Even if you’ve not signed up to walk in the CROP Walk this coming Saturday in Kerrville, you can still join our Mason area walkers! It will be a day of fun and fellowship for a great cause – HUNGER throughout the world. And, 25% of what we raise will go to our own Mason Food Bank! Several Mason area churches have joined together to promote the CROP Hunger Walk including First United Methodist, Hilda UMC, Art UMC, and Trinity UMC (in Castell). If you would like to walk or donate, you can contact one of our local recruiters:
