Salvation Army Bell Ringing: Sign Up Now!

Salvation ArmyThe local branch of the Salvation Army has asked Los Altos UMC for volunteers to ring the bell for its Red Kettle Christmas Campaign at the Nob Hill grocery store located on Grant Road in Mountain View. Bell ringing is fun work: bring a friend or your family! Sign up for a two-hour shift (or several shifts!) between November 28 and December 24. Bells and aprons will be provided; remember to dress warmly.

Salvation Army programs in our area include food and nutrition, senior citizen clubs, transitional housing, music and art programs for youth, and worship services.

Invitation to All-Church Family Dinner, April 24

Our monthly All-Church Family Dinners on Sunday evenings have been a huge success! The meals are delicious, and Creekside has come alive with fellowship and celebration. Next up is dinner on April 24 at 6:15pm, when Chef Fred Mayo will prepare a Mexican feast to celebrate the completion of LAUMC’s most recent Mexico house-building trip and to highlight all the areas of service supported by our Bold Service & Social Justice Committee (BSSJ).

The Mexican menu will include favorites such as: carnitas, frijoles, salsas, hibiscus punch, and a dessert of churros and ice cream. BSSJ committee members will be on hand to share stories of LAUMC mission projects, social justice efforts, and agency outreach connections. They will be available to help YOU connect to opportunities for service with our local and global communities!
