Dear ,
ASH WEDNESDAY 2016

How much will we invest?  Don't miss this message from the our District Superintendent, Scot Ocke! 
UNITED METHODIST ADVANCED GIVING

The United Methodist Church designates a number of Sunday's throughout the year as opportunities for recognizing and supporting particular ministries. These are referred to as Special Sundays and most include an offering used to fund the work of these programs.  Our next Special Sunday, One Great Hour Of Sharing, is coming up on March 6, 2016.  Learn about this special day and how to participate!
CIRCLES OF GRACE

Jesus was born into the midst of a broken world held captive by fear. Throughout his ministry, Jesus extended the love and presence of God deep into the chaos of his world, because God claims all people as His beloved children. Circles of Grace are an invitation to all of us to consider how we can engage the broken chaos of our world with and through the incarnated love of Jesus Christ.
