Check out this great video from www.umc.org about the history of the Methodist Church in America.
Attendees of last Wednesday’s Movie Under the Moon were encouraged to Dress Like a Pirate. Here is a picture of our fearless Captain Tom. Join the fun every Wednesday night at 7:45pm this summer for good times and a great movie.
The Hands-On Mission Buckets were a Success!
Below are pictures of buckets lined up in the sanctuary of Crossroads UMC before being loaded on the truck and pictures of buckets being loaded.
(Pictures taken by Cynthia Lewis from First Broad Street.)
The Kingsport District had 639 buckets that were turned in by 44 (out of 58) churches, inspected by 12 volunteers, and loaded on the truck by 7 volunteers by 1 pm on Wednesday, June 3.
We‚Äôd like to thank Buddy Butler for chairing and supervising this group; Laurie Neville, for keeping track of the totals and money; Susan Smith for working behind the scenes and bringing food; David Graves for securing the truck and taking it to its final destination before Annual Conference.We appreciate all the time, effort and expense that the churches went to in making this mission effort beneficial for those in Zimbabwe. All the trucks will be blessed and sent on their way at Annual Conference this next week.
