March Challenge

We had 86 notes/words of encouragement sent during the month of March!

April Mission Challenge

For the month of April we will be collecting new and gently used children's books for Heart 4 the City. Please drop books off in the bin outside the doors or on the bookshelf in the gathering area. If you would like to learn more about this organization, click here.

Praying for our community during COVID-19
 
We have an opportunity to pray for those in our community outside the walls of our building for their concerns with the COVID-19 virus. There will be a message on our roadside sign inviting people who pass by to feel free to drop off written concerns into the designated drop-off box at the outside North entrance area (under the carport type roof) so that our congregation will keep them in prayer. The prayer concerns will be routed through the existing prayer chain. Anyone in our congregation who feels called to participate in praying with this focus, please call Margie Cossin at 330-882-9658 to be added to the prayer chain list, receive the prayer concerns and begin praying.

Preschool
Contact: Sharon Paige spaige@mzumc.org
We will be returning from our Spring Vacation on Monday and jumping right into the letter “V”. The children will discover how vegetables grow, explore their sense of smell with vinegar, vanilla and Vicks Vapor Rub, and erupt a few volcanoes in the FFC. Some of our fun snacks include vegetable chips, a vegetable taste test, vanilla wafers and vanilla ice cream! YUM!! On Wednesday, Fireman Steve will visit the preschool with his BIG RED TRUCK to talk to the children about fire dangers and safety tips for the whole family.

Registration for our 2021/2022 school year has begun this month. Please help us advertise our preschool by taking a flyer to your place of employment, Mother’s Group, or to your neighborhood friends with children. Like us on “FaceBook” and please share our registration posts in the community.
