1st Sundays



HYMN SING SUNDAY
Remember that the first Sunday of every month is “Hymn Sing Sunday.” That means that for the ten minutes before Worship begins, members of the congregation are invited to request a favorite hymn, perhaps one we don’t sing as often as you’d like! So, come early, select a hymn, call it out, and sing along!

TABITHA'S CLOSET SCHOOL SUPPLIES GIVEAWAY
It is not too early to begin thinking about the annual Tabitha’s Closet School Supplies Giveaway. This event will take place on Saturday, August 12th, from 9 – 10:30 AM. Donations of NEW backpacks, pens, binders, paper, spiral notebooks, crayons, highlighters, markers, blue, black, and red ink pens, erasers, rulers, and toothbrushes are all needed, as are monetary gifts.

We do not need pencils or glue sticks this year, as we have lots left over from last year.

This is one of the church’s most successful ministries and is one that has a very powerful impact on the community, due entirely to the generous support of the WUMC family and other patrons. Please see Jill Howes (215-8455) to offer your help. Thank you for your help!
