One Wednesday per month several Crown Heights United Methodist Ladies and visitors gather with Pastor Trina North to spend a Ladies Day Out together. We have fun going out to eat at a different restaurant each month. We are usually finished with lunch by 2:00 p.m. All are welcome!
Dinner for Eight
Our Church gathers quarterly by inviting eight people to dinner at member’s home. Each home is assigned a mission project; i.e., sending personal cards to our homebound, making cookies for our college students, preparing hygiene kits to donate to Skyline Ministires. We get together for fellowship and fun.
United Methodist Women
Our United Methodist Women’s circles are always looking for ways to serve and support one another. Some groups love studying a devotional book together. Others simply look forward to eating out together, sharing the highs and lows of their Christian journeys. Their annual Rummage Sale raises an incredible amount of money for missions each year. They honor our graduating seniors with a reception in May, and often participate in special efforts at Skyline Urban Ministries, from collecting back packs and school supplies to helping children get the right sizes for their school uniforms.
Monthly Movie Nights
Elizabeth is our local expert on classic movies. She hosts a different movie each month, complete with an introduction, popcorn and drinks. Watch the Trumpet newsletter for updates!
Mission Trip to Sunflower, Mississippi
December 26-30, 2017 to Sunflower, Mississippi
Five years ago, Rev. Veronica Pritchard was appointed to a tiny church in Sunflower, MS. She was there to close the doors; they were just too small. But when she arrived, Veronica saw the needs of the poor community surrounding the church and got to work instead. She helped transform her church into a center where mission teams come to work on the homes in their area. Veronica says, “Delta Grace is a year-round mission hub that provides beds, showers, kitchen facilities, and mission opportunities for mission teams. Teams work on homes of many who have lost hope and do not know what tomorrow brings. Our purpose is to match mission teams with mission work within an hour’s drive. Our prayer is that the volunteers will transform the lives of those they serve and in turn have their lives transformed.” Check out their website at deltagrace.org.
Crown Heights UMC is sent 11 mission team members to go to Sunflower, Mississippi. We left Tuesday December 26, and returned Saturday December 30, 2017. We drove to Mississippi and stay in the Delta Grace dorms. We did light construction work for three days before returning home.
