AUMC Weekly Schedule & Announcements (Week of April 8)

“You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.’” – Acts 2:28


Good afternoon

We have sunshine today! ….

 It seems sunshine has been hard to come by this past week – so it has been nice to see it out. 

After Easter, some things have slowed down a little bit here at the church this week, but there

have been folks busy outside working on our ramp… On Tuesday, the entire ramp was torn out

and today, concrete has been poured… Pretty soon, we will have a new ramp!

Next week’s schedule is below along with a few announcements. If you want to order some pizza, 

cookies or bread stick kits from Little Caesars, be sure to call the office (543-3159) or get in 

touch with a youth member. Orders are due Wednesday, April 11th.  There also is a church

council meeting a week from today on April 12 at 7:00 pm.

Despite the cooler temperatures that are in the forecast – I hope that everyone

still has a good weekend…

Are you living with the stress of an  overwhelmed

April 2018 Food Pantry News


The pantry continues to be busy.  I have both a happy and sad story to share with you.  We “lost” a family that we have helped for several years.  We lost them because they became employed and no longer need our help.  What an exciting blessing! 

We gained a new couple because they now have medical problems that keep them from working.  We were able to give them several bags of groceries and help fill their cabinets again.  They were extremely appreciative and thankful for the help.I appreciate the donations that you bring to church each month.  Your generosity brings smiles to those who weren’t smiling when they came to the pantry.
Iris and Howard Ramsey, Marilyn Allison and I delivered 38 Easter “goodie bags” to our senior members. A  friendly visit was enjoyed at each stop.
We are in need of laundry soap, cereal, shampoo & conditioner, deodorant and toilet tissue. 
As always, thank you for supporting our outreach project.
