WEDNESDAY NIGHT SUPPERS
RESUME NEXT WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22!!!
Cooking teams have been organized, local restaurants talked to, the men of the church are all “fired up” to cook out some Wednesdays and other groups within the church are planning great meals for our WNS gatherings. In other words, we are ready to cook and eat!

Since it has been well over a year that we have gathered to dine, we really would appreciate knowing who is planning to be at supper on September 22. You can turn in a Connection card this coming Sunday or call the office and let Lee put you on the list – the sooner the better!!

We really need a read on what Wednesday Night Supper is going to look like numbers wise.

MENU:
  • Roast pork loin
  • Hash brown casserole
  • Jim’s carrots
  • Slaw
  • Assorted desserts

Cost for dinners this year will be: $8 Adults; $4 children; under 5 eat free
Bible Study with Barb

Bible Study with Barb will meet on Wednesday evening, Sept 22, at 7:00.

We will now meet either via Zoom OR in the Youth Room at the rear of the sanctuary.

For the next several weeks we will be studying and discussing our favorite Psalm. If you have a favorite one, let me (Barb) know and we’ll put that in the schedule. Then come and join us as we read it and find out why it’s important to all of us. What?! You don’t have a favorite? You like them all? Great! Come anyway and hear about the one we read on 9-22 and maybe it will become your favorite!

We would love to have you all come and check it out. Call or text me, Barb at 419-680-2103, if you have any questions or to let me know your favorite Psalm. See you Wednesday!

Spirit Journey

The Spirit Journey Connexion Group will meet this Thursday afternoon, Sept 23, at 1:30 in the Fellowship Hall.


We’re reading about the Fruit Flies in our Faith. This wonderfully entertaining and informative book by Annie Paden looks at each of the fruit of the spirit in new way, adding in all those pesky “fruit flies” that seem to be ever-present in our daily lives.

This week’s fruit is JOY. Are joy and happiness the same thing? Come and see! We have such fun and wonderful fellowship each time we meet that you will enJOY being a part of it.

Call or text me, Barb at 419-680-2103, if you have any questions or for a copy of the book. See you Thursday!  

***********************************




Upper Room Connexion Group

The Upper Room at SUMC will meet on Wednesday morning, Sept 22, at 10:30 in the JOY Room off the narthex at the rear of the church.

Each Wednesday morning, we read that day’s devotion from The Upper Room devotional booklet and discuss any of the daily devotions from the previous week that particularly spoke to us throughout the week.

If you are looking for a small group of terrific people, check out this group. We have great discussions and wonderful fellowship! Call or text me, Barb at 419-680-2103, if you have any questions. See you Wednesday morning!
