One Nation Walking Together

Over the past several years the Erie UMC's Methodist Women and Sewing for Others group have collected shoe boxes, toiletries and handmade items which they wrap and send to One Nation to be distributed to elders on the Rose Bud and Pine Ridge Reservations in South Dakota.  This is a mission, outside of our budget, fulfilled solely through the love and blessings of our congregation.
