VIDEO FROM OUR FESTIVAL OF THREE KINGS EVENT IN DECEMBER:
2018 marks the ninth year that Helena UMC has sponsored our Festival of Three Kings project -- where church members buy Christmas gifts for the foster children in Shelby County DHR ... plus the church holds a morning of games, Santa visits and more for the foster children each December.
It's one of our favorite mission projects each year!
God's Cupboard - monthly
We provide non-perishable food items to assist three local food pantries and deliver to them once a month. So bring a jar of peanut butter or a box of cereal the next time you come to church. You may drop off your donations in the wooden box in the hallway next to the fellowship hall.
Firehouse Shelter - monthly
Can you serve a meal with a smile and a word of encouragement? If so, you could join us on the first Thursday of each month when we serve dinner at the downtown men's shelter. Other opportunities to serve are: leading a Bible study or teaching a life skills class.
Knitting Group & Plarn Ministry
Ronald McDonald House
Each month a care package is shipped overseas to those serving in our military. Items that are specifically requested would be: powder laundry detergent, dryer sheets, protein bars, , body wash and deodorant, feminine body wash and shampoo. You may drop off your donations in the hallway located next to the fellowship hall.
