All Saints Remembrance Sunday

This Sunday the 31st, 6-7pm, you are invited to join us in the sanctuary for a special event of prayer, remembrance, and celebration of life. Historically, October 31 has been a Christian holiday known as All Hallows Eve, the evening before All Hallows Day (or, All Saints). This was when the church would remember and celebrate all the saints who had died in the Lord. You’re invited to this special come-and-go event. We will have individual prayer stations and places for personal quiet reflection for you to remember and give thanks for the departed loved ones in your life. Pastor Joseph and Pastor Phil will also be available for prayer at this time.



UMW will be selling PECANS. They will be $12 per one pound bag. You can order halves or pieces. PLEASE PLACE YOUR ORDER BY NOVEMBER 14TH. Contact Shanron Rider or Martha Hayes with questions. Pecans and noodles will be available on the 21st of November.


Sunday Greeters

After a long absence due to Covid we are resuming the greeters program to welcome members and visitors to our church. We would appreciate your help in greeting church goers. We will follow the protocols established for Covid. We like to have 2 volunteers each Sunday 20 minutes before Church begins. We are making some changes to the way we have done this in the past and would appreciate suggestions as to how to make the program better. There will be a sign-up sheet available in the main hall way.

Prayer Walks
Prayer connects us daily to a loving God moving in our midst. In his 3 rules for Methodists, John Wesley calls us to both private and public prayer. On the first
Monday of every month at noon, we will have a prayer walk through our neighborhood. We will divide into small groups at the entrance of the church and
proceed in different directions. Along the way, we will pause to pick up trash and renew our streets and sidewalks. Please contact Pastor Joseph with any
