Yesterday we loaded 165 flood buckets into the church van, trailer and a SUV and took them to the Conference Offices in Wichita where they joined 1000 other flood buckets that will be heading to UMCOR!

It could not have been done without your help!  Sunday approximately 100 people came to the Wilke Family Life Center and brought flood buckets items, partially filled buckets and then helped fill flood buckets.  When we ran out of items, some people went out and bought more items!  And we had fun filling buckets!

People came from FUMC, other churches, other groups and individuals! You all are wonderful!

There are no words that can fully convey our thanks to you.  Blessings to you all!!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!  We are going to have another Flood Bucket Assembly Event on Sunday, October 15th from 2-5 p.m. in the Narthex.  This should allow the businesses time to restock items!  The items needed are the same. Come help those effected by the hurricanes and have a good time doing it.
