WOW - ANNUAL Backpack Drive!
Did you know that children are often anxious, bullied or made fun of when they don’t have a backpack or school supplies? You can help prevent that from happening by participating in the annual backpack drive organized by EUMC WOW (women of worship) to benefit children who utilize the Eureka Food Pantry and children serviced by the St. Louis Crisis Nursery.
GREAT NEWS: backpacks provided! So just fill them up with school supplies!

Just an update to let you know that we are not planning any mission work for the month of July. We currently have no families waiting for help, like urgently needing a new place to live or or emergency rebuilding.
The work will be transitioning to work more in line with helping people remain in their homes and general repairs (e.g. our last mission in June involved helping people obtain occupancy permits for their mobile homes by repairing roofs and replacing windows). If you know someone in the community struggling and needing help let us know.
In August we may help Eureka Disaster Recovery again depending on what they have planned.
Most likely we will do a mission right in the Eureka United Methodist Church's fellowship hall. The fellowship hall is used as a resource space for many groups in the community (e.g. boy scouts, adult exercise, square dancing, the Eureka football team boosters, Mother's day out, our monthly mission dinners etc etc) and it needs holes repaired in the walls, a fresh coat of paint, ceiling tiles replaced, the bathrooms updated and the floor stripped and a fresh coat of wax applied. We have tentatively planned Aug 11-12 and/or Aug 18-19.
If interested please contact our Local Mission Team Leader, Larry Baner, on his cell phone at (314) 753-9729.
