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.


Sufficient Grace is requesting donations of rolled fleece blankets 50″ x 60″, gently used children’s books, men and women’s deodorant, and individually wrapped bars of bath soaps. Place donations in the Sufficient Grace receptacle at the church.


Bring all boxes of gently used clothing and household items to church by Sunday Oct. 16th.   The list of urgent needs includes:

United Methodist Women will again be selling delicious Terri Lynn Nuts.  The items all come in resalable 1# bags unless otherwise indicated.    The proceeds of the sale support annual mission work both locally, and in other parts of the country.  We will do our best to have the nuts available to you before the Thanksgiving holiday.  Your previous salesperson will soon be contacting you, or if your salesperson is no longer available, you will be assigned a new one.  You may also call Cindy Neff at 740-837-0762 or any UMW member for assistance.  Thank you very much for supporting this endeavor.
