ADVENT OFFERING OPPORTUNITIES
The Finance Committee has designated this year’s Advent and Christmas Eve offerings to be split three ways: Hillcrest Transitional Housing, The Underground Community Gatherings, and UMCOR US Disaster Relief. There are special offering envelopes in the pews that you may use for your donation or you may mark your check (payable to Lenexa UMC) “Advent”.
HELP LUMC WHILE YOU SHOP AT UMC MARKET
Begin your shopping at umcmarket.org. You must register and then you can choose “Lenexa” as the church to receive your donation. Then start shopping! Each store will donate money to LUMC based on your purchases. Some examples are Barnes & Noble (2%), Old Navy (2%), and Target (1%). That’s just a sampling; there are many more stores that you may browse on the website. There are also often discounts for UMCMarket customers.
