October 2nd Updates

All Saints Sunday

If you would like to honor a loved one that has passed away this year, please notify the church office (765-962-8543 or christin@richmondcumc.com) so that we may honor them on November 1st. Please send their name, date of birth and death, and a photo. All submissions are due by October 28th.


Worship Team
Will you prayerfully consider serving on the Worship Team? We have many dreams to grow our worship services in the coming years so that others will have space to connect to God. This might mean new services, different services, or television services. All of these need more servants in the audio video work to become a reality. Please prayerfully discern whether you have the time and heart to bring worship more fully to someone else. Do not worry about the skills. God equips the called more than God calls the equipped. And I know several people ready and willing to walk every step with you. If you feel this tug on your heart, please contact Pastor Joseph or Pastor Jen.


UMW Unit Meeting
Thursday, Oct. 8th at 1:00pm, come join us in Fellowship Hall as Dr. Paul Rider speaks to us about COVID and the pandemic as it applies to Richmond. This should be a very interesting and informative program. ALL are invited. We will be socially distanced, and will all wear masks, as we fellowship and learn together.


Monday Morning Connections

We will be starting “MMC” back-up on Monday, October 12th @ 9:00am in the Fellowship Hall.  For more information, please contact Linda Jennings.

Lamplighter Devotionals and Testimonies
We are asking for devotionals and testimonies from the congregation to be shared in a future Lamplighter. If you feel led to share, please submit yours to Christin at christin@richmondcumc.com.


Wayne County Jail Ministry

I was in prison and you came to visit me … I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:36, 40)

Visiting prisoners has been and continues to be a hallmark of Christian ministry.  Paul wrote several letters from prison.  Jesus, Peter, and John all spent time in prison.  The invitation continues to us today.  The Jail Ministry for the Wayne County Jail is seeking followers of Jesus to serve on its visitation, Crisis Ministry, and Jail services teams.  To do so, you will first need to complete an orientation.  Due to Covid-19, these will be via zoom on October 1st and October 10th.  Please contact Pastor Joseph (joseph@richmondcumc.com) for links to join him in this community ministry.

Technology Assistance Tutorials

The pandemic has placed a massive strain on our technology proficiency, understanding, and stamina.  We are working on offering ongoing space to answer questions and offer basic training on whatever question you may have in regards to computers, phones, and all the programs in between.  Stay tuned for future dates.
