Juarez Mission Trip with Operacion Abrigo
Continuing a 3-decade tradition, UPUMC youth, families, and sponsors partner with Operación Abrigo to build homes and provide food for families and children in need in Juarez, Mexico. For those families unable to provide for themselves a safe shelter, we build a home that will keep them safe for generations to come. Led by Alan Hamilton, Rev. Ricky Harrison, and Rev. Jose Luis Portillo, our group will fly out from Love Field on March 9 to spend 3 days working to build cinderblock homes and joining in fellowship with residents. The cost of the trip is $200/person (covers meals, dorm lodging, and ground transportation) plus airfare. Click here for the full details of the mission trip, and contact Alan Hamilton or Nate Stinchcomb with additional questions or to register.
Christ's Foundry Bread Ministry
Each Saturday, Christ's Foundry distributes bread and bakery goods to neighbors in need. If you would like to volunteer to go to their two partner stores, pick up the bread and bakery goods (stores will have them ready), and deliver them to Christ's Foundry, check out their Sign-Up Genius to pick a day that works for you. Bread will be ready to be picked up at 9 AM each Saturday morning and is to then be delivered to Christ's Foundry by 10 AM for distribution.
Christ's Foundry Food Pantry
On the first Tuesday of every month, from 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM, you can help sort and prepare family bags that help many Christ's Foundry families. Tasks include unloading food and sorting and loading it into individual family food bags. This is a great opportunity to teach younger children how to help in this service and makes a great family activity! It does involve some physical activity of lifting and moving cases of food.
Piano and Guitar Lessons
Christ's Foundry is looking for teachers who can provide basic piano and guitar lessons for youth beginners. Ideally, it will be a 10-week commitment on Wednesdays from 5:30 - 6:15 PM. If you would like to volunteer or want more information, please contact Rev. Amy Spaur.
