Love Poured Out
Jesus was God’s love poured out for us. Jesus forgave again and again, modeling kindness and love in unmeasurable amounts– even before folks admitted they needed it! Join us as we open ourselves to Christ’s presence and answer the call to be his compassion poured out in the world.

New Modern Music Director Comes to MUMC!
Daniel Beckwith will begin his work with us Monday, working in the office, getting to know staff, the band, leading practices, and attending both MiStaff and Worship Planning meetings.  He will be out of town this Sunday and wants to give his current employer 2 additional Sundays, so that said... he won't be with us on a Sunday until the first of June.  A huge thanks to the band and Bill Slaght for all their work these past 6 months!

If you weren't able to be with us in worship last week and bring your Commitment forward, feel free to drop in offering plate this week, drop off in the office during the week, or simply mail it in to Marshall UMC, 721 Old US27 N., Marshall, MI . 49068.

SUPPORT MUMC WITH AMAZON SMILE
Are you an Amazon.com shopper?  If so, please consider becoming an AmazonSmile shopper instead and let your purchases benefit MUMC!  Simply log on to 
Smile.amazon.com (rather than amazon.com), and start earning donations to MUMC.  The product selection and prices are exactly the same as Amazon.com.  By using Smile.amazon.com for your shopping, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice.  MUMC is a registered recipient of donations and can be selected by clicking on the bright orange "Supporting:" link located under the search bar.  Scroll to the "U's" to find United Methodist Church of Marshall.  Thank you and happy cyber shopping (of course, all within your Dave Ramsey budget!)

Annual Annabel Ousley Blood Drive
Friday, May 18 12:00pm-5:45pm
Every year the American Red Cross has a big blood drive in honor of Annabel Ousley.  The family brings food, sloppy joes and more.  Annabel's family is so grateful to the Red Cross, they enjoy giving back as a token of their appreciation for the units Annabel was given at her time of need.  Remember, you give one pint and that pint saves 3 lives.
