Through Jesus Christ, Methodist Children's Homes bring hope and healing to hurting children in Mississippi. With the aid of the Methodist churches and the MS Conference, MCH is following the calling laid out in Matthew 25:31-46 to care for those in need. This Little Light of Mine Special Offering is an opportunity for all Methodist churches across the state to come together in prayer and support of the most vulnerable children in our state. This Sunday, there will be special offering envelopes in your church bulletins if you would like to contribute. 
 
 
 
Kairos Prison Ministry 
I was at Central Mississippi Correctional Facility a few weeks ago and the inmates were talking about the shampoo they received for Christmas the previous year. They said they they made the shampoo last 6 months. These women truly appreciate and look forward to the small gifts they receive at Christmas. If you would like to help this year, please place your items in the box in the Fellowship Hall:
White crew socks
Individually wrapped hard candy
Clear shampoo
Clear deodorant
Small non-metallic hair ornaments
Please call if you have any questions. Please call, Allison Hughes (662)-571-4964
 
 
 

ALTERNATIVE SCHOOL MINISTRY UPDATE

Some of you may not know, but this past October a group of volunteers from FUMC of Yazoo City, St. Stephen's United Methodist, and Louise United Methodist began a journey! We joined with Rev. Eddie Spencer of Galloway United Methodist and his inner city ministry for youth to begin a ministry on anger management in the Alternative School of the Yazoo City Public School District. We also have full support of Dr. Darron Edwards, Yazoo City Superintendent of Education. 

For the last 9 Wednesdays, we have met with 18-24 middle school and high school students discussing Rev. Spencer's book, "Putting Out The FIRE". We have definitely experienced God intervening with us to form relationships with these scholars. 

We have not asked for any monetary support for this ministry thus far, as we have been blessed with very generous volunteers! As we break for Christmas on Wednesday, December 13, we will have a small Christmas party for the students, teachers, and administration. We would like to give Christmas "happy bags" to those involved! We estimate around 30 people. If you would like to participate in this ministry by supplying any of the following items, it would be greatly appreciated. OR if you are interested in becoming a part of this ministry team, we will start back on January 5, 2018.
