Our little church banks have been shelved because of Covid.
Our Community Assistance Fund has not been shelved.
There are still many people in our community that need assistance with utility bills, doctor bills, gas to get to work, etc. Before Covid, funding for the Community Assistance Fund came from the church banks and offerings left at the communion rail monthly. Those funds have stopped and this
account is low.
Please look for the Community Assistance basket next to the offering plate as you exit the church on Sundays. All change, bills or checks left in this basket will be used to fund the First UMC Community Assistance Fund and help folks right here in Smyth county Virginia.
