HomeFront Day 2014 - May 3

HomeFront Day 2014
 burly handyman  HomeFront Day is an opportunity to come out and stretch your faith by providing a caring and helping hand to those in need in our own community.  The Wethersfield United Methodist Church will again participate in HomeFront Day 2014 on Saturday, May 3rd.

HomeFront is a community-based home repair program that helps homeowners and community centers who are financially unable to maintain their homes/facilities. Repairs are made by sponsoring teams of volunteers at no cost to the recipients. This makes the 3rd HomeFront day that WUMC has participated in.

Eyes to the Sky

“Eyes to The Sky”
Steeple Repair and Painting Campaign
April 1st – July 1st

Think of our steeple...

If you had to describe it just one word – what would that word be?  
Bright, shining, inspiring, beacon or instead is your word leaning more toward the category of chipped, cracked, pealing, rotting, damage or just plain broken.

It has been over 20 years since our steeple was repaired and painted, and this past winter has taken its toll. In the slide show movie below, you can see examples of the damage: exposed raw wood, rotting and cracked boards, nails falling out and chipped paint.

The current price to repair the years of damage is $20,000.00. However, the church is fortunate in that an anonymous donor has generously stepped out in faith and offered to match all donations, dollar for dollar, up to 50% of the project total.

This is where we need your help! Our Goal is to raise just $10,000.00  so that work can begin by July 1st. The work involved will be the scraping, repair and painting of the church's steeple and portico.

This is an exciting time in the life of our church; we ask that you prayerfully consider supporting this important project to bring honor and glory to God’s house.

Done in a Day - May 31 & June 21

Done in a Day
May 31st and June 21st
The “Done in a Day” program is part of our conference’s disaster response effort to Hurricane Sandy. We are in the recovery stage of the relief work and will be for a few more years. There is much work to be done. People’s homes are still uninhabitable and the people need our help! Not everyone can take a week off to go help with the recovery effort but many of us can dedicate one Saturday to this effort. The “Done in a Day” program’s slogan is “Engaging Volunteers in Sandy Recovery One home, One family, One day at a time”. Our proximity to the land area affected by Hurricane Sandy makes this a perfect way to put our faith in action to help those in great need. nyac-doneinaday-162px 
Stop by the Mission bulletin board to read more about our conference’s Hurricane Sandy Relief effort. The church has reserved two Saturdays to send teams down to Long Island to help out. You would need to be at least 14 years of age and have completed 9th grade to volunteer. Men, women, and youth of all skill sets are encouraged to volunteer, there is all types of work to be done. The two dates we hope to be sending volunteers are May 31st and June 21st. There is a sign-up sheet on the Community Connections Board in the hallway leading into the FLC.

Beth Moore Study - Mar. 24 - Jun. 16

Beth Moore Daniel

Daniel: Lives of Integrity, Words of Prophecy by Beth Moore

Starts Mar. 24 to Jun. 16 (twelve sessions)

Morning class: 9-10:30 a.m.

Evening class: 7-8:30 p.m.

You are invited to join the ‘Word’ly Women Small group Bible study.
A new study will be starting on March 24th thru June 16th (no class May 26th). This is a 12 week study that can also be used as two 6 week studies…so if 12 weeks is too long a commitment….you can opt to come for the first 6 weeks or the last 6 weeks!

We will meet on Mondays. The morning class meets from 9:00—10:30 a.m. and the evening class meets from 7:00—8:30 p.m. Everyone will receive a workbook which costs $15 (the money is collected the first class). Don’t let the cost prevent you from signing up…we can work something out.


Daniel: Lives of Integrity, Words of Prophecy by Beth Moore Join Beth in a faith-building study of prophecy and learn how to live with integrity in today's self-absorbed society. The prophet Daniel faced unbelievable pressures to compromise his faith, to live in a hostile culture, and to confront temptations and threats. Today, believers in Jesus Christ face many of the same trials.

This Old Testament Bible study falls in two parts:
Part One: Daniel chapters 1-6 examines Daniel's life and the pressures he faced.
Part Two: Daniel chapters 7-12 covers the prophecies from Daniel through the second coming of Christ.
