“Testimonials work great. Showing your reviews in quote marks has a powerful effect on customers and makes them more likely to trust you.”
UMC Sponsored Back to School Picnic at the park.
8a.m. Wednesday walks join us if interested. We park at the church and usually do 2-3 laps around town. In case of inclement weather walking is done in the community building.
When fall sets in and the days begin to shorten, many people grieve the passing of Summer and the longer days as we share more of our waking hours with darkness. Yet, there are great gifts of wonder in the fall season as the trees begin to change and the golds, oranges and reds are interwoven to create a natural quilt covering the earth and the quiet sounds of summer turn to the music of crunching leaves. The leaves are something wonderful to behold as the sky seems to pick up and reflect their colors in sunrises and sunsets filled with brilliant shades of oranges and reds that expand our concepts of Gods splendid creation.
God, the fashioner of all things prepares us to consider what we need to let go of as the darkness settles in so we can open the doors or our hearts to allow Jesus Christ, the light, to enter our hearts. With the light of Jesus in our hearts we overcome the darkness, and we create a marvelous light for the world as we let our light shine before all. We give thanks for this fall season that prepares us for the wonder of Christ’s birth. Pastor Libby
The RES group and a few others volunteered by helping put together the church's playground this weekend. They put the swing set back up, mulched, and put up the timbers. They donated several hours of their Saturday morning to do it and it looks awesome thank you all!
