Central UMC is closed today due to snow/freezing rain mix. Soup lunch will be next Sunday.
The special Easter Offering this year will go towards World Service. This offering reminds us of Central’s position in the connectional United Methodist Church. Through our World Service apportionment, Central can participate in the effort to improve global health and assist the poor, two of the major focus areas of the United Methodist Church in 2017. Plus, it helps us look beyond our sheltered environment here in the Shenandoah Valley to places which are in dire need of assistance. Please help us support World Service by being generous with your Easter offering.
-Joe Hill, Finance Chairman
A team of 13 hard workers from Central spent a week, August 15-20, rebuilding homes for victims of the February tornado which struck Waverly, VA. The team did jobs such as re-roofing, soffit repair, and siding work on two houses.
