Calling All Heroes!

Sign Up Now!

At Wake Forest UMC, one way we reflect the love of Christ to our neighbors is by helping children in public schools! Our partner school, Wake Forest iSTEM Magnet Elementary School (WFiSMES) has a wonderful volunteer opportunity available this school year! They are seeking volunteers to come into the school to read to students in a new program called Heroes Read. The time commitment is 30-60 minutes each week. This is a great opportunity for us to get out in our community and reflect God's love. If you are interested, please fill out this volunteer interest form:

Many thanks! Amanda Murtha (WFUMC C4C Coordinator)

If you are a baker or a cook – we can use all types of baked/cooked items such as cookies, cakes, jams and candies for the Bakery Area!  Contact Myrna Leggett ( for more information.  The bakery area is in need of folks to make casseroles.  They are also looking for an upright freezer if anyone has one to loan the bakery area for the weekend to store the casseroles.

If you have plants or outdoor items that you would like to donate to the Cracked Pots area contact Cheryl Heller (


Can’t craft or cook – contact Sue Allen – we will be glad to take cash/check donations to help with craft supplies or gift cards to Walmart/Sam’s Club for baking supplies as well.


We will be posting a Sign-Up Genius closer to the Bazaar weekend for everyone to sign up to help in stew preparation, help check people out and general volunteers for set up, running the event and tear down.


All proceeds this year will be going towards the new stove in the FLC, The Community Table here in Wake Forest and Parent Project MD (in memory of Andrew Littleton).  We will also be doing our annual college freshman care packages as part of this wonderful event!
