BWUMC is a reconciling CONGREGATION
We are a people on a journey together with God and with one another to renew God’s spirit in us, to reflect Jesus and his love to one another, and to return God’s blessings to the hurting world. On this journey we celebrate all persons as God’s sacred and precious children regardless of age, race, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic status, mental and physical abilities and welcome them into the full participation in the life of this beloved community. We invite all to this journey to live justly, to love boundlessly, and to walk humbly with God and with all, one day at a time.

BWUMC Summer Mission
School Supplies for
Hattie B. Cooper Community Center After School Program
30 children aged 7 to 12 attend the Afterschool Program at Hattie B. Cooper Community Center in Roxbury. There are also 20 children aged 4 to 5 in the entering Kindergarden. Our summer mission is to collect $$ and items for a gift of back-to-school supplies for each child.
Checks can be made out to BWUMC with ‘school supplies’ in the memo line. Checks may be put in the collection plate or mailed to the church.
Items: Please adhere to the list below. We would like to give the children in each group the same or similar items. A box for donations is in the Narthex. LAST COLLECTION DAY IS SUNDAY AUGUST 6TH. We will have a shopper to purchase items that are missing. If you can’t or don’t want to shop please make a $$ donation to supply and fill the packs. Any surplus will be boxed for the school to distribute as needed.
