Bucket of Hope

Each week we collect items at our Sunday service to give to local groups serving people in our area who could use a little help. 

Our Bucket of Hope for January through March is The Nest Empowerment Project

Our Bucket of Hope through March is The Nest Empowerment Center Nest Empowerment Students

The Nest is a safe, after-school haven that offers basic needs, counseling, academic and enrichment for Georgetown high school students who are homeless, at-risk, or living in transition.  They have a long list of needs to support these kids. 

Items needed:
Granola bars, Peanut butter crackers, Trail mix, Fruit snacks, Cans of soup, Chef-boy-r-Dee products (ravioli, spaghetti, etc), Ramen noodles, Mac and Cheese, Boxes of hot chocolate.

We now have an ongoing collection for the Ronald McDonald House. 
 
You can help support the Ronald McDonald House by collecting the little tabs you pull to open soda, soup or other aluminum cans. The funds generated from recycling these aluminum gems help offset the House’s expenses such as their electric bill. There is a jar on the Bucket of Hope table in the back of the Sanctuary to deposit your tabs.

Tithing Update

Unity Church of Georgetown is a tithing church. We believe in the principle of tithing and have asked our Benevolence Committee to make recommendations as to which organizations we should take into consideration when allocating our church’s monthly tithes.

The Benevolence Committee recommended to the Board to tithe to the following organizations: Unity Worldwide Ministries, Silent Unity, Food for Friends, HOPE Alliance, and The Caring Place. We will make year-end contributions to Reindeer Run and Operation Warm.
