Angel Tree Backpacks
Members of the Angel Tree Committee distributed paper angel gift tags in the Narthex Sunday, July 27. Each tag lists a backpack that an Angel Tree youngster will need to start school. As many of you know, Angel Tree is a program that ministers to children and families of the incarcerated population.
The backpack you purchase may be left in the Bear Creek UMC Office Monday, July 28 through Friday, August 1 or in the Narthex on Sunday, August 3.
The Angel Tree Committee will fill backpacks with specific supplies
requested by each child’s school. Monetary donations to help with this expense are greatly appreciated. Checks can be made payable to BCUMC with “Angel Tree” in the memo line and placed in the offering plate or taken to the church office.
If you wish to become a part of our church’s Angel Tree Committee and help with this very rewarding outreach, please contact Betsy Ayers at email@example.com.

Join the United Methodist Men on Sundays, July 27 through September 14, at 5:00pm in Hope 2 for an in-depth understanding of God's commands: The Ten Commandments. Bring your Bibles!
God created men to be leaders. Some men are leaders in their community, organization, corporation and/or nation. Yet, all men were meant to be leaders of their families. As leaders, God commands us to "Obey My Commands and follow My Ways." King Solomon, in all his wisdom, concluded in Ecclesiastes to "Fear God and follow His Commands."
