Church News

Here is the latest from your church.

Hello, Church family!  Here are some items you will want to know about what’s happening at Mims UMC!

Mullet Festival Restaurant Day is Today!
Go out for dinner this evening (Thursday) to Village Inn in Titusville between 5 – 8 p.m.  A percentage of your check will come back to our Mullet Festival fund!

Our Church Now Sponsors a Soccer Team!
Our team is made up of children below the age of 6, so it will be fun to watch them play!  Our church name will be on their soccer shirts and we hope to come out in force to watch them play (and build relationships with the parents and grandparents and invite them to our church).  Games begin this Saturday and continue every Saturday through November 10.  The games are played at Chain of Lakes Park (from US1, turn east on Truman Scarborough Way).  The game this Saturday will begin at 9 a.m. and will be played on “Field 9” – the team color is red, and the coach will be wearing a Gator hat – that’s how you can find them.  Bring a lawn chair and cheer our team on!

Work Renovating the Scout House this Saturday and Next
The volunteer team coming from other congregations to renovate the interior of our Scout House (following hurricane damage) will be here on Saturday, Sept. 8 and 15.  Drop by and thank them for this gift of their time and talents!  The Conference is also paying for the interior restoration from offerings other churches gave to help churches with hurricane damage ($3,000).

Cub Pack Growing with Both Boys and Girls
Our Administrative Council voted recently for our Cub Pack to invite girls to join our Pack (the decision about the Scout Troop including girls has NOT been made).  It appears that this will greatly strengthen our program.  The Pack held its Mims Elementary Recruitment Night on Wednesday and had 17 new girls and 16 new boys register!  This, added to the 11 boys already in the Pack, will greatly increase our numbers!  They will hold another recruitment night for Pinewood Elementary next week.

Wednesday Night Suppers Resume Sept. 12
The Dinners are back! – Wednesdays at 5 p.m.  This week is meatloaf, roasted potatoes, and broccoli casserole.
