RIUMA Lenten Project


February 20, 2019

THE RHODE ISLAND UNITED METHODIST ASSOCIATION
LENTEN MISSION PROJECT
 
As an observance of the season of Lent – a time of fasting, repentance, moderation, self-denial and spiritual discipline – RIUMA invites your congregation to join in this mission project to help needy people in our communities.  Since organizations working with the homeless often provide hot showers, we will partner with them by collecting supplies.
 
We are looking for towels (new or gently used) and single-use toiletries (little bottles of shampoo, small bars of soap, lotion, etc., like the ones provided in hotels), and warm socks, a blessing for those out in the cold and on the street.
