Bubble Baskets for Woodlawn Homes

On Saturday, May 20th members of our church will be distributing
bubble baskets to the residents of Woodlawn Homes. Each household will
receive: a large container laundry detergent,  a box of dryer sheets,
a bottle dish detergent, a bottle of general household cleaner and six
rolls of toilet paper. We did a Spring bubble basket distribution last
year at Woodlawn Homes and it was GREATLY appreciated.
The cost to sponsor a bubble basket is just $20. We will be collecting
sponsorships after services on Sunday, May 7th and Sunday May 14th in
the Communications Hub. This is an easy way to help one of 70 families
in need at Woodlawn Homes. The program is sponsored by the MUMC United
Women in Faith (formerly UMW) and Catalyst Ministry.
If you have questions or would like to help with the distribution
please contact Carol Ryan at (440-974-8014) or you can E-mail her at Thank you for your help!

More Than a Meal

More Than a Meal is a food ministry of MUMC that gives a sense of connection as well as a meal. Many of those who need food are also in need of seeing a smile and hearing a kind word. On the last Saturday of each month, we cook a meal and serve in our Fellowship Hall. You can help cook, clean up, or hand out meals while interacting with guests.
Often a group will get together to work the meal and enjoy fellowship while giving back to the community. The time commitment is four hours. The gift of your time and energy is much needed!

Caring Servants

Who are we? Caring Servants is an extension of the pastoral visitation ministry to the
homebound or chronically ill members of Mentor United Methodist Church. As such, we are not
a committee, and instead focus on the care needs of our faith community as servants of Christ.
What do we do? Caring Servants provide regular contact through cards, calls, visits, or “special
deliveries” on a monthly basis. By using a buddy system and focusing on 4-6 people we “share
the care” on a regular basis in order to keep people connected to their church.
What we are asking? Maybe you have a heart for the needs of others and are able to listen to
people who are increasingly isolated. All we ask is that you prayerfully consider being a part of
our caring team of Jesus followers. Contact Pastor Barb or Bev Lee: or call the church office.
