January,February, March Nerve to Serve                                                                 For the months of January, February, and March we will be looking to support Rise Against Hunger for Nerve to Serve. This amazing organization helps to feed hungry men, women, and children all over the world. Their low cost, highly nutritional meal provides a very filling meal and gives the proper nutrition at a reasonable cost. How can you help? For one we need meal sponsors! You can sponsor one meal for only twenty-nine cents! You read that right! Twenty-nine cents ensures that another  person won’t go to be hungry! You can also sign up to come and help pack meals; we will be packing 10,000 meals on Saturday March 10th.  Sponsorship envelopes will be available on the                tables in the sanctuary.  Visit Rise Against Hunger for more information.1

Winter Weather Reminders                                                                                                  Please remember as we head into the winter months, the church office and activities generally follow the Altoona Area School District M-F with delays and cancellations.  On weekends, please use your best judgement–if bad weather occurs on a Sunday morning, keep in mind it does take time to plow the lots and clean the sidewalks (and for the neighborhood roads to be cleared).  If school is cancelled on a Wednesday or if weather gets bad throughout the day and after school activities are cancelled, the ROCK will be cancelled as well.  Please feel free to call the office or message us on Facebook to find out if we are in if there has been bad weather.  




Did you know?? (Elevator and Wheel Chair Lift info)                                    Second Ave UMC has an elevator to take anyone in need of it up to the sanctuary level or the balcony level?  We also have wheel chair lifts to the social hall and gym.  In our sanctuary, we have spaces for wheelchairs as well.  Please contact us if you’d like to come take a look!
