Missions News
walk
Wesley Woods is planning a comeback from a devastating summer last year.  But it’s going to take campers and the camp to make this happen.  The UM Churches Wesley Woods serves are recruiting walkers and enlisting sponsors to bolster Wesley Woods’ camping program this summer.  Half of what a church raises will go for camperships for that church’s campers and the other half will go towards Wesley Woods’ operating costs.

Our church is sent over a dozen walkers and exceeded our goal for fund raising.  Please continue to be in prayer for Wesley Woods and other Christian camp ministries.
College Spagetti Dinners

College Spagetti Dinner

Thanks to all who help make the Spagetti Dinners for college students a success!.  We are grateful for all of our guests who share fellowship with us and look forward to our next dinner
.  We are always looking for volunteers to help with the dinners.  

Dinners are typically held on the last Thursday of the month.  The next dinner will be when classes resume in Fall 2021.
