SAM Food Pantry
SAM (Social Assistance Ministry) food pantry is a ministry of
TUMC that serves families all over Douglas County.
Unfortunately, in today’s economic environment, people are
having to make choices about buying food or paying utility bills
or medical bills. The SAM food pantry exists to make that
choice a little easier. Staffed by friendly, welcoming persons
from a number of the community churches, patrons to the food
pantry receive a supply of food, no more often than once a
month, appropriate to the number of persons in their home.
Food and monetary donations are received by churches and
individuals all around Douglas County. A ministry of the church,
it is truly supported by the entire community!

May is TUMC’s month to help deliver Peace Meals. If you
are available from 11:00 a.m. - approx. noon, Monday -
Friday, and would like to sign up to deliver meals to 15 or so
people in Tuscola, sign up on the sheet available in the foyer
beginning in April. It's usually good to have two people
working together to make deliveries.
This is a great way to connect with some of our aging
residents, sometimes offering the only human contact they
may have in a day. Make a difference in someone's life, and
deliver Peace Meals. For more information, please contact
Carol Weemer, 253- 4453.
TUMC provides monetary and hands-on support to a number
of local mission and social service agencies, as well as
responding to mission opportunities beyond our area, even
beyond our country!
We support three missionaries: Larry and Kathy Glabe are in
ministry through Navigators as they lead ministries on college
Larry and Jane Kies serve in Africa, where Larry is an

The next Manna Café will be Wednesday, April 5, with Carol Weemer
