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.

ORDER your MUMC T-SHIRT HERE
use the CODE: MUMC17

NO COMPUTER?  NO PROBLEM!  If you still want a shirt, but cannot order online:
1)  FILL OUT a HARD COPY ORDER FORM FOUND HERE
2)  ATTACH PAYMENT – Checks should be made out to “Design Illusions
3)  MAIL or DELIVER to “Design Illusions, 1010 W. Holly Hill Road,  Thomasville, NC 27360.

We are keeping the work in Thomasville. Paul and Design Illusions have always provided excellent quality and service.

All women of the church are invited to the Gathering on Monday, October 9th, in the RL Pope Room. Dinner will begin at 6:00pm. We will have a speaker from the Bethlehem Center in Winston-Salem. We will begin our new program book for 2017-2018 titled Sacred Spaces: Encounter with God and Neighbor. Lynn Poole will present an environmentally friendly project. Please bring toiletries for CCM. Dinner is $8 and reservations are due to Lynda Stone by Wednesday, October 4th at lyndamstone@gmail.com or at 336-882-6046. Please let Lynda know if you need childcare. Looking forward to seeing you there!

UPDATE ON OUR FALL BIBLE STUDY

The book is entitled Five Means of Grace: Experiencing Love the Wesleyan Way by Elaine Heath. It is a five week study and 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.
