Make A Mother’s Day Diaper Drive

church 2017 3 WBUCC will be collecting diapers for our “Make A Mother’s Day” Diaper Drive in honor of mother’s day. We’ll accept disposable and cloth diapers, pull-ups, as well as wipes. We take all sizes in new or opened packages. We’re especially looking for newborn and sizes 4 & 5. (Some people may have leftover diapers their children have outgrown–we take those too as long as they are in new condition.) ROC City Bottoms is a nonprofit community group in Rochester, NY. They work with local organizations (such as Cameron Ministries) & other community agencies to provide diapers for little bottoms in need.

Diapers are not a luxury, and many moms face the choice of buying diapers or buying food. Let’s honor our mothers in need with the gift of diapers.
There will be collection bins at church starting Sunday April 15th through Mother’s Day, and you can drop off donations whenever the church is open. If you can’t get to church but want to donate, or want to be sure the church is open, please contact me (330-2471 texting is best). You can find out more about ROC City Bottoms and the diaper need in Rochester at their website http://www.roccitybottoms.org/

Local Food Cupboards Receive Your Gifts

Funds raised by our 2013 Harvest Bowl were presented to three area food cupboards today. Deacon Claude Lester received on behalf of The Blessing Room in Bloomfield, Don Fox received on behalf of Community Food Pantry of Honeoye, and our own Pastor Corey received on behalf of FISH Food Cupboard in Honeoye Falls.

As Theresa Keyes emphasized in the presentation (you can hear the audio by clicking below), this program has the potential to feed SO MANY people. We encourage you to get to know more about Harvest Bowl, and about the amazing food pantry programs operating in our own back yards. Lean more by contacting us today. Thanks!

Advent Season & Christmas Mission

When I stopped in to church yesterday I was visually reminded how close we are to Christmas… the sheep and donkey that grace our sanctuary during Advent have started their pilgrimage toward the front of the church. Seeing these creatures each year brings such a feeling of innocent, child-like anticipation and appreciation of the season. Happy Advent everyone! Continue reading Advent Season & Christmas Mission
