It will be held in the Adult Sunday School Room on the first floor (across the hallway from Wesley Hall in the education wing).  The class is for those interested in transferring their membership from another UMC or another denomination, as well as those who aren’t a member in any church at the present time.  Youth who have completed confirmation studies are also invited to attend.  Persons interested in attending should register by contacting the church office, 665-2991 or, Rev. Ron, or Pastor Bob, If you have questions, contact those mentioned above. If you are interested but are unable to attend the class and the sessions, let the office know.

For the month of October we will have a collection box in the Wesley Hall. Items they can especially use at this time are: tuna, tuna helper, macaroni and cheese, ravioli, canned spaghetti, canned fruits and vegetables, soups and cereals. Thank you for your donations.  The Missions committee

- Miles of Pennies Let’s work together to collect a mile of pennies to support the Tree of Life Ministry!  The Missions committee is committed to matching a mile of pennies raised by the congregation to support the Tree of Life Ministry which is in desperate need of our help.  Look for the collection container in the church lobby today and for the next several weeks.  For more information contact Julie at 661-3374 and watch for more detailed information in the October Reminder.

- 5th Sunday The Missions Committee would also like to remind the congregation that today September 29th is a red bucket Sunday offering going to the Women’s Shelter.  Bucket Sundays are held whenever we have 5 Sundays in one month.   Drop your loose change (bills accepted also) in the bucket.

- The Annual Soup Kitchen and Country Store, Wednesday, October 16th, will be an important day for our church. It is an opportunity for our entire congregation to enjoy great fellowship while working together toward a very worthy goal. The event is a project of the United Methodist Women but it needs everyone to successfully raise funds designated for camping scholarships and local missions. How can you be involved? Your donations of food and items for the Country Store are needed as well as your willingness to work during the day. A “white elephant” table will also be part of the Country Store. New, like new, and never used household and personal items may be donated for sale. No clothing, please. The Reminder and Sunday church bulletins include a form to be completed and turned in no later than October 7th. Please complete the form to limit the number of calls needed to contact everyone. We count on your help to make this a very successful event.
