In addition to the outpouring of prayers and actions seen recently during the West Virginia Flood crisis, many agencies request also that people give money. If you choose to donate through the United Methodist Church, 100% of your donation goes to flood relief. You may send a check to WV Conference Treasurer, P O Box 2469, Charleston, WV 25329.
Or, you can give through your local United Methodist congregation. To ensure that monies assist West Virginia flood victims, checks or offering envelopes should carry a memo or be labeled "#935 Flood Relief."
Please give. Every single penny will help Flood Relief.
Sometimes our friends are discharged from being in the hospital almost as soon as we discover they've been admitted!
We cannot squeeze in a visit, much less mail a card before they are back home.
But we can send a greeting - electronically! Our local hospitals offer ecards - just click on the hospital name below, and follow the directions.

Under Ministries, see what Spruce Street groups do around our community.
Spruce Streeters can bring food donations, personal care products, and household cleaning items to the grocery carts in Seekers Hall.
Some foods are packaged as individual cups or snack packs and nutrition bars. These are perfect for the weekend backpack program, which helps feed children who depend on school lunches or meals at child care during the week.
In July, we will begin collecting school supplies, but we can begin purchasing odds and ends any time if we locate backpack stuffers. If you need ideas, lists are sorted by grade. (Even though not mentioned on the lists, children need backpacks and lunch carriers, too!)

Glad you asked. The risk of handgun violence to children and youth is more prevalent in the United States today than in any previous generation.

Greeting people who enter our doors is one of the most important tasks in our church! It sets the tone for visitors, helping them decide if they want to return. Greeters help parents between car and church carrying too many things with too few arms! They also open doors for little ones who can't reach door handles, and those whose wrists no longer can turn door handles.
Our sign-up sheet is on the "Name Tag Table." Please sign up for this important, unsung hero's task!
