CALLED CHARGE CONFERENCE A Called Charge Conference has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 12, 2013 at 7:00 PM in room 204. All members of the congregation are welcome to attend.

Vital Congregations have five major characteristics: 1. Vital Worship 2. Vital Lay Ministry 3. Vital Community (through small groups that study, pray, serve together) 4. Vital Mission 5. Vital Pastors We have focused our attention on the first three, and today, let’s think and talk prayerfully about Vital Mission. What is it? And how do you and I continue to participate in our mission as United Methodist Christians? To Make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World.

ReCREATION EXPERIENCE PARTICIPANTS A group meeting and signing of forms will follow church service today, June 9, 2013 (12:001:00 PM). This is a very important meeting so each participant and their parent/guardian should be in attendance. We have a couple of questions to answer and all the forms to turn-in.

STGUMC is continuing the drive to prepare kits for UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief. Needed are health, school, and sewing kits (directions and a large box for donations can be found in the narthex). UMCOR is also providing disaster response assistance to the Oklahoma communities devastated by the recent tornados. Information on how to help and the recent efforts may be found on their website [www.umcor.org].
