TUMC Spring Rummage Sale

We welcome donations of furniture, housewares, linens, electronics, holiday items, recreational equipment, books, and toys to be used in the sale. Please no clothing. Proceeds from the sale will support the youth in their mission and fellowship trip opportunities this summer as well as our Playground Renovation Fund.

TUMC Food Pantry to Support Hope's Pantry at Hope Helps Oviedo
Beginning in February donations given to TUMC's Food Pantry will be delivered by volunteers to support and stock the Hope's Pantry at Hope Helps Oviedo rather than made into emergency food bags that are distributed by TUMC's Office Staff.
Hope Helps Oviedo provides a number of services for persons in need and/or experiencing homelessness. Our Food Pantry Leadership and Executive Council believe supporting Hope's Pantry with donations from our church family is a great way for us to be good neighbors and bolster Hope Helps Oviedo in the excellent service they provide.
We will continue to receive food donations on the First Sunday of each month in the shopping carts outside the Sanctuary Building or any Sunday morning or Wednesday evening in the Family Room. We will also post a notice on the Church Office Window directing folks seeking emergency food assistance to Hope Helps Oviedo.
If you have any questions, please connect with Pastor Sarah (email@example.com). Thank you.
Willa Kids and Gravity Youth Volunteers Needed
Willa Kids and Gravity Youth are looking for volunteers to help with Willa Kids and Youth Bible Study on Wednesday nights from 6:00–7:30 p.m. If you are interested, please connect with the Church Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
