Share Thanksgiving

People are needed to collect banana boxes that are used for packing and delivering the meals for Share Thankgiving. If you can do this please contact David Roderick (david@troyumc.org).


Ministries Unlimited Pantry Needs

Some of the donation from Vacation Bible School!

The food pantry is in need of the following items:

  • mac and cheese
  • canned fruit
  • shampoo
  • deodorant
  • toothpaste

Please put your donations in the mission collection area in the stairwell next to the downstairs entryway. If you come to a service upstairs and can’t make it downstairs, you may leave your donation at the upstairs welcome center.

If every family averaged giving one item per week, the pantry would always be stocked!

If you are not from Troy, please consider donating to your local pantry. Check the mission resources page for information about other local pantries.
