Our November Mission Emphasis is “BE THE SERVICE”

For the third consecutive year, Wesley will join several
other Hopkins County churches by participating in “BE
THE SERVICE.” This is a ministry of the Hopkins County
Christian Alliance (HCCA) and is open to any church wanting
to “Be the Service” to our community residents who
desire a “Thanksgiving Meal in-a-box.”

Once again, it is only $10 per boxed meal to be a
sponsor. Tickets are now available in our office.
Wesley has been very generous the past two years
purchasing/sponsoring 100 meals (or $1000). Our
Outreach Committee heartily endorses this giving

Prior work includes supporting churches passing out
information on “how” they can receive a meal by filling
out a doorknob card placed on their home or apartment,
references from participating churches or ministers, and
assistance from the Community Chest, also a ministry
of the HCCA. Each home or apartment will have
information on where to return this card and request for a
meal. These requests will be gathered by volunteer of the
supporting churches, processed, and then meals will be
delivered the afternoon of Sunday, November 20 (again by
volunteers) to each home or apartment.
First UMC, Sulphur Springs and Shannon Oaks Church
are the two places where boxed meals and turkeys will be
placed for volunteers to deliver. Wesley’s location will be
First UMC.
