Mission Trip 2018 Informational Meeting

While all plans are preliminary, SUMC is planning another adult international mission trip to Uganda in the fall (usually early October). An informational meeting will be held on Monday, February 12 from 6:30—8:30 pm in the Barn. Those who have traveled in the past are welcome to come and share their mission experiences. If you are unable to attend but are wondering if travel is right for you, please contact Michelle in the church office. This is an exciting opportunity to share God's love.

Visitation Team Ministry Opportunity

The Lay Visitation Team led by Sandee Fleet assists with Pastoral Care by visiting people on a regular basis who are home-bound or in Assisted-Living Facilities. The team also includes Eucharistic Ministers who celebrate Holy Communion with those whom they visit. This past year we served 17 people with a team of 10 volunteers. Several people on the team have recently retired from this ministries so there are new opportunities for service in this area. If you enjoy visiting with seniors one-on-one, if think you have a spiritual gift of mercy/compassion, and have good active listening skills, this could be a great ministry for you. For more info, please contact Sandy Fleet at 508.971.8095 msfleet4333@comcast.net.
