QuiltersMCC Quilters
The MCC Quilters turn donated fabrics into warm and beautiful quilts which are shipped to Lutheran World Relief (LWR) warehouses for ultimate distribution worldwide. The quilts we make in the church basement the first Tuesday of every month are given (never sold!) to people who have lost their household goods due to calamity and without regard to race, creed, nationality or politics. During the last five years, over 2 million such quilts were distributed by LWR and 570 of them were made right here! By, the way, these are not the hand-stitched quilts like the Amish are famous for, but they are made with love. If you'd like to help, here's how you can get involved:

* Drop off fabrics, sheets, tablecloths, curtains at church any time. About the only cloth we CAN'T use are slippery dress goods, terry, fiberglass and T-shirt knits.

* Join us from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. the 1st Tuesday in the church basement. Bring a sack lunch if you're able to stay the whole time. No equipment or prior skills needed.

* If you'd rather sew at home at your own schedule, just call to let Hildy McGown (238-8670) know of your interest and she'll get you started on this rewarding project.

Food Drive for Food Pantry
First Sunday of Every Month
Please remember to make a special effort to bring food for the pantry on the first Sunday of every month. Suggested items include canned goods (fruit, vegetables, tuna, beef stew, fruit juice, etc.) peanut butter, jelly, cereal. We can especially use any large grocery bags. Please do not put pet food in with donation for the Lussier Food Pantry.
We do not have facilities to handle fresh produce. For those who prefer to donate money, checks can be made out to the Lussier Community Education Center, designated for the pantry. Dobbin McNatt, Coordinator

The Road Home
Formerly known as Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN)
MCC volunteers team up with members of Orchard Ridge United Church of Christ and Madison Mennonite Church to provide shelter, food and hospitality for homeless families through The Road Home’s Interfaith Hospitality Network program. The Road Home is an organization that serves local homeless families with children in collaboration with more than 50 local faith communities. More information can be found at www.trhome.org.

MCC volunteers share meals with the families, play with the families’ children, donate supplies and food to The Road Home and serve as overnight hosts. MCC also supports The Road Home with financial gifts, which helps The Road Home staff provide the families with individual case management services such as employment counseling, assistance in obtaining permanent housing, and classes in parenting skills and personal finance.

Please consider volunteering as a great way to help homeless families in need and meet others at MCC. This ministry is another great example of the partnership between our two congregations at the MCC.
