2020 Census Proclaims 'National Digital Weekend' for Census Response
If you have not had the chance to submit your Census information, now is the time to do so! Action for Bridgeport Community Development, Inc (ABCD), created a YouTube video to help households to complete their 2020 Census submission. The video provides a snapshot of the city and reminds us that being counted is crucial to the funding and support the city will receive. 
It only takes 5 minutes - and the benefits to our city and state are enormous. Much of our federal funding allocation comes from census data: for schools, for locally provided social services, and more. 

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.

Advent Study

Plan to join this year's Advent study, "All I Want for Christmas, Opening the Gifts of God's Grace" by James W. Moore. You can choose from either study times held on Sundays at 9:45 A.M. or Mondays at 7:30 P.M.

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
