Navajo Nation Relief You may have heard that the Navajo Nation has a larger outbreak of COVID-19 per capita than any other area in the country, yet the money provided by the CARES Act is just now trickling in. You can help by contributing – and your gift will go directly to the families who need it. Mail your check to First United Methodist Church of Cortez, PO Box 1016, Cortez, CO 81321. Mark checks on memo line for Navajo COVID Relief Project. Thank you.
Laity Event The Columbia District Lay Development Team prepared a fantastic event, originally scheduled March 14th, but it was canceled in the name of participant safety. Good news! They have condensed the day-long event to a two-hour Zoom meeting for 10am-12pm this Saturday, May 16th. Read more and Register online here.
Get Excited! Here’s something to do with all your free time…the church is in need of re-painting. Pastor Bo has volunteered to prep areas, so that all you need to do is show up and paint. Email him at VHUMCpastor@gmail.com and arrange your time slot.
Giving We have a new method of giving, the mobile app GivePlus. Download the free app and find our church by entering the zip code, 97221, or Vermont Hills United Methodist. If you already use our online giving, enter that username and password, or create a new account. You can give either from your bank account or a credit card. You have the option to add 1 – 2.65% to offset the fees charged to the church.
“A Night at the Opera” Auction News This continues to be a conversation and a challenge to be met. If you have items that you would like to donate, please contact the church office. We’re currently planning to offer them online. We need 20+ to offer before we can set a new date.
Amazon Smile Do you shop online? Amazon will donate a small percentage to VHUMC for every eligible purchase. You must designate Vermont Hills as your charity of choice and start at smile.Amazon.com every visit. Contact the church office with any questions.
Fred Meyer Community Rewards If you shop at Freddy’s, please make sure to link your FM Rewards card with Vermont Hills United Methodist Church (code SY323) and the church will receive a percentage of all your purchases. It costs you nothing and you still receive all your usual benefits.
