Parlor Class Invitation….
Members of the Parlor Class invite you to join us in our next book study and discussion. Scott Chrostek is one of the campus ministers who work with famed author and United Methodist pastor, Adam Hamilton at the Church of the Resurrection in Kansas City, Kansas. Rev. Chrostek was the excellent and inspiring speaker at Albion District’s annual District Day this winter. In his book, The Misfit Mission, he “shares inspiring, funny, and poignant stories from his ministry as church planter and pastor. He illustrates how people can uncover their innate passion for knowing and serving Christ, and how a church can be a transformative force in the community”. We meet at 8:30 on Sunday mornings in the parlor, reading, discussing our thoughts and opinions, while we care for one another. We have people from both worship services and we welcome you to join us too.
Several of us also have started sending cards out to those on the prayer list, or those we believe just need a word of care or encouragement. Please join us in the parlor at 9:30 on Sunday mornings, if this ministry interests you. If you have greeting cards or stamps to share, we’d be happy to utilize them, too.
Goodwill Stores are running low on furniture, household items, such as dishes, pots, pans, and small appliances. Also, they need jeans, books, and electrical items. All donations are tax deductible.
The ongoing Sunday school class in the parlor now meets at 8:30.
We are studying "6 things you should know about God." We have books available, but if you wish to join us without the book, great! Also, feel free to come whichever Sunday works into your calendar.
The Youth of our church conducted the service on February 19th. They are all naturals!
On the 2nd Wednesday of each month anyone can join us at Savory Restaurant on S. Centerville Rd. (in front of Walmart). We meet at 9:30.

First United Methodist Church hosted a banquet celebrating women on Monday, May 1st, and was served by the men’s group in Fellowship Hall of the church. Festivities began at 6 p.m. with displays from various local vendors. After the meal the women were given a program from Zu’s and Zo’s, a new local Sturgis business, about European and American clothing designs, and newest line of children’s clothing.
