Special Advent Offering 2022

The Missions Team offers the following suggestions for the Advent Giving Opportunities this year:

Habitat for Humanity: Habitat is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry founded on the conviction that every man, women, and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. They build for people in need regardless of race or religion. They welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds.

The Lord’s Table - Sarah Jane Johnson UMC: Sarah Jane Johnson UMC has been serving the needy in our community since 1986 by hosting a family meal every Tuesday. Members of Vestal UMC have faithfully helped serve for many years. Your contributions will help support the purchase of food for these meals.
Haiti Emergency Relief Fund: The Haiti Emergency Relief Fund (HERF) is a grassroots organization in Haiti that are saving lives by helping people on the ground access water, food, and shelter. HERF pays no wages and takes no cuts. Volunteers do all the work, and all the money we collect goes direct to those who need it, starting with women—who are the primary caregivers in every community. The goal of HERF is to help make the people of Haiti reconstruct their lives.

 General Funds: Our church continues our quest to balance our budget this year and your donations will help, not only to balance our year, but to grow our mission and ministry.
