Scout & Church Outing to Feed My Starving Children

See you Tomorrow




Tomorrow we will continue our journey of what makes the United ‘Methodist’ denomination unique and special.


George Whitfield was a contemporary to John Wesley and according to all – a far better preacher. Whitfield’s churches never took off and he attributed that to the emphasis Wesley placed on small groups. Tomorrow we will look at his genius which to this day is the strength behind any church that is alive and thriving.


Tomorrow the importance of a small group in our faith journey.


As always you can also watch the service from the safety and convenience of your home. The zoom link is below.


Join Zoom Meeting


All of our Sunday services use the same zoom meeting so in case you are ever looking for the zoom information you can keep this handy and / or you can head over to our web page at where it is also listed.


Enjoy this fantastic day and stay safe and courageous as followers of Jesus.

We Will



Last week we were told we passed a grim milestone – one million have officially died from the COVID virus. Sadly that does not include those who put off cancer tests, those sent home from the hospital emergency room because there was no room for them and the many who choose to ignore their symptoms because they were afraid to leave their home.


The stories are heartbreaking. We also recently learned that the virus has left more than 1 million children orphaned.


Last week we paused to remember and share the names and stories of family and friends lost to COVID. In our own personal moments let us continue to do so.





Willing to Help?


Week in and week out we have some goodies to snack and drink after church.


It would probably not surprise you that while they are magically delicious no little elf helps plate it up for us.


Lately, Marion Bacon and Denise Linebaugh have been carrying most of the load. They would welcome your help. Marion and Denise would love to share the joy with you. If you are here Sunday morning, please express to them your willingness to learn more about the ins and outs of serving in this way.

This week our Scout troop participated in an outing to Feed My Starving Children. Of those participating there were 11 scouts, 1 sibling and 8 adults. That evening’s attendees including the scouts, packed 75 boxes which is 16,200 meals (see attached photo for detailed summary). The whole troop had fun packing food. Some even made it a challenge to pack as much as possible in the short time we were there.
