What is Happening This Week

5/9- 5/13/2018

Dear Church,

There are times in the life of a denomination that have the potential to define the future for all of its members. We, as United Methodists, are facing one of those times. This Sunday, May 13th, we will have only ONE Worship Service at 11:00 am to bring our community together to consider our collective response to recent voting results on UM Constitutional Amendments regarding language of equality.

Vacation Bible School – Shipwrecked

July 8-12, from 5:30 – 8:30 pm

You can now sign up for this summer’s VBS in person or online at VBS 2018. VBS is for children 3years old through 5th grade and nursery is provided for all volunteers. Preschoolers will only attend the opening ceremony and two activity rotations. They will then just have nursery time after that (we could even put them in jammies for you). Our fun theme this year is Shipwrecked.

We will also offer a resource for parents called “Parenting with Grace and Reason”. This class combines tested parenting advice and how understanding it can also deepen our understanding for what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. That class will be 7:15-8:15pm each night, so take advantage of that opportunity.
