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!

Michael Turner began serving as the pastor of the Reading United Methodist Church on July 1. He serves both Reading and Osage City. This is Pastor Michael’s fourth year in ministry; for the past three years he has served churches in the Topeka area part time while also working

Pastor Michael grew up on a family farm about 80 miles west of Omaha and graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Prior to 
beginning ministry full time, he has worked as a broadcast photojournalist, a retail manager, and a health inspector. Photography and cooking are two of his passions.
