SUNDAY, JULY 25, 2021


July has certainly flown by! Can you believe “Christmas in July” is this Sunday? If you have items to donate to The Methodist Home for Children, we will be having a drive-thru drop-off this Saturday from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. in addition to the ability to drop your donation by the office, weekdays from 9:00 to 1:00 p.m.


If you don’t have time to shop, you can make a monetary donation to Benson Memorial UMC and write “Christmas in July” in the memo line. Monetary donations can be made by check or online. Though we would like to have donations before Sunday so we can display them for this Sunday's worship service, donations can be brought to church on Sunday.


Thank you all for your support of the Methodist Home for Children!
