Micah Ministries opportunities 

Drive the van for the Micah Cold Weather Shelter(at Red Roof Inn)
We are searching for drivers on Monday evenings through the winter (November 2021 - March 2022) We have secured our church bus and just need drivers. If you have time to help please let Mike Cotter know ASAP so he can coordinate a schedule. The more we get the easier this SERVICE opportunity will be. If you have driven before you just need to complete the re-authorization form at FUMC. If not, we just need to get you approved and on our insurance approved list which means a copy of your license and form completed...as well as an easy check of your driving. EMAIL MIKE COTTER to get involved! 

HELP AT THE DAY CENTER
Volunteers are needed at the Micah Hospitality Center on Princess Anne Street from 2:30 to 5:00 PM to assist guests waiting to screen for hotel shelter, return phone messages, and sort mail. 
We hope to fill the following dates on Mondays with church volunteers but if another day of the week (Monday through Friday) is better for you please let us know. 
Nov 22; Dec 10; Feb 7,14,21,28; March 7,14,21,28

Christmas Parking information

On Christmas Eve we like to reserve the two Charlotte Street parking lots for guests, the elderly, and those with small children (in carriers or strollers).

We ask that able-bodied members and regular attendees please consider parking on the street or in one of the other lots available on Sundays, see map below:

  • The lot behind Kobler Hall on Charlotte Street, which used to be an old rental property lot.
  • The lot on the church side of Charlotte Street, which is closest to Princess Anne St.
  • The municipal lot on Princess Anne St. between City Hall and the Courthouse.
  • The kitchen lot off of Princess Anne St.

There will be signs at each of those lots.

Thank you for making our church a welcome place for others to experience the birth of Christ this Christmas.
