Genesis is beginning a new mission in the Cary area by partnering with The Carying Place. This organization serves the needy in our area by helping them transition from homelessness to independant living. Watch this space for updates and needs.
Become a Pen Pal! Write a note or card to your Chatham Commons pen pal once a month to encourage them! Any age may participate. Once you sign up, you will be assigned a name. Sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0F49ACAA23A57-chatham.
Volunteers Needed! Dorcas Ministries is dependent on Genesis UMC Volunteers to keep the food pantry open on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Saturdays. Please consider volunteering once or twice a month. You will work in the pantry with 2-3 others to sort food and greet shoppers. Shoppers do not enter the pantry. Dorcas has prepared a 12 minute video below that shows responsibilities of a volunteer and safety measures in place during the pandemic. Sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0f49acaa23a57-saturday . Questions? Contact Miss Inglis, email@example.com.
