At Aldersgate we believe that every person has special talents. Some have the talent of voice. Some have talent to play musical instruments. Some have the gift to stand in front of others to make a presentation or to teach. Others have the talent of compassion, cooking or technology. Each talent that a person has is a gift from God. Our inner being is related to our Creator, the giver of life and all our abilities. As we receive these gifts from God, we are directed by Him to develop and use them for the growth of His Kingdom.
What are the talents and skills you believe God is leading you to share? At Aldersgate United Methodist Church there are many opportunities to use your gifts to God’s glory. For more information contact: email@example.com
Aldersgate will host a STOP HUNGER NOW Meal Packing Event on January 29, 2017 immediately after the 5th Sunday Covered Dish Luncheon in the Family Life Center.
Stop Hunger Now gets food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable people, and works to end global hunger in our lifetime. Established in 1998, they have provided over 225 million meals in 74 countries. We would love to package and ship 15,000 meals for hungry people around the world. But we need YOUR HELP to do this! People of all ages can participate in this event.
We will work together to fill and seal bags with dehydrated vegetables, soy protein, vitamins, and rice. When prepared with water these ingredients will provide 6 meals to a hungry family. These simple meals are nutritionally balanced to provide filling, nourishing sustenance for children and adults.
THE COST OF EACH MEAL IS ONLY 29 CENTS. Just imagine: If you skip buying a soft drink for $1.50, you could donate that money to buy 5 meals! Please consider sponsoring several meals. You can make your checks out to Aldersgate UMC, with Stop Hunger Now in the memo line! You may leave your check in the offering plate any Sunday. Help make a difference in someone’s life. Let’s work together to STOP HUNGER NOW!

This ministry provides an opportunity to share God’s love by wearing, making, and sharing necklaces and bracelets made into circles of love. These circles of love will be used in conversation about Jesus, to share the gift of presence and celebrate in God’s creative gift to us, and invite others to spread God’s love by making and sharing the Circles of Love.
