Monthly Announcements – August 30, 2015:
Wesley Theological Seminary Interns
We are blessed to have Sarah Elliott returning to serve with us for a second year. Sarah is a Masters of Divinity student and a certified candidate for ordained ministry in the Baltimore-Washington Conference of the United Methodist Church. Candy Fosta serves as her Lay Learning Partner.
We are blessed to have a second intern joining us this year, Veronica Beckley. Veronica is a Masters of Divinity student and ordained elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church serving in the Washington Annual Conference. Susan Howley will be serving as her Lay Learning Partner.
Please join Pastor Sherri as she prays that these will be fruitful relationships for all involved.
September Preaching Series
Get ready for an exciting preaching series in September from the UUMC clergy. Each clergy person will be preaching from a different scripture on the theme “Many Members, One Body”. We are blessed that God has provided us with several persons to offer clergy support, each with different gifts, but all members of the body of Christ serving the Lord at UUMC. You don’t want to miss this preaching series.
Football Parking Begins (beginning September 5)
If you are interested in volunteering for the parking ministry, please see the bulletin insert from Kenny Theodos or go to our website. The first UMD home football game of the season is September 5th against Richmond.
