Oak Ridge Christmas Parade: Socks and Mittens Needed

The Oak Ridge Christmas Parade is coming up on December 12, 2020 and we have big plans.

We are collecting new SOCKS (solid colors/ variety of sizes) and new MITTENS (solid colors/ variety of sizes) to distribute with the Christmas candy this year. The children and youth ministries have a goal of 1,000 pairs of each.

Get Ready for Advent

Pastor Donna shared a lesson this week on the season of Advent, it's meaning in the life of the church, and what we can do to prepare.

UMCOR Bucket Supplies Urgently Needed

The Flood Bucket kits that help areas hard hit by storm damage have hit rock bottom in the face of record storms and the inability of church members to gather to assemble new ones. Now that we can gather in small numbers, it’s feasible to try to help fill this need. Hygiene Kits are also needed to meet future demands. Instructions for assembling kits are provided by UMCOR. Each cleaning kit is valued at $75. Donations may be made to Kern to supply these buckets.
