Say Cheese for our New Online Directory!

It’s time for a new online directory and we have 2 simple options to make it easy for everyone!

Choose a Sunday (April 14th, 21st, or 28th) and simply stop by the table in the hallway between 10:15 – 11:30am to complete a short information form and smile for the camera. (We will have volunteers taking casual pictures, not a professional company.)

You will also have an online option to submit a casual individual or family photo of your own and complete a digital form. Our hope is to have a brand new online directory by early this summer!

Have 10 Friends and One Saturday Per Year?

One of our many missions ministries is the provision of sandwiches and frozen or canned vegetables to Inner City Night Shelter on a monthly basis. Presently, many of our Sunday School classes and Women in Faith Circles take turns and graciously provide this food.

If you would like to help, we are in need of volunteers on the second Saturdays during the months of February, May, and August. We need 10 individuals for each of those months: 5 willing to make 30 sandwiches and 5 willing to purchase frozen or canned vegetables.

Many hands make for light work. This is a good way for families with children to serve people in our community within the comfort of your home. If you are interested in helping, please email Gary Thompson at [email protected]. Thank you for your consideration of this request for help!

Wycliffe Missionaries are Retiring

Missionaries Cathy & Phil Davison are retiring from Wycliffe Bible Translations after 40 and 37 years (respectively) of successful ministry. Cathy and Phil met in Africa while serving the Lord in different countries and married in 1994. Since then, they have faithfully served with Wycliffe, translating the Bible so that people could have a Bible in their own language. IOHUMC supported Cathy and Phil's ministry for many of those years. The Davison's sent our church family a beautiful African cloth that is being framed at this time along with the following note:

Dear Friends at IOH,

This seems like a very inadequate way to say thank you for your support and encouragement over the years... but it is still heartfelt. and as we say thank you to you, we also say thank you to God for you. May He continue to bless you and your ministry there, in your part of His world.

In His love,

Cathy and Phil

Good Samaritan Circle

All are welcome this Friday, April 5th, at 10:00AM in the Green House. Looks like it will be an interesting time together, because Melodie Moore, our speaker, has asked us each to bring a tube of lipstick or a chapstick….hmmm, wonder why? Come and find out!

This is our last meeting until the fall, so let’s make it a special time to be together.
