Sunday, August 2, the Poland mission team will be hosting a fund-raiser lunch in the Family Life Center. This will be the team’s last chance to raise the funds needed to transport musical equipment to Poland.
Many of our worship band, “glorifi,” will be traveling to Poland to continue support of the Polish United Methodist Church music ministry. The ministry was started several years ago by a previous Claremore FUMC musical mission team. Worship music has had a huge impact on bringing people into the church.
Any help you can provide to defray the costs of this mission will be greatly appreciated. You can mark your donations, “Poland Mission.” Please drop the donation into the offering plate or mail to:
Claremore First United Methodist Church
Attn: Poland Mission
1615 N. Hwy 88
Claremore, OK 74017
Our mission’s ministry has a booth at Rusted Rabbit, 408 South J.M. Davis Blvd. Business has been so good they are in need of more merchandise. Do you have some decorative items that are in good condition you would like to donate? Items that sell well are wall art such as sconces and small furniture such as chairs and side tables. If you have items you would like to donate, please call Diana Holverson Loretta Mapes. You may call the church at 918-341-4580 to get their contact information.

Due to expansion and improvements of our football fields, we will be unable to host Upward Flag Football for the 2015 Fall Season. We are very excited to host football again in 2016 with new, professionally built fields designed for the safety and enjoyment of all participants.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause. Please refer to www.upward.org to locate a nearby host for 2015 flag football. We look forward to connecting with you soon!
Registration for students to receive school supplies through the Rogers County School Supply Program will begin Monday, August 3rd. Students may begin picking up their school supplies on August 4th.
This will be the 18th year that the Rogers County School Supply Program will be providing school supplies for the disadvantaged children of Rogers County. Last year 3,057 students were helped at a cost of $46,206.58. Students from every school district in Rogers County received supplies.
Each year the program grows and more students are helped. In anticipation of that growth, this year our fundraising goal is $50,000. Supplies are purchased in advance so your early donation makes a big difference. You can be assured that all donations go toward the purchase of school supplies at the best possible price.
Please consider investing in our children through this program. You may mark your donations “School Supplies.” These children are our future!
