United Methodist Men Food Drive Thank you for bringing in food for the food pantry. We gave 389 lbs. to the CUB . Bring in your canned goods and nonperishable food items on the 3rd Sunday of each month.
We have two very pressing needs. We need a Church Treasurer and a Church Financial Secretary.
Church Treasurer We are still in need of someone to fill the position of Church Treasurer. Larry Croft has held this volunteer position along with doing the accounting/bookkeeping for the past seven years and has done an exemplary job. We have recently hired John Bendall part time to take over the accounting/bookkeeping portion of the position. If you believe you have the skills (accounting, bookkeeping, and/or business management) to fill this position, please pray about it and listen to see if God is calling you to serve his church in this manner.
Financial Secretary/Stewardship Chair Thank you to Charlene Slanker our new Financial Secretary/Stewardship Chair. Roy Stewart has been doing a wonderful job with this ministry. The Financial Secretary essentially keeps track of the counting of offerings and recording the giving in the appropriate categories. The Treasurer and Financial Secretary may not be the same person nor can they be related.
For a complete accounting, send your request to: email@example.com or put note on the registration pad. Please pray about your giving. Know that it supports so many good ministries that reach out into our community. Your church needs your gifts of your time, your money and especially your prayers.
Mission Items Needed, Local & Haitian Missions • Pillowcases for girls' dresses.
