Opportunities for the members of the congregation to perform duties or services for others. These may be within First Church itself, within the Elmhurst community, within the UMC’s missions, as well as throughout the world in response to global needs and disasters.
The Youth Group’s Cookout for a Cause on September 23 was a great success. Thanks to the hard work of our young people and the support of our congregation, $709 was raised for Bridge Communities. And everyone enjoyed the barbecue on the church lawn.
NOTE: The next First Church event to support Bridge Communities will be Sleep Out Saturday on November 3, 2018. The goal is to raise a total of $1500.
If you missed the Cookout, you can donate directly to Bridge Communities on the Elmhurst First United Methodist Church Youth Group page. Here’s the Link:
Lord, you have been our dwelling-place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. Psalm 90:1-2
