United Methodist Women meet the first Wednesday of each month at 5:30pm in the Upper Room at the Church.
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.
In the last several weeks we have learned to ‘shelter in faith,’ we remember Jesus’ disciples who also sought shelter. As Jesus was headed to the cross many of his disciples went into hiding for fear of their lives. It would be easy to assume we are all ‘sheltering in faith’ because we too are afraid for our lives, some might even say we lack faith.
Proverbs 2:11 says, “Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.” We do not shelter out of fear, rather we choose discretion and ‘shelter in faith” to socially distance. We will choose to limit contact to do no harm. We choose acts of compassion for our neighbors and friends who are more vulnerable because of their age, medical history, or current health situation we choose love.
We choose love, which is manifest in service and the sacrifices we make of our own needs and wants for the benefit of our neighbors. This, my friends, is a sign of true Christian faith, to love our neighbors as ourselves understanding what affects one affects all. I give thanks to God and rejoice in this ministry of care we share in this unprecedented time. Pastor Libby Oberdorf

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!
