Toilet Paper for Trunk or Treat
First UMC will be handing out toilet paper at Trunk or Treat.  Last year we had a five year old excited about receiving TP!.  This is one of those supplies that many of us take for granted, but is economically out of reach for some families.  Food Stamps and other benefits won't pay for paper products.  Let's see if we can bury the pulpit in toilet paper!  A practical gift of love can preach God's love!
