Can you help out just one Sunday a month following the East Campus 11:00am service? A quick cleanup is all that is necessary. Please contact Adleen Rawlings for details.
We are in need of help on Saturdays at our Thrift Shop on the West Campus—just three hours per month! Shifts are 9:45am – 12:30pm & 12:30pm – 3:00pm. We also need some able-bodied persons to help move the rolling clothing racks in and out of the storage unit on Saturdays at 9:45am and also at 2:45pm—it only takes 15 minutes! Please contact Gloria Bruno at 561-852-0616 if you can help.
The HAITI INITIATIVE was created with a donation from the William and Vivian Joel endowment left to the First United Methodist of Boca Raton to be used in support of the Haitian people locally and in Haiti. A board of nine people were nominated to independently oversee and manage the funds and build an organizational structure and decide on a vision for the future. The initial focus of the Haiti Initiative is in the Pignon region of Haiti at the Christian School of New Vision in LaJeune, Haiti. The CSNV had been a supported FUMC Outreach Mission with church member donations and mission trips for several years. Through subsequent mission trips and contacts in the Pignon region, other projects and partnerships have been developed. Locally, we have developed relationships with Haitian schools and churches in our community. For more information, please contact Dan Bertotti.
Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with Habitat homeowner (partner) families and volunteers. Habitat homes are sold to partner families at no profit and are financed with affordable, zero-interest loans. The homeowner is responsible for the monthly mortgage payment. The revenue received from the mortgage payments is used to support Habitat programs. For more information please see Habitat for Humanity’s website at www.habitatsouthpalmbeach.org

An estimated 1.4 million U.S. children take care of ailing parents, grandparents, and siblings. The United Methodist Church has created a video about AACY and Connie Siskowski, a United Methodist and member of our church, who was inspired to create this organization to support child caregivers. Connie was also named one of CNN’s 2012 Heroes (video.) A more detailed video about what AACY is all about can be seen here. For more information, please go to www.aacy.org or call 561-391-7401.
