KROGER COMMUNITY REWARDS PROGRAM

Register your Kroger Plus Card online at www.kroger.com/communityrewards and Kroger will give SFUMC a portion of their profits quarterly to use in our Missions program.  SFUMC NPO #57217.  Can't register online?  Call 1-800-331-5304 to register your Kroger Plus Card.

Re-enrollment can be done at any time. Each participant currently signed up to support SFUMC through the Kroger program is required to re-enroll his/her Kroger Plus card on an annual basis through the Kroger.com website. This is also the perfect time for anyone who has not done so to register their Kroger Plus card and link it to Smyrna First United Methodist Church. All proceeds from this program go directly into Missions outreach.


Local Mission Opportunity

The Mission Team in conjunction with the UMW Sunshine Circle is continuing the backpack feeding program for Smyrna Elementary School children who are “food insecure.” Food insecure means children, who participate in the free or reduced price lunch program, including homeless children, may or may not have anything to eat on weekends. Gallon size food bags contain 2 breakfast items, 2 lunch/dinner items, 2 snacks, and 2 drinks, and are sent home in the children’s backpacks each weekend.

Sunshine Circle members administer this church outreach program by serving as liaison with the school guidance counselor, purchasing food, assembling food bags monthly, and delivering food bags weekly to the school.

We need your help! Please consider financially “sponsoring” a child for the 2015-2016 school year. The cost per child is approximately $200. Last school year, the number of children receiving food bags increased from 32 in August to 54 by May. There is great need – every contribution helps. To those of you who have been supporting this program with monthly or annual contributions, thank you!! We pray you will be able to continue giving.

If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Martin. Thanks!
