Pastor Cindy’s May 19th Epistle

Pastor Cindy’s May 19th Epistle


We will be collecting food on Sunday, May 21 for Hope of Southern Indiana.  This will be our first food drive for 2023. Each family received a bag to put food in on Sunday.  If you did not receive a bag, please feel free to stop in and get one if you need one or more. 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.

COMMONWEALTH BRASS BAND will perform in the EUMC Sanctuary on Wednesday June 14 at 7:00 p.m. There will be a free-will offering received on this evening. Invite your friends, neighbors, family and music lovers to this great concert.  If you have questions, feel 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 fire place, there is free fire wood available at the church in the north yard behind the Burning 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, see Bill Dorsch if you or a crew would like to tackle that project.
