From the Lay Leader’s Desk: 
May 2018

Look what’s taking place at Little Utica this spring and summer. May, June and July are going to be very busy.  I am so very proud of all that attend our church.  We are so blessed to have so many new families in attendance and people becoming new members of our church family. It’s just wonderful to have children attending and singing in the Children’s Choir. Everyone is smiling big when the kids sing loudly and beautifully on Sunday mornings.


Upper Room Prayer Line is every first Thursday of the month from 11-1pm in the church office. We are taking 9-14 calls in that 2-hour time slot. So many people are in need of prayer and someone to just listen to their needs. Anyone interested in helping with this prayer mission, please contact me.


Learning to Pray, a 5-week course was completed with our last prayer session on Thursday May 3rd. What a pleasure it was for me to be in prayer and fellowship with the six dedicated folks that attended. Learning to Pray will be offered again in the fall.


Mother’s Day Service was held on Sunday May 13 at 10 am. This year the church’s Lay Servants led the morning’s service. Thanks to Doug MacEwen, Carolyn Johnson and Barbara Camic for stepping up to help me while Pastor Judy recovered from her wrist surgery.


Thursday May 17th at 7pm was an information night for Holy land & religious travel. I am now working on the Oberammergau Passion Play in Germany for 2020. This very special Passion Play has been performed in the village of Oberammergau for the past 380 years. The Play is only performed every ten years. E.O. offers the best Christian travel destinations.


Sunday May 20th we celebrated with a special service at Mercer Park in Baldwinsville with a balloon launch and picnic.


Sunday June 10th is “The Blessing of The Animals Service.” Pastor Judy has been working on this very wonderful event to make it very special for all the pets of our congregation and the community.


Sunday June 17th is Father’s Day.


On Sunday June 24th come join us as we welcome several new members to the church.  We will also celebrate high school and college graduations for several young members.


The UMW is working so very hard on their primary mission. The New-to-You and school-house has produced amazing sales so far this year. The women of our church work very hard to make this mission possible. For more information of the missions of our UMW, please contact Carolyn Johnson, UMW President

The E.J. Thomas Cluster UMM is still working hard on our commitment to our local veterans through the Cpl. Kyle R. Schneider Foundation. Money is being raised to continue funding the companion & service dogs for our vets.  A mission project with “The Road” is also underway.   Our April monthly breakfast was a joint event with the UMW. It was great having the ladies and kids join us for breakfast.


A family fun night at the Ball Park, for a Chiefs game, is on Tuesday, July 17th at 6:35 PM. Come early for the UMM District tailgate party in the parking lot. Please bring a dish to pass, your own beverages and table settings. Free hot-dogs will be provided and cooked by UMM members.
