Attention: All Mims Folks Who Work with Children or Youth
All United Methodist Churches are required to have a Child Protection Policy in place. We have officially adopted the Policy, and are committed to make sure all those working with children and youth are trained and follow the procedures of our Policy. This is especially important this year since the Policy has been extensively revised. On Sunday, May 5, the five churches in Titusville will join together to hold a training for ALL our volunteers. It will be held at First UMC Titusville, and begin at 1 p.m. with a pizza lunch (donations accepted), followed by the training, led by Rev. Ryan Frack of the UM Children’s Home. ALL VOLUNTEERS WITH CHILDREN AND YOUTH ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THIS TRAINING! Please make every effort to participate. Contact Pastor John to indicate you plan to attend.
Scouts Holding a Carwash on Saturday
Our Scout Troop will hold a carwash at Advance Auto Parts (old Kmart parking lot) on Highway 50, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Please support our scouts!
Special Offering on March 31st
Every time there is a fifth Sunday in a month, we receive a special offering. Twice a year it is for the Children’s Home, and twice a year it is for a project on our campus. Next week’s (March 30/31) special offering will be applied toward upgrading the technology we use for worship in the sanctuary. Six months ago, we received an offering to go toward a new video projector. We received a generous amount, but not enough to purchase the new projector. We also want to upgrade the computer, purchase some new hand-held microphones, and a system for hearing-devices for the worshipers who need them. Please consider giving toward this effort!
The Gideons have thanked us for your offering of over $800, which they say will provide hundreds of Bibles!
