Combined Service June 24

Please note that there will be NO 8:00 am Service, and only a Combined Service at 10:00 am on Sunday, June 24 to recognize Yves’ retirement from SUMC. This is the last Sunday that Yves will play for us and his talents at both the piano and organ will be missed. Please join us for this special farewell.


You Can Be A Lay Servant in the UMC!

A Lay Servant is a professing member of a local congregation who desires to minister to others through preaching & teaching, church and community leadership, and various care-giving opportunities to inspire others towards a deeper commitment as a disciple of Jesus Christ. Specific training is required and a two day course is coming to Trumbull, CT on June 23 & 30. Please speak to Pastor Preiser for more details and to learn if this might be the right service opportunity for you.
