Kits for Conference - The VA Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church is collecting relief kits to replenish the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) supply. These kits are used for disaster relief and emergencies. All church members are asked to consider donating a kit (or a piece of a kit). Washington Farm will focus on two types that are requested :

Cleaning Buckets:  Many items make up this relief kit (We have split it up into pieces which we will assemble later. )  If you would like to contribute, please select an item (or items) to purchase from the “Kits for Conference” tree on the Friendship Patio.

Health Kits (provide an entire kit):  Each kit should contain the following:

  • 1 hand towel (15”x25” up to 17”x27
  • 1 washcloth
  • 1 comb (large and sturdy, not pocket-sized)
  • 1 metal nail file or fingernail clippers (no emery boards or toenail clippers)
  • 1 bath-sized bar of soap (3 oz. and up)
  • 1 toothbrush (single brushes only in original wrapper, no child-size brushes. No toothpaste needed—it will be purchased.)
  • 6 adhesive plastic strip sterile bandages (Band-Aids)
  • $1 for toothpaste.
  • Please seal all items in a 1-gallon plastic bag. 

The VA Annual Conference comes up June 19-21, and the kits will be delivered there. A collection box will be in the narthex starting in May.    

Washington Farm Wind Ensemble - Do you play (or have you ever played) an instrument?  If so, we need you in the Wind Ensemble! We are gearing up to play in worship on May 31st, with rehearsals on May 17th and 24th.  All ages and levels are welcome (2 or more years of experience on an instrument are recommended, but we are flexible!) The music can be tailored to any level.  Haven’t played in a while?  Don’t worry, it will quickly come   back with practice.  Need an instrument? We may be able to provide one.  Please contact Eileen Fraedrich at child_education.wfumc@verizon.net for further information.
