Forgiveness
Luke 7:36-50
 
Are you living the perfect life, fully the person God wants you to be? Of course not, no one is, but God's grace and forgiveness offers us second chances. When we can admit our need for God's forgiveness, it opens us up to thankful living in Christ and helps us appreciate the truth that all of us need God's love.

Mission 1025-Special Edition

Join us Sunday, April 22, 4-6pm for a special Mission 1025 for Earth Day! Just like we spruce up our homes to show hospitality to our guests, we will clean flower beds, treat weeds and gather and dispose of trash and limbs over the entire campus. We'll end by wrapping and delivering plants with a KUMC tag to those at work in the community to wish them a Happy Earth day and share Christ's love. Serving activities available for all ages!
Serve at Kellerfest

April 27 and  28, connect with the community by participating at the KUMC booth where we will offer a free craft for children, items for adults and information for everyone to get connected. There are opportunities to serve throughout the two-day event. Spend time with fellow KUMC members as you offer a smile and a small token of hospitality to our neighbors. Can't make it to the event? You can be part sharing Christ's love by assembling goody bags before the event! Get details and sign up to serve here!
Are You Calm During Emergencies?
Like Helping Others in Need?

We are looking for members willing to volunteer their time to help during church services and church hosted events. This volunteer group would be trained on emergency preparedness guidelines and assist staff in directing occupants during an emergency, such as a severe weather incident or fire emergency. No experience needed, just an ability to be calm and a desire to serve in this capacity. Interested? Have questions? Contact  Mickey Shelley or  Todd Haines.
