Update: Hurricane Relief

Ways to Assist in the Relief Efforts for Hurricane Victims

Help Assemble Hurricane Buckets:
On Wednesday, November 7, we will assemble Hurricane Relief Buckets immediately following Family Night Supper.  We need volunteers to help set up, fill the buckets, load the truck, and clean up when we are done. 

For the latest information on helping to fill the hurricane buckets, click here.

Donate Financially:
If you are unable to physically help fill the buckets purchase and drop off items being collected, you can donate financially.  Your tax-deductible gift will be used to purchase the items that go into the hurricane relief buckets.  The cost of each bucket is $70.  Consider donating the cost to fill as many buckets as you are able to do.  Any gift will help.

You have two options to donate. 

  1. You can drop off or mail a check and notate in the memo “Hurricane Buckets.”
  2. You can donate online. Simply click spumccolumbus.com/pay/bucket/ to make your secure donation online.

Pray:
Continue to pray for those suffering as well as the first responders and relief teams.

Boys v. Girls: Socks Full of Change

SOCKS FULL OF CHANGE FOR UKRAINE
September 16 – November 18

Our precious friends in Ukraine need your help! This fall we will be collecting funds to meet the needs of our friends in Ukraine. Your gift will bless a child in Ukraine this Christmas. The fundraiser is a competition between the girls and boys of our church. Children may bring money in a plastic bag to Sunday school or drop it off in the main office. Please be sure to write your child’s name on the bag, so we may give credit to the appropriate team!  Each week the updated totals will be placed on the “socks” located on the bulletin board across from the elevator.

During the next three months, your child will have the opportunity to learn more about these orphanages and to raise funds to help support this vital mission. This experience can help teach our children about the needs of others and the joy of giving. We hope your family will join us as we work to make our world a better place.

Below you will find a list of easy chores that children can do. We encourage you to have your child “earn” money for missions by completing some of these tasks. Having the opportunity to work for money gives the children more ownership of the fundraiser and makes the whole experience more meaningful. We understand that your child may already do many of the chores listed below on a weekly basis without monetary reward. Simply choose a chore that is not usually part of their daily/weekly routine. Thank you for encouraging your child to help those in need. The seeds we plant in our children today will bear fruit in the future.
