x8″ or larger are welcomed).
