This is a fantastic fundraiser for the Kay Center. In 2013, we were able to raise close to $4,000. This year we hope to raise even more. Consider joining the Kay Center team or sponsoring a competitor. Call Judith Winters at 521-0293 for more information.

Winter Carnival Needs Volunteers
  [More]

As we move quickly toward Lent our annual Winter Carnival/Mardi Gras celebration will take place in the gym on Sunday, March 2, from 4-4:45 p.m. Children will enjoy simple carnival games with crazy prizes, beads will be worn, and festive music will fill the gym as we enjoy one final afternoon of frivolity before the solemn days of Lent begin. Volunteers are needed to staff the games. If you can help, please contact Sue Isbell at 521-0282 or sisbell@churchstreetumc.org.

At 4:45 p.m. we will move to the courtyard where our pastors will lead us in the burning of the palms from last year's Palm Sunday parade. The ashes from the palms will be used for our Ash Wednesday observance on March 5. Everyone, not just children, is invited to participate.

The festivities will continue at Sunday Supper in Parish Hall. To make meal reservations please call 524-3048.
