Announcements and Upcoming Events  

Irma Assistance Update

Thank you so much to everyone who has already brought items to the church Sunday! We have a van load ready to go and help our conference as soon as possible. This Sunday we collected cases of water, gatorade/powerade, shelf-stable lunches and snacks, hygiene kits, flood buckets, and cleaning supplies. THANK YOU!!

Because the damage was extensive in some areas, we are going to set up long-term disaster relief through the Florida Conference of the UMC.

Here are the items we are collecting right now:

  • Unopened bottle water- in any size
  • Prepackaged unperishable food items
  • Unopened snacks that do not require refrigeration (single or multi pack)
  • Batteries
  • Disposable plates
  • Disposable Cups
  • Hand wipes
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Diapers
  • Baby wipes
  • Baby food
  • Bug spray
  • Sunscreen
  • Gallon Ziploc bags
  • Black contractors trash bags
  • Basic First Aid Kits
  • Tarps

We know that many of you have offered other items (like clothing and furniture), but we are not able to accept these items at this time. We will update this list as the needs change.

ALSO - your cash contributions help immensely - you may give online using the links below or through our church on Sunday mornings. 100% of either choice below is used for direct aid. The Florida Fund is through the conference and will go for immediate relief and things that UMCOR cannot help with.



Historic Sanctuary Steps and Ramp Renovation

The entry steps and ramp for the historic sanctuary are in disrepair and need renovation. We would like to complete the project before the chicken pilau in November. If you would like to help with the cost, please make an earmarked contribution in the regular Sunday offering.

Charge Conference

Will be Saturday, September 30th, at 9:30am, at First Monticello UMC. We will be meeting with First Monticello, Wacissa/Sardis, Waukeenah/Mt. Lebanon, and Miccosukee. There will be a worship service, followed by a brief business period, all are invited to attend.

Prayer Chain

If you are interested in being on a prayer chain, or have a prayer request, please contact Neva Holland.

Emergency Kits for Refuge House

Supplies needed, most pressing needs are for toothpaste, mouthwash, and socks.Each kit contains travel size toothpaste, body lotion, shampoo and conditioner, mouthwash, toothbrush, comb, and low cut socks used as slippers.  Chaires UMW needs your donations to build the kits. Give items or money to Jean Ingram or Margaret Boyette (make checks payable to Chaires United Methodist Women)


Please remember the people that ECHO serves. They are currently in need of non-perishable food items and fans. There are collection boxes at the rear of the church. For more information on what ECHO needs click here (pdf). Neva Holland assisted by Barbara Palmer is the project coordinator. If you would like to help, contact Neva.
