BOUNTY FOR ALL  2017:   We celebrate another bountiful summer of garden (and wild land) produce and generous donations to our Bounty for All table on Sunday mornings.  With the income from our spring Rhubarb Fest and Bounty for All we have reached our goal of raising $600 to support our Angola pastor for one year!  Thank you to all who provided nature’s bounty each week, and to all who “shopped” at the table for fresh vegetables and fruit.  The total raised from Bounty for All is $392.60.  Our Angola pastor support is $50/month.

CANYON COMMUNITY DINNER (Sept 28):  These free dinners are located in the Hungry Horse Elementary School and begin at 5:30pm. 

A CALL FOR KITSWant to DO something to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey and the fires here in the West?  Jesus calls us to reach out to our neighbors, and offer HOPE, especially in times of need.  The United Methodist Church has connections to make that possible.  There is a great need for Cleaning Buckets and Health Kits.  The following is a list of items needed:

1 5-Gallon bucket with resealable lid (Buckets from fast-food restaurants or bakeries can be used if washed and cleaned / Do not use buckets that have stored chemicals such as paint or pool cleaner / Advertisements on the outside are acceptable) · Liquid laundry detergent (One 50-oz. or two 25-oz. bottle(s) only) · Liquid household cleaner (12‐16 oz. liquid cleaner that can be mixed with water /  No spray cleaners) · Dish soap (16-28 oz. bottle, any brand) · 50 Clothespins · Clothesline (One 100-ft. or two 50-ft. lines / Cotton or plastic) · 7 Sponges (No cellulose sponges due to mold issues / Remove from packaging · 24-Roll heavy-duty trash bags (33-45 gallon sizes / Remove from the box) · 18 Cleaning wipes (Handi-wipes or reusable wipes / No terry cleaning towels / Remove from packaging) · 1 Can air freshener (Aerosol or pump) · 1 Insect-repellent spray (6-14 oz. aerosol or spray pump with protective cover) · 2 Pairs kitchen dish washing gloves (Should be durable enough for multiple uses / Remove from packaging) · 1 Pair work gloves (All Cotton / All Leather / Cotton with Leather Palm) · 5 Scouring pads (Remove from wrapper / No stainless steel, Brillo pads or SOS pads and nothing with soap built in) · 1 Scrub brush (Plastic or wood handle) · 5 Dust masks    Important Notes:   All items must be new except for the actual bucket and lid.  All cleaning agents must be liquid and in plastic containers. No powders, please.  If you cannot find the requested size of a liquid item, use a smaller size. Including larger sizes of any item will prevent the lid from sealing.  

Please bring any of the above items into the church no later than October 1.  Pastor Dawn will take them with her to Fairmont and from there someone will deliver them to the UMCOR West Depot in Salt Lake City.  You can also make an online donation towards kit supplies on the UMCOR website (www.umcor.org) OR write a check to the church (CFUMC with Cleaning kit in the memo line).


CROP Walk:  The 9th annual CROP Walk will be held on Sunday, October 8th at Marantette Park.  Registration will begin at 1:00 PM and then the walk at 1:30 PM.  There will be games and face painting for the kids and a BBQ after the walk.  Our goal this year is to raise $6,000.  25% of the money raised will go right here in our community to support the Canyon Community Dinners Project which feeds 60 to 80 people each month.  This is a community event; so invite your friends and family to participate.   You can participate by walking and getting sponsors, getting a team together for the walk, or by making a donation either online at: http://www.crophungerwalk.org/columbiafallsmt  or  by check made payable to CWS, memo line CFCROP.  Team packets and envelopes will be available on the Connection Board in Fellowship Hall.
