Thank YOU for making Fall Fest
a huge success!
Hundreds of JCUMC and community children came out and had a wonderful time at this faith-filled fall event. We couldn't have done it without each one of you that volunteered!
If you are in need of a quiet place to spend time with God in prayer and meditation, our Prayer Room beside the Chapel is open from 7:30am to 8:30pm Monday – Friday. 

The entrance is on the Bell Road side of the church and to the right of the Chapel doors. If you choose, also available are battery operated tea lights for lighting and a journal to share your thoughts.
