First UMC Melrose MA:  We are currently at $4,350 (almost half-way to our ambitious goal).  The Sunday School children raised $1200 over Christmas by making ornaments (clear plastic balls with bits of colored “net” inside). They hung on the sanctuary Christmas tree and anyone who made a $10 donation to INM could take one home. The Sunday School kids have decorated coin card ($10 worth of quarters) as Valentines for Africa.  The children are asking people in the congregation to give them to family and friends to be filled and then returned when full.
