The Giving Tree will be in the Narthex during November and December.  There will be slips of paper that you can take for donations of non-perishable goods.  We use these gifts to help families in our community.  The deadline for these items is December the 15th.  Monetary gifts are welcome also.  This is a great Outreach Mission for our community.  Thank you, Becky Boysel and Jeri Severt


Thursday, November 3rd South Charleston United Methodist Church will be offering Surviving The Holidays. This presentation has been created by GriefShare.

We will start at 6:00 pm and meet until 8:00 pm. There will be refreshments, followed by a short video and discussion. Materials are provided at no cost.

As one of the facilitators I would like to invite anyone who is struggling with grief as the holidays approach. There is no time limit on grief. This may be your first year or perhaps it has been several years since losing your loved one. You are welcome to attend.

Call the church at (937)-462-8043 if you plan to attend. The number of participants are limited due to space constraints.

UMCOR Sunday – March 27th

As followers of Jesus Christ, we are called to respond with extravagant grace. Through the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) we are able to make a difference in the lives of communities and individuals whose lives have been upset by storms, wars, fires, displacement and climate change. This offering is used for UMCOR’s “cost of doing business,” allowing UMCOR to keep the promise that 100% of any gift to a specific UMCOR project will go towards that project and not administrative cost.

UMCOR equips local churches, annual conferences and nonprofit organizations to be in mission with their communities and to respond to those left most vulnerable during challenging times. Also, UMCOR doesn’t just respond to the emergency for the short term. Working with local organizations, churches in the community and United Methodist volunteers, UMCOR builds relationships and helps communities rebuild, in the years following a disaster.

UMCOR responds to U.S. and international disasters, addresses diseases and poverty, assists refugees and immigrants, provides clean water and works to reduce hunger. UMCOR would be unable to do this work without your support. From training Conference Disaster Coordinators and Early Response Teams to keeping the office lights on, the UMCOR Sunday special offering equips the organization to respond quickly to disasters.

Your sustaining gifts on UMCOR Sunday, March 27th, lay the foundation for UMCOR to share God’s love with communities everywhere.


Grief Share will be held on Thursday evenings from 6:00 – 8:00 beginning April 8th and running through July 1st.
