Afton United Methodist Church is pleased to announce our Homecoming Celebration to be held on Sunday, June 2
this year! A wonderful day is planned, filled with the Word of God, song and praise, old friends, new friends, and a wonderful Sunday dinner.
The day will begin at 10:30 AM when members and friends of Afton and Fairfields gather in the Afton sanctuary for a joint worship service. The message will be delivered by our special guest pastor, the Reverend John Jones. Pastor Jones is a former pastor of Afton and Fairfields. We are delighted to welcome the Praise Band, from Ebenezer UMC in Oldhams, Virginia, who will lend their special talents to our worship service.
Immediately following the worship service, we will be treated to an old-fashioned home cooked meal, reminiscent of days gone by. There will be an amazing abundance of down-home tastings, as only Chef Lennie can prepare. The main dishes will, of course, be accompanied by tempting side dishes and desserts lovingly prepared by members of Afton and Fairfields church families.
Following all the worship, and all the eating, and all the fellowship with renewed acquaintances, who will be “a sight for sore eyes”, to be sure, we will be treated to a musical performance by Tangier Praise Band. It is a blessing to have this group travel across the bay to share their amazing talents. This will surely be a wonderful blessed time that we do not want anyone to miss! All are invited, so please come and bring all of your friends, old and new. Afton UMC is located at 5130 Hacks Neck Road in Ophelia. Please praise God and mark your calendars!
