On Sunday, June 5, 2011, the United Methodist Church of Mount Kisco will hold its annual Faith in Action Sunday. On this Sunday, in lieu of attending their weekly church services, church members will serve in the local community.
In Mount Kisco this Sunday, the church members will be making on-site repairs, planting a flower bed and performing general cleaning of the Carpenter Avenue Senior Housing Complex’s grounds. The Carpenter Avenue Senior Housing Complex is a 76-unit subsidized living apartment complex that houses low-income families & senior citizens in Mount Kisco. It is located across from Fox Park, Raymond Wall Field and the Mount Kisco Senior Center.
Other volunteers will be assembling health kits to send to the United Methodist Committee of Relief (UMCOR). These kits contain living necessities for those who have lost or been forced from their homes due to human conflict and natural disaster.
The Faith in Action Sunday program has inspired churches to practice what they preach, and hopefully embolden the community at large to do the same, by meeting the needs of their neighbors. “My goal for this event is to give each congregant an opportunity to be a missionary for a day,” explains the Rev. Matt Curry, “I also hope that the community will catch a glimpse of our church’s caring and compassionate spirit.”
This is an outstanding annual program that benefits the Mount Kisco community and the United Methodist Church of Mount Kisco (see link on the right side of this screen) deserves the community’s thanks and support.
