5th Sunday – The Church Has Left the Building

Four times each year, there is a fifth Sunday of the month. This year the Evangelism and Outreach Committee wanted to try something new. On each 5th Sunday, the only worship service will be the 8:30 AM service. Following the service, the congregation splits off to serve the community in various areas. Over the year, there will be a number of opportunities for service for every age and ability. The nursery will be available as well during this time.

Numana, Inc is a non-profit 501c3 public charity formed in August 2008 as an international hunger relief organization. We believe that people care deeply for children who are malnourished and are looking for a new option to make a difference.
The Facts:
* Approximately 800 million people go to bed hungry every night
* 25,000 people die each day from hunger or hunger-related diseases.
 
Our core capability is facilitating food packaging events across the nation where hundreds to thousands of volunteers serve two-to-four hour shifts in an assembly line fashion packaging simple, nutritious meals. Our events also benefit the local food banks in the city of each hosted event.
 
Numana meals consist of rice, soy protein, freeze-dried, pinto beans and a blend of vitamins and minerals targeted to help the immune system of malnourished people. These ingredients are measured into bags, weighed, sealed, boxed, and prepared for shipment at our events.
 
The cost of each life-sustaining meal is only 30 cents. This includes all of the ingredients, packaging, administration, and international shipping of the container.
 
Numana events welcome people of all ages and backgrounds. The event provides a hands-on project in which almost any age or skill level can participate. It builds unity in a community, facilitates leadership development and educates people about hunger issues and engages advocacy.
 
So far Numana events have benefited children and families in the United States, Haiti, Vietnam, Malawi, El Salvador, Honduras, Colombia, South Africa, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, and Liberia.
