Please consider helping QUMC raise money for our dear member and friend, Leona, who has suffered a major loss. She is currently homeless due to a fire at her home in Worcester, MA. Luckily, she was unharmed, but she managed to get out with only the clothes on her back and her pocketbook. Most of her belongings have likely been ruined, and she will have to start over in finding a new place to live, items to furnish a new apartment, and even clothes to wear.
We are asking for any help to cover the costs of these items, and to help Leona in her search for a new place to live.
Anyone who knows Leona will tell you how selfless of a person she is. She is an integral part of our church community and of her local community as well. She is a beautiful soul and always willing to help anyone in need, in any capacity she can. She loves to share her gift of cooking with local outreach programs and the church, and she enjoys sharing her love of singing with others as well. She’s a woman who would never ask for help, but as a church community and as her friends, we feel we need to do everything we can to help her get back on her feet.
Any money raised will be used solely for the purpose of buying clothes, furnishings, and to help with apartment applications, security deposits and/or rent for a new apartment. Please consider donating to help this wonderful woman, mother and friend get her life back together. Any amount will help and will be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance.
The link to her GoFundMe is:
to attend QUMC’s Grand Opening of its Soul Fitness Center. There will be 8 sessions and held every other week for 1 hour. It will begin the week of September 25th. Date and time for each workout will be determined by everyone’s availability. The trainer will be Barbara Hunt.
Please fill out this enrollment form and return it to the church office. You can also call the office at 508-755-6237 or send an email to email@example.com. Please let us know by Wednesday, September 14
We are hoping that you (and even your friends too) will want to be part of this spiritually uplifting and life-changing experience. John Wesley said, “Nothing but God can satisfy your soul.” Is God calling you to attend these workout sessions to strengthen your soul in order to equip you to accomplish His will in your life?
It's a boy! Congratulations Heanneah and Menker Casey on your little miracle to be!
Congratulations to Clair and her husband on their beautiful wedding!
It's a boy! Congratulations Angela on your expectant bundle of joy!
