Upcoming Border Ministry Activities

Wasn’t the Grace Notes’ Concert simply THE BEST EVER!?!?!!! 

UC’s Border Ministry remains forever grateful for Grace Notes’ generosity!  We appreciate each person attending this evening of pure enjoyment/music/laughter!  Thanks to those who donated the Mexican Delectables for the Fiesta Reception!

October and November are the months for collecting new toys ($10 value) to be given at Christmas to over 300 children attending Churches in Piedras Negras, Mexico.  The Pastors tell us that this is the only toy many of these delightful children receive at Christmas. 

[Please no battery operated toys nor English books/games]

You may place your toys in the Border Ministry bin in Fellowship Hall!

Short on shopping time?  No problem ~ simply write your check to UCUMC with “Christmas Toys” in the memo line (or hand us cash) and we will shop for you!

Our Border Ministry tables at UCUMC’s Holiday Fair and Garden Ridge’s Marketplace garnered around $1,725 (selling Flavio’s lovely handmade crosses and Aleluya women’s jewelry).   Each dollar will be used by Templo Aleluya’s Pastor Pedro to feed over 30 children a hot lunch 5 days/week, year around.  They also receive a Bible Lesson along with praise & worship time!
