Pray for Our




Pick up your blue wrist band at church and pray for one police office in our county.  The "Thin Blue Line" of the band comes with a card with the name of a police officer.  You are asked to pray for that officer each day through June 30th.  Wristbands are in a box in the lobby and you may select the name of any of the 308 officers in the county who have not yet been chosen.  This program is being coordinated by the Pastor's Prayer Partners.  Please see the "Grapevine" for more details.

Clean Closets

kids cafe

In a novel way to help raise funds for camperships, we are participating in ‘Clean Closets for Campers’ where folks are asked to bring their used clothes, belts, shoes, hats, scarves and other 'wearables' to our collection site in the lobby and they will be turned in for money. The money will be used to establish camperships for our children and youth who want to attend summer
camp at one of our two United Methodist camps: Manidokan and West River. A large box will be placed in the narthex, along with a taped off designated area for your donations from April 10 - 24.

Join us for Coffee

cafe worshipOur Cafe Worship service has proven so popular that we have made it a permanent additon to our worship shcedule.  This unique worship opportunity replaces our previous "Early Service".  Enjoy worship in a casual atmosphere in our fellowship hall.  You can have coffee, donuts, pastries, and more while participating in a meaningful worship service that will have the same message and scripture as the 10:00 AM service.  Don't like to sing, then this is the service for you.  Come enjoy and worship the Lord.  8:30 during the school year, 8:00 AM during our summer hours.
