There will be a gathering for prayers on Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the chapel. This week's theme is "Parents' Prayers for Their Children." We will focus our prayers on our children of all ages and the children in the world. Come, let's pray together. 

Special Thank You from Vacation Bible School 

Thank you so much to everyone who helped make this year's VBS a fun and meaningful event! 


School Supplies for UMCOR

Back to School Sale has begun! It is time to collect items for the UMCOR school kits when they are less expensive. We will store them until assembling the kits for dedication before they are collected during the next Annual Conference. This year we are asking for donations of: 

Boxes of 24 crayons (without added crayon sharpeners, etc.),  
12” rulers with inches and metric measurements, Blunt children’s scissors, 
1 subject lined notebook, 100 or 200 count lined notebook filler paper,  
Handheld pencil sharpeners, 2- or 2.5-gallon Ziplock plastic bags, 
Plain unsharpened pencils

*Thank you to all who have contributed to the drive for UMCOR school kits. We have a need especially for the one subject spiral notebook since each kit requires 3 notebooks. Thanks and blessings, Cindy 

Let the Bell Ring for Ukraine
