Christmas Baskets

Thank you for all the donations that have started to come in for Christmas baskets. There is still an opportunity to pick up a tag to purchase a toy for a child to be included in the basket. Please consider picking up cereal when you do your weekly grocery shopping. If you have freezer space to store the turkeys, let us know!

Covenant Groups

Please consider joining a group to explore and develop your spirituality. Sessions meet weekly in the Parlor, virtual, and in the Library. Attendance to at least 2 or 3 sessions per month will greatly benefit the group discussion.

Weekenders Backpack Ministry

We continue to provide 24 backpacks to students at Geraldine Claytor Magnet Academy in Bridgeport for our Weekenders backpack ministry outreach to alleviate food insecurity. The kids are settling into their school year and our backpack program has begun. While our cabinets are well-stocked with some items, we are looking for many of our protein items on our grocery list.
Donations of food, such as tuna (2-3 oz), chicken ramen noodles, cheese and crackers, and juice or any dollar amount is in great need at this time and most welcome. If you have some time available this school year and would like to take a more active part in shopping, planning, or packing, we're happy to have your support. 
Please speak to Becki Anderson or Mary Agostino of -  Golden Hill’s Unit of United Methodist Women
