Annual Pledge Drive

We are into the second month of our annual Pledge Drive!  There are Pledge Packets at the end of the pews and we would like you to take the time to prayerfully consider what you intend to do for our Douglas Community United Methodist Church next year.  Remember, it is not just about the money. The money is necessary but in the United Methodist tradition, we advocate discipleship through presence, prayers, gifts, and witness.

Thank you in advance for your radical generosity!

The Widowed Persons Program and Hospice & Home Care of Juneau are pleased to announce a special public program on “Grief, Loss & the Holidays” to be held on Tuesday, November 13th in the Community Room at Fireweed Place (415 Willoughby Avenue) at 5:30 pm.  This is a free public event.

 

This program is NOT limited to widows/widowers, but is for ALL types of losses.  It will offer suggestions on how to navigate through the holiday season and participants will learn how to create new traditions that pay tribute to the memory of their loved one.  The Widowed Persons Program and Hospice & Home Care of Juneau wish to extend a special invitation to all those who have had a loss. Light Refreshments will be served.


For further information on this special event or the Widowed Persons Program, please contact Sue Nielsen (suen@gci.net) at 586-6424 or Sandy DeLong at 209-2307.

Thanksgiving Day

Bring a dish to share, if you can. There will be plenty of delicious food!  Enjoy a roaring fire, play games with friends, go for a walk at the camp or a walk to the beach, maybe even see whales!

The lodge will be open by 10 A.M. and we’ll start serving Thanksgiving Dinner at about 1:30 P.M.

The camp is located at 27500 Glacier Highway, about Mile 28, on the right, just before Eagle Beach State Park. Let us know if you need a ride!

Douglas Community UMC Food Pantry Needs

 

Food Pantry Hours!

Wednesdays:  2:00 to 4:00 P.M.

 

Fridays:  2:00 to 4:00 P.M.

 

Based on the needs of our current clients, we have noticed that some of what we’ve been stocking is not usable because our clients do not have access to kitchen facilities, etc.  They are homeless and are unable to heat or cook food. We have revised our needs lists to reflect these changes, based on their requests.

 

  • Canned protein: (Tuna, Spam, Chicken, Turkey, salmon, etc. Pouches work well, too.)
  • Canned meals (Beef Stew, Spaghetti, Ravioli, mac and cheese; the pop-top cans work the best)
  • Peanut Butter (small jars)
  • Canned soup
  • Canned Beans
  • Crackers
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned fruits & applesauce
  • Dry Cereal & Packets of Oatmeal
  • Milk (canned & dry)
  • Ramen noodles
  • Granola Bars
  • Small jars of Mayonnaise (to go with the tuna)
  • Bread


The Southeast Food Bank, where we shop weekly, is very low on food and we will need supplement elsewhere.  Any and all donations of food are appreciated; we cannot accept or distribute food that has expired or food that has been opened or home-canned or preserved.   

If you are unable to shop, monetary donations are accepted, as well.  Thanks in advance for your generosity!
