The Church Attic Thrift Shop is Closed for the Season 
Thank you to our loyal shoppers and supporters for another very successful year!
We will not be accepting any donations at this time. See you in the spring.
We are located at 1869 Trumansburg Road in the old schoolhouse next door to the Jacksonville Community United Methodist Church. All proceeds from sales at The Attic Thrift Shop support the church and its missions. Check out our Facebook page for updates! 

Jacksonville Church's Mutual Aid Food Cabinet is Closed for the Winter
Our Blue Cabinet has become a regular stopping place for those who need food and supplies. We have a cabinet for non-perishable, unexpired food and supplies, and a cooler with ice to hold perishables in the summer months. The cabinet is open from May through November.

For those in our community who are in need of food, the Trumansburg Food Pantry is available every other Monday.
 The sign-up process is quite easy. The hours of distribution are 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. and 5:15 - 6:00 p.m.
 There is also an emergency hotline for those who need assistance immediately at 607-387-8260.  
 A complete listing of food pantries and community meals in Tompkins County can be found at HSCTC.ORG/FOOD.

  Sunday School
A team of committed volunteers has developed a children’s Sunday School program here at JCUMC. The program runs from October through June. Children attend the first part of the regular worship service which includes a children’s message followed by the collection of the Noisy Offering (children collect loose change from congregation members that go to a different charity each week). Following a prayer of thanks, the children are invited to Sunday School classes which are held on the first and third Sundays of the month, and a craft Sunday on the second Sunday. Children may remain with their families for the remainder of the worship service on the fourth Sunday.

United Methodist Women (United Women of Faith)
Our church has a very active group of women who meet on the first Thursday each month from September - May for fellowship, support and community outreach. All women of Jacksonville Community Church are welcome to join us and participate in our various activities. Each month we also assemble blessing bags and send cards to those who are recovering from illness or are otherwise housebound, or just need extra prayers.
