Plastic Bag Sleeping Mats

A new Acton Women In Mission (UMW) Project. We are organizing a community project to reuse plastic bags and craft them into sleeping mats for the homeless and those in need. The mats are lightweight, waterproof, and bugs stay away from them. It takes 500-700 bags to make one mat. It's not too late to send in your plastic bags, they can be brought in any time. Questions? Contact Ann Schmidt.

Alzheimer's Support Group

Backpack Lunch Ministry

Every year Acton Methodist Church purchases, packs, and serves 3,600 weekend lunches. These lunches are often the only things students who receive free and reduced meals have on the weekend. This program is not a budgeted program, but comes from funds raised entirely by the congregation outside of the general budget and from a grant through Neighbors Feeding Neighbors. Volunteers are needed to help purchase and deliver the lunches and work on your schedule. Contact Pastor Ben to volunteer or learn more.

Do you know someone who is hurting and could use a caring individual by their side? A loss of a loved one, a job, an illness?
