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 as our guest during and after the service.


Please note that there is a wheelchair entrance from the back parking lot through the double doors. Also the church has a wheelchair located in the back of the sanctuary for anyone who wishes to assist a person coming to a meeting.  Rest rooms for the disabled are available in the Preschool wing.


Those interested in a copy of the DVD of the Christmas Concert should see the UMM President Audley Codner to place their order.


Donations of cars, trucks, boats and RV's are now being accepted by  MUMC.  When someone you know wants to get a tax write-off please let the Trustees (Johnnie Fitzpatrick or church office) know. It is quite simple and easy, we now belong to an organization that will do all the paperwork and take away the vehicle. The church gets a large percentage of the sale. Please get the word around so that we might benefit from anyone not wishing to go through the hassle of disposing of a vehicle.


The Sinclair Scholarship of the Florida UMC is now available for those who are college bound. Details are on the notice board and on the back table.


Those who would like to have their photo up on the bulletin board please see Derrick Ruffin when he is here with his camera.
