Help Keep Navarre Beach Clean
Join the Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center in their efforts to keep our beaches clean and safe for the sea turtles. God calls us to care for Creation. One way we can do that locally is by caring for our beaches and the sea turtles who are endangered.
The Beach Clean up, or Monthly Trash-Bash, is a great way to help our community and is family friendly. Children of all ages and come and pick up trash on the beach. You will go in teams down the beach, starting at the Pier.
- Bring gloves and anything you want to use to pick up the trash. They will provide the trash bags.
- Be sure to bring water with you as well. Dress appropriately depending on the weather.
- Meet at Meet at Navarre Beach public parking, near pier. If you have questions, you can contact the event coordinator through their Facebook event or call her at 850.499.6774.
Thank you for making a different in our community and for God's creation!

Donate Blood. Save a Life.
Join us from 9:00a - 1:30p, Sunday before and after all worship services. All donors will receive a wellness checkup including blood pressure, temperature, iron count and cholesterol screening! Please stop by, you just might save a life!
Tips for a Successful Blood Donation:
- Maintain a healthy iron level in your diet by eating iron rich foods, such as red meat, fish, poultry, beans, spinach, iron-fortified cereals, and raisins.
- Get a good night's sleep.
- Drink an extra 16 oz. of water or nonalcoholic fluids before the donation.
- Eat a healthy meal before your donation. Avoid fatty foods, such as hamburgers, fries or ice cream before donating. (Fatty foods can affect the tests we do on your blood. If there is too much fat in your blood, your donation cannot be tested for infectious diseases and the blood will not be used for transfusion.)
- If you are a platelet donor, remember that your system must be free of aspirin for two days prior to donation.
- Remember to bring your donor card, driver's license or two other forms of ID.
- Wear clothing with sleeves that can be raised above the elbow.
- Let the person taking your blood know if you have a preferred arm and show them any good veins that have been used successfully in the past to draw blood.
- Relax, listen to music, talk to other donors or read during the donation process.
- Take the time to enjoy a snack and a drink in the refreshments area immediately after donating.

Angel Tree Roots
The Angel Tree is a unique program that started in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1979. It involves the community in a direct way allowing them to become personally involved by sharing with those less fortunate in their community. The program provides gifts of new clothing and toys to thousands of children who otherwise might not have anything for Christmas.
How You Can Help
Angel ornaments will be displayed on our Angel Tree in the lobby of the Sanctuary. Each ornament contains information about a child in our local community, including age, size, and Christmas wishes. Members are encouraged to take an ornament, buy gifts listed on the angel, and bring them back to the church by December 10th. Make sure to provide Christmas wrapping paper for your gift. PLEASE DO NOT WRAP THEM. Parents will wrap these gifts and give them to their children for Christmas.

The United Methodist Church is actively present, working with local and state emergency management, FEMA, and other volunteers active in disaster. This is how you can help:
We thank you for your concern and the prayers you have already been offering for the people of Texas as they experience the destruction of Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. Please continue to pray for the first responders, those whose homes are destroyed or damaged, and those whose lives will never be the same. Also pray for the congregations on the front lines as they respond to the current needs and the needs that will be there for months and years to come.
The next best way to help is to provide financial contributions which can be used to purchase appropriate and needed items quickly and locally.
- You can give at Navarre United Methodist Church.
- You can donate directly online to UMCOR by clicking here.
- Your church can also send donations to the Fiscal Office, 4719 Woodmere Blvd., Montgomery, AL 36106. Note "UMCOR 901670" in the memo line.
- If you prefer donations be sent directly to the affected annual conferences in Texas instead, send those to the same address above with "Hurricane Harvey - Texas Disaster Response" in the memo line.
The Disaster Response Warehouse in Decatur is asking for these donations:
- Box fans
- 25' heavy-duty 14-gauge extension cords
- 2 gallon garden sprayers

Once the waters recede and invitations from the affected conferences have been extended, we will provide more information about how teams can volunteer on the ground. Please do not self-deploy until we provide additional instructions.
We are already in conversation with the leadership of UMCOR and other conferences' disaster response leadership teams.
