Here’s an opportunity to follow up on ways to advocate for immigrant children who are in this country without parents or guardians. In a powerful talk, FUMC member Anne Mathias recently shared her volunteer experiences as a Child Advocate for Unaccompanied Migrant Children. Pastor Joe also talked about the UMC teachings on immigration. As a result, we will reconvene in August to explore this issue more thoroughly. The next meeting will focus on steps we can take individually and as a congregation and will include opportunities to write postcards to our legislators.

For the past 11 years, churches throughout Elmhurst have held Grace Cafes twice a month to serve dinner to anyone in our community who may be hungry or lonely. First Church’s only opportunity to serve Grace Café this year is coming up on Monday December 18. Once again we ask for your help as we welcome more than 100 of our neighbors for a special holiday meal and warm fellowship. Sign-up sheets to help provide ingredients, cook, set up, greet, serve, and clean up are by the Fellowship Table in Wesley Hall. All ages are invited to participate. For this holiday menu, we are asking not only for food items, but also for monetary donations so that we may shop for some of the necessary ingredients in quantities larger than we would ask anyone to provide. Join us and help offer this meaningful service to our community.
