As members of our Churches complete the AGAPE Christmas Boxes, be mindful that the ultimate location—the MERCI Center in Goldsboro—is not open daily. So, we are thankful that many Churches are willing to serve as drop-off locations.
These Churches include
Beacon District: Windsor UMC
Corridor District: Haw River UMC and Mt. Sylvan UMC
Fairway District: St. Luke’s UMC
Gateway District: Haymount UMC and Campground UMC
Harbor District: Wrightsboro UMC and Epworth UMC in Clinton
Heritage District: Trinity UMC, Louisburg
Sound District: Boxes were collected at sites during July
Please note: Call the Church office or pastor at each Church to see when that drop-off location will be receiving boxes.
Our goal is to have every box at a drop off point by October 1, 2017. Boxes completed after that date will need to be taken to MERCI (there will be a number of work days during October to prepare the boxes for shipment). Volunteers will be needed to help prepare the boxes for shipment. Contact Rev. Bill Haddock to see which days MERCI will be open in October (910.262.3831 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
