Garage Sale is Coming

Starting May 1st


With the arrival of spring you may have begun the process of evaluating your possessions in order to eliminate unused items in the closet , cabinet, garage and storage. Many of these items will valuable as for donation to the Methodist Men’s annual GARAGE SALE. Such items should be brought to the church Monday thru Thursday during April OR to the Youth Building beginning May 01.

 

Due to the trending reduction in a viable workforce, the Methodist Men are no longer able to accept furniture or appliances. Please continue to support with items of clothing, kitchen and tableware, tools, arts and crafts, bedding and towels, and sporting items and toys.

 

All items will be sold to support the Scholarship Funding for High School Graduates.

Grief Support Group

May 19th


During Sunday School hour on 3rd Sundays, a Grief Support Group will meet in Wesley Hall. ANYone is welcome, and this is a group that will grow and shrink according to individuals’ needs. We will address issues common to ANY kind of grief (not just death or illness).

Did You Miss the Call?

The youth tried to call all church members last week to raise money for the summer mission trips.  If you did not get to talk to one of our fabulous young people but want to help, just donate indicating “youth mission trips.”  Thank you!

Communication!

People need to know how God is moving in our church. We need help communicating that.

How to Dress for Church

Friends, it’s that time of year when we guess about the weather. We tried to turn the heat on for the sanctuary building, and the water refused to heat up.

 

So? Dress in layers. Be prepared for shifting temperatures in our buildings in case we guess wrong and/or the machinery doesn’t want to function.
