LGBTQ Special General Conference

Join us
 as we celebrate our relationship together, as the body of Christ. In the midst of differences and difficult conversations, we are able as Christ followers to love each other anyway. And what a blessing that is! Join us as we offer ways to appreciate one another and share the love that is so generously shared with us.

A New Worship Series at MUMC
Begins February 24


1 Corinthians 13 contains the best definition of love ever written. We will spend a couple of weeks walking our way through the text, applying the truths therein to our own relationships and lives today. Invite a friend or coworker to join us for the delightful yet thought-provoking series. 
A Lenten Series: Begins Ash Wednesday
March, 6 at 6:30pm directly after the Community Dinner

 
We will kick off the journey toward Easter with a hands-on worship experience highlighting a multitude of elements essential to the journey. Child-friendly, creative, and tactile. A great service to invite youth, unchurched friends, or those you haven't seen in a while. 

Bunco
Friday, February 15
7:00pm in the CoffeeHouse

Bunco is a fast paced, easy to learn dice game!  Invite a friend and join us for a night of fun.  Questions?  E-mail Rita Buckland at elvis1017@aol.com

Ministries in Need of Prayer

LGBTQ Struggle in the U.M.Church: that all our members and friends will join us in offering love and consideration for those with a different interpretation of scripture and it's application than our own. Let us continue to live faithfully together!

Enough Exchange Store: that other churches and organizations will take the training and begin serving, that all current volunteers would be of good health and blessed, that all those who shop at the store would be blessed by the goodness of God and all gifts that have been given for them. 

Winter Semester: that every member and friend at MUMC would become a part of a small group, that all volunteers and leaders would be blessed in their work and guided by the Holy Spirit, and that all may grow in grace and love as they attend their groups.
