NEW USHERS NEEDED: Our current usher roster could use some permanent & substitute members for both services. Contact Shelly Boehm at 671-7160 or Susan Franchi at 290-5221 for details.
DID YOU KNOW . . . “The United Methodist Church” is 50 years old and our church is 131 years old? If you would like to be a part of researching our history contact Judy Ogden at 386-334-3468. It would be appreciated if any photos, newspaper articles, or other historical items and stories of our church be given to Judy.
FIRST CHURCH IS GOING GREEN: We have two new water fountains installed in the KidMin and Preschool buildings. We now have water fountains in all major areas of the church, so the church will no longer purchase disposable water bottles. As fluorescent bulbs burn out, we will replace them with energy-conserving LED bulbs. Share your “green” ideas as we move forward!
THRIFT BOUTIQUE NEEDS: If you’re looking for a fun place to plug in and serve, this may fit your call.  We’re in need of cashiers, clothing and regular merchandise processing, pricing, general counter maintenance and displaying of new arrivals.  Most shifts are 10-1 or 1-4 but we are very flexible. For more information please call 386-767-6511.
CHURCH MAILING ADDRESS: The church mailing address is 405 Dunlawton Avenue, Port Orange, FL 32127. Please update your records to reflect this so that correspondence and giving envelopes mailed to the church come directly to our mail box.
CAFÉ IN THE HALL VACATION: Café in the Hall will be taking a hiatus for the months of June and July.
JOURNEY CLASS TAKING A SUMMER BREAK: We’ll resume July 15th at 10am in the Admin Building. Next Study will be Adam Hamilton’s “Unafraid”. It would be a great time for a new friend to join.
FOOD PANTRY FOOD OF THE MONTH: Pop top cans of pasta. Drop off in sanctuary on Sunday or in office during the week.
