GPUMC COVID-19 RESPONSE

As COVID-19 cases surge due to the Delta variant, Ginter Park United Methodist Church is now requiring everyone over two years of age whether fully vaccinated or not to wear a mask that covers both the mouth and nose in the church building. Disposable masks will be available to anyone that needs one. We will continue to do what is necessary to protect everyone’s health. Thank you for your cooperation!

FOOD PANTRY:

Your food pantry served an average of 117 households each week during August. Food is distributed on Wednesdays between 10 AM and Noon in our parking lot. Bags are packed on Tuesday mornings between 8 and 10. We receive USDA food through FeedMore, produce from Shalom Farms and we purchase additional food from FeedMore. We are grateful for the volunteers who help each week and we encourage others to consider volunteering in this ministry. Please note that masks covering both mouth and nose are required whenever working inside the building. You can also help by bringing paper grocery bags with handles to church for use by the food pantry.

URGENT NEED:

The Food Pantry urgently needs paper bags with handles. Please drop them off outside the Food Pantry door.

Finance will meet this upcoming Wednesday, September 15th at 6:30 p.m. followed by Church Council at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom. Instructions will be emailed to all committee members.>
