WUMC NEWS OF THE WEEK

WHEN IT RAINS… IT POURS!  So went the first day of the Village Fall Festival!  In spite of the “abundant supply” of rain and wet weather… spirits were not dampened!  The church had planned to have a fried chicken dinner there on the Boulevard but… alas… it was not to be with the soggy ground.  However, when the “team” went into action and chairs and tables were set up inside the church… the delicious chicken dinner was served with many faithful workers!  There were 133 take-out orders and 134 who were seated indoors for a total of 267 dinners served.  In some ways it was easier to do there at the church as there was no transporting of all that food to the Boulevard.  God and His people came through!

 

SUNDAY MORNING at 9:00 a.m. the sun shone brightly but due to the wet grounds we moved the worship service to the church as well.  Since we had some desserts left over, we had a casual get-together in the Overflow Room since tables were already set up.  So, we had our worship with music played by Linda Selinger and sung by the congregation even as we drank coffee and lemonade with cake or pie and Pastor Dick brought a good message on FAITH!

 

MONDAY from 8-11:30 NIMBLE FINGERS QUILTERS meet!

 

NEXT SUNDAY, YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN US FOR WORSHIP – 9:00 a.m.
