Update on Shoeboxes

The shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child were picked up this week. Our goal was 75 shoeboxes. We had 77! Thanks to all who provided a shoebox for the all the children of the world who are waiting for your gift of love. Keep praying for your box to lead a child to Christ.

Sunday, December 5, we will receive a Special Offering for the Methodist Children’s Home. We hope you will prayerfully consider giving to this very special ministry. 


“I was in prison and you came to visit me.” - Matthew 25:36 
Mississippi prisons have been closed since March of 2020. Consequently, inmates have not had family visits or volunteer programs like Kairos in over a year and a half. 
Please take advantage of this opportunity to send the love of Christ to an inmate at Central Mississippi Correctional Facility. You will find a list of acceptable items attached. These items will be distributed to the inmates for Christmas. You may drop them off in the Fellowship Hall by December 1st. Note that this year we are allowed to include letters and/or Christmas cards. 

Christmas Bags consist of:  One pair of white crew socks.  30 pieces of hard candy individually wrapped and places in a smaller ziplock bag.  Clear shampoo with tape over the top to keep it from spilling.  Clear deodorant.  Females can have three small nonmetallic hair ornaments.  A Christmas card or note from the group or church that created the bag. Examples of deodorants and shampoo can be found in the fellowship hall beside the Kairos box.
For more information, contact Allison Hughes (662-571-4964).
Poinsettias will be here for Christmas. The Children and Youth will be reaching out to sell poinsettias for decorating the Church Sanctuary for Christmas, as well as in honor and memory of loved ones. This year we will only be able to offer Red and Pink. White will NOT be available due to circumstances the distributor has encountered. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Special Called Charge Conference
Dr. Stephen Cook, our district superintendent, has called a Special Charge Conference for every church in the West Jackson District. Our Charge Conference will be via Zoom on Monday, November 22, at 5 p.m.
The purpose of this meeting is to empower our Trustees to deal with the Boy Scouts bankruptcy case. As you are likely aware, the Boy Scouts of America recently declared bankruptcy and have negotiated a settlement with their plaintiffs from numerous sexual abuse lawsuits. However, this settlement did not include churches and other chartering organizations. This may leave churches liable to future lawsuit.
The larger United Methodist Church and leaders of our Mississippi Annual Conference have been working to resolve this problem. At this Charge Conference, we will be given an update on the matter and asked to vote on the following resolution:
We, the First United Methodist Church of Yazoo City, give authority to our local church Board of Trustees to review the recommendation of United Methodist lawyers in conjunction with Annual Conference leadership and the Council of Bishops as to whether or not to approve the BSA plan of reorganization, and to vote on the plan on behalf of the church. The designee from your local church’s Board of Trustees shall be determined by your local church trustees, and is further empowered to execute the plan ballot document.
Again, our meeting will be Monday, November 22, at 5 p.m., along with a group of several other churches. To attend you will need to have or obtain a free Zoom account (click here to get one:
You will also then need to register for the Zoom meeting by clicking on the link above (and repeated below) so that you will be able to vote on the resolution. You must register with the same email address you use with your Zoom account. Otherwise, it will not let you register. After you have registered for the meeting, you will be given a working link for the Zoom meeting itself.
We will need at least 3 or 4 of our church members and church leadership to attend this meeting so that the vote will be valid. Please keep this meeting and all those affected in your prayers. Thank you in advance for your help.
