MEMORIAL UMC’s MISSION…

We are CALLED by Christ to
GROW in faith,
BUILD relationships, and
SERVE all people.

MEMORIAL UMC T-SHIRTS!!!

NOW YOU CAN WEAR YOUR FAITH and LOVE OF YOUR CHURCH on your BACK!
We are proud to offer our congregation and community a chance to purchase an official MEMORIAL UMC T-SHIRT. We have coordinated with Paul Grey of Design Illusions (from right here in Thomasville) to set up an online store which will offer short-sleeve and long-sleeve Ts, sweatshirts and hoodies with our official logo across the back and “Memorial United Methodist Church” on the left chest. Color options are sports gray, navy, and white.  We hope that you will not only wear these shirts proudly around town, but also, during events such as Pancake Day, Trash and Treasure, Gifts Galore, and such

We are to place orders through the DESIGN ILLUSIONS website and NOT through the church office.

UPDATE ON OUR FALL BIBLE STUDY

Many of you have been asking me about our study this fall. The short answer is that the book I want us to tackle was to be published by August 15 (yes, I do like to get them hot off the presses) but I have been notified it will now be the first of September.

The book is entitled Five Means of Grace: Experiencing Love the Wesleyan Way by Elaine Heath. It is a five week study and it will fit neatly into the fall schedule following the Finch Preaching Mission which comes early this year. (October 1-3)  I am thinking we will start the second week in October and still be able to end before Thanksgiving. I am eager to get started and I know you are as well. I’ll keep you posted and I hope the publishing date in September comes to pass.

For more information, please contact Peggy Finch (336) 472-7718
