There are two options. You can drop donations off at Trinity Lutheran Church in Taneytown at 38 W Baltimore Street (metal container located at the rear of the church, at the parking lot entry door) OR you can drop them on the back porch of the Parsonage at EBUCC and they will be delivered to Trinity. We will be checking for donations daily.
Please consider donating! There are a lot of families struggling right now. Thank you!!

Holy Joe’s Café: Coffee for the Troops

          Holy Joe’s Café is a place where chaplains in the small Forward Operating Bases, hangar bays, hospitals, aid stations, and their makeshift chapels are able to bring  taste of home to the tired, the anxious, the angry, the lonely, and the wounded. They all can enjoy gourmet coffee–a reminder that the world they willingly left behind still cares and is still there waiting for them to come home. The impact on our troops is truly immeasurable! Small touches of home can have a big impact on soldier morale and welfare. The warming effects of a cup of coffee on a soldier’s body and soul are as important as its caffeine content. Back in the states, coffee shops line the street corners, but in places like Afghanistan comforts like a cup of coffee are few and far between!           Please consider giving a donation to the UCC Coffee Project. The UCC Conference purchases and sends coffee through the Equal Exchange Coffee to the military chaplains in Baghdad. Please place marked offering into offering plates at church or mail to the church address.
