Warming Center Returns to FUMC

First United Methodist

We will again host the Warming Center for those without shelter or means. The need is even greater this year so we have agreed to take on an extra week. The two weeks are 12-31-17 through 1-6-18 and again on 2-4-18 through 2-10-18.

There are many opportunities for volunteers. Please see the sign-up sheets in the multi-purpose room or see Sandy Paul or Dan McLatcher for more details. Don’t forget to consider donating socks, underwear, hats, scarves, gloves or other winter essentials. Thank you for being a part of this important ministry and for being the great church that we are. We truly do open our hearts, minds and doors!

Coffee with the Pastor

Oct. 22

We are so blessed to have guests visiting with us each week. I want to invite you to join me for Coffee with the Pastor. We will gather on Sunday, October 22 at 11:30 am in the Library. We’d love to be your church family!

Coffee with the Pastor is designed to help you discover the values and beliefs of this church and the United Methodist denomination in a casual setting. I believe in this church and its’ ministry. When we find the right church family and make a commitment, we grow in our closeness to God, we learn to love our neighbor, and to walk as a child of God. I pray that you find that place of connection that will draw you closer to God.

If you have questions, concerns, or plan to attend, please give me a call or text: 810.488.2390. Or email:revmaureen@mountclemensumc.org.

Child care will be available if that would be helpful for your family, just let me know.
