REACH 2018

October 28 thru November 18

This year REACH will take place over the span of three weeks with missionaries/mission organizations presenting during Adult and Youth Sunday School Classes, 9:45 and 11am Sunday morning Worship Services, FUSION, and Wednesday Night Live.  

Why is REACH important? Because Jesus commissioned His followers to be His witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the Ends of the Earth (Acts 1:8).  Learn how we are supporting those efforts and how you can participate by attending one of the REACH events.  Click Here to view the 2018 REACH Schedule or pick up a copy at the Connecting Center this Sunday! Questions? Contact Frances Surgenor at fsurgenor@aol.com or Bert Giles at bgiles@ucumc.org.

The Gift of the Nutcracker

The Nutcracker was first performed in 1892, and quickly became a holiday tradition, one that continues for many families to this day. In The Gift of The Nutcracker, Matt Rawle takes a look at this Christmas classic in a new way through the lens of faith. In this four-week Advent study, Rawle uses the iconic tale to help us understand God’s greatest gift of the Christ child and of the kingdom Christ came to build.

Click Here to Register for this Study. Participant Books are recommended. You will receive an email with info on how to purchase the workbook once you have registered for this group. For more info contact Rene Wilt at rwilt@ucumc.org.   

  • Wednesdays, Nov. 28, Dec. 5 & 19

We will meet at 6:30pm, in the Cafe.
