Put Your Good Intentions to Work!

When we join the United Methodist Church, we vow to support it with our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness.  But sometimes, our good intentions get lost in the day-to-day hustle and bustle of life.  As a church, how are we doing with our promises?  Can you help fill in the blanks?  Here are some ways that you could be of service to others:  serve as an usher, become a church closer, teach or assist with a Sunday School Class or volunteer for the mowing team.  Contact the church office to volunteer! 440-526-8938 or office@brecksvilleumc.com

Canned soups
Tuna and other canned fish

Paper products, such as napkins and paper towels, are also greatly appreciated. 

Your contributions make a world of difference to families in need.

Soap for Hope

Do you know that SNAP benefits can only be used for food and for plants and seeds to grow food?  This means that soaps and household cleaners are a great need for our brothers and sisters served by Brookside Food Center.  This month, we’re focusing our collection on bar soap, body wash and household cleaners. Moved to help? Please bring donations to the bin in the coatroom by Thursday, March 16.
