Related image In a call to action from the United Methodist Immigration Task Force, General Board of Church and Society, General Board of Global Ministries, and United Methodist Women leaders in our denomination express deep concern for migrants, especially the children who are separated from their parents. We are invited to let our voices be heard. You may give to the Advance # 3022144 and look on UMCOR-Global Migration, https://www.umcmission.org/umcor, for further information. We are also encouraged to join the action plan set forth on unitedmethodistwomen.org.

A number of people in the church have received messages that are apparently from Pastor David’s cell phone. Please be aware that this is an attempted scam and that pastor has not had any role in sending these messages. Please ignore these requests and do not answer in any way… and pray for the perpetrators.

Dear congregation, you can make donations to the church through the Vanco electronic giving system. This allows for regular giving to take place according to your preferences. You can set up your giving profile or have the church office help you to do so. Please consider this method of giving.

Welcome to all visitors. You are invited to stand during the service and introduce yourself, or to have someone else introduce you. We want to give you one of our welcome packs and therefore encourage you to fill out the card and tear off the badge, write your name on it and wear it so that we can greet you during and after the service. Note that there is a wheelchair entrance from the back-parking lot through the double doors. The church has a wheelchair in the back of the sanctuary for anyone wishing to assist a person coming to a meeting. Rest rooms for the disabled are available in the Preschool wing.

Please pick up your July/August Upper Room Daily Devotional guide today.
