Drive-Thru Food Drive
Saturday, April 30th, 9-11 AM
March and April the BHCA and BHUMC are collecting items to build personal hygiene kits for a Make A Difference Day project. At the MADD event, volunteers will be putting together hygiene kits and delivering them to organizations to distribute to people in need. Our goal is to put together 500 kits!
This month we will be collecting the following items:
New or unused, full size or travel size:
- Shampoo & Conditioner
- Body or Face Wash
- Tampons (these items are often overlooked. Tampons are expensive and NECESSARY. Pads are welcomed, but tampons are preferred).
- Toothbrushes & Toothpaste
United Methodists and others wishing to provide humanitarian assistance to the Ukrainian people in the wake of the Russian invasion of their country may contribute to Advance #982450, UMCOR International Disaster Response and Recovery. This fund will provide direct assistance to those in Ukraine as well as assistance to Ukrainians fleeing to neighboring countries.
Gifts to support the people of Ukraine can be made in the following ways:
- Online at https://umcmission.org/advance-project/982450
- By toll-free telephone: 888-252-6174
- By check with “Advance #982450-Ukraine” written on the memo line, either mailed and addressed to Global Ministries/UMCOR, GPO, P.O. Box 9068, New York, NY, 10087-9068 or given at or through any United Methodist church
One hundred percent of all Advance contributions go to the designated cause.
The United Methodist community in Ukraine, though quite small, is actively engaged in assisting neighbors in need. Global Ministries is in touch with the church’s leadership as well as with church leaders in countries welcoming those who are fleeing from violence in Ukraine.
How can we pray with you today?
Share your praises, joys, concerns, illnesses and gratitude so we can pray collectively with you! Contact the church office with your requests!
Dear God, thank you for your promise always to remain close to us. Help us always remain faithful to you. Amen.
(From the Upper Room March-April 2022)
We would like to take this time to remember our commitment to "Do No Harm" in all we do here at BHUMC.
As of March 4th, our Covid Protocols will align with the mandates and recommendations of the Long Beach City Health Department.
We will continue to hold outdoor worship, but masks will now be optional in both indoor and outdoor settings, as will social distancing among households. Our facility users will be asked to meet or exceed the minimum requirements for masks and vaccines for their industry.
We recommend that everyone bring a mask and wear them when interacting closely with any vulnerable person, indoors or outdoors.
