Pastor Cindy’s May 12th Epistle

Pastor Cindy’s May 12th Epistle


We will be collecting food on Sunday, May 21 for Hope of Southern Indiana.  This will be our first food drive for 2023. We will be giving each family a bag to bring your food items in next Sunday.  The bags were provided by Georgetown Cash Saver.  Hope has shared with us their need for the following items at this time: canned tuna; spaghetti and spaghetti sauce; peanut butter; saltine crackers, ready meal canned soups; canned beans {no green beans}; shampoos; laundry detergents; diapers {sizes 4-6}. We will gather the food in the sanctuary around the center altar table.

We will have one service at 10:00 a.m. and a pitch-in lunch following worship to celebrate Pastor Cindy’s retirement and departure from EUMC.  Meat {Chicken} will be provided by SPRC.  Please bring a side dish, salad or dessert to share.  You may bring cards/greetings to share with Pastor and Tilly regarding your thanks for her ministry and service with us over these past three years.

Invite your friends, neighbors, family and music lovers to this great concert.  If you have questions, please feel free to talk with Raymond Horton or Steve Lasher.

If you are needing any wood for summer fire pits, bon fires, campfires or at your home fireplace, there is free fire wood available at the church in the north yard behind the fire bushes.  There are sections of 18” tall by 3’ in diameter.  It is free to anyone who wishes to take it.

Painter needed for a bedroom at the Parsonage. We have a bedroom in the basement of the parsonage that needs to be painted.  We are waiting to see what color Madison {Pastor Ron/Krishna’s daughter} would like for that room. The paint will be provided. If you would like to help, please see Bill Dorsch if you or a crew would like to tackle that project.
