Ready to start your Christmas shopping?
Surprise someone with a Bear Creek UMC baseball cap. Accented with the BCUMC logo, the comfy, royal blue cap sports an adjustable, low-profile style with a ponytail opening. Caps are available for $15 each in the Bear Creek UMC Office.
The angels are here!
This Christmas season, Bear Creek UMC will once again reach out to connect with more than 100 Angel Tree children and their caregivers. Your help is needed as we share God's love, our love, and the love of their incarcerated parent with each one of the children.
The Angel Christmas Tree is in the Sanctuary Narthex Sunday, November 23, and will also be here the following Sunday, November 30. The tree is filled with angels that request two gifts for each child. Every Angel Tree youngster will receive a clothing gift and a toy or other fun present. These gifts should be in the $20-$25 price range.
In addition to two gifts, each child and caregiver will also receive a stuffed stocking as a gift from our church. There will be angels on the tree requesting stocking stuffers, as well as angels requesting gift cards for each family.
Gifts may be left in the Narthex on Sunday, November 30, or Sunday, December 7. Gifts may also be dropped by the church office November 24 to December 5. All gifts, stocking stuffers, and gift cards must be turned in by Sunday, December 7.
As always, your help with this very rewarding outreach mission is appreciated. If you would prefer to make a monetary donation, please make checks payable to BCUMC with "Angel Tree" in the memo line.
Men, don’t miss the final UMM “Last Monday” of 2014!
Dr. Vernus Swisher, chief executive officer of Career & Recovery Resources, Inc. (CRR), will provide an entertaining and compelling program at UMM’s “Last Monday” dinner Monday, November 24. The kitchen opens at 6:45pm in the Fellowship Hall. All men are invited to come and bring a friend.
The distinguished guest speaker will share his great faith and inspire men of Bear Creek UMC to celebrate the Lord and his work in our com-munity. After retiring from management at Foley’s, Dr. Swisher created CRR to help individuals identify and overcome barriers to employment. Today CRR empowers disadvantaged job seekers with guidance, support, training, and job placement assistance.
The organization’s scope includes work with the US Veterans Administration, for which CRR has received wide acclaim from veterans’ fami-lies. Meet Dr. Swisher and you will understand where CRR generates that confidence, encouragement and positive spirit!
Please RSVP to Harry Thomson at email@example.com so UMM’s cooking team, led by Bill Grosse, can have a meal for you. A con-tribution of $6 is appreciated to cover the cost of the food.
