Your Weekly Update from Marceline UMC

July 12, 2021

Hello Church,

I want to start by saying a big thanks to everyone that supported the spaghetti dinner fundriaser for Ministries in Linn County! You can see a couple of pictures in our parting shot at the end of the email. We raised about $1100-1200 for Ministries in Linn County. I'll be putting a final number together this week.

Coming up on Saturday we'll have another distribution from Convoy of Hope! I'm expecting we'll be back here at the church by noon. If you, or someone you know can make use of what is coming, come on by Saturday afternoon.

We've hit the quieter part of Summer for the church, which means I hope that you are having a good Summer off doing all the things that you're doing, and I look forward to seeing you when you get back.

Check later in the email for info about Celebrate Recovery, camps, and an updated list of devotions and prayer resources.

Our parting shot for this week is from the spaghetti dinner. Take a look at the end of the email to see more.

Remember you can forward these emails on to folks that might be interested and they can subscribe to our email list to stay up-to-date on things.

Have a great week!

Pastor John

We'd planned for a lot of people and our great volunteers we had all day did a lot of work to get things ready....including putting together all the little dessert boxes. We served just over 100 meals and made $1100-1200. We're looking forward to doing this again. Below you can see what we served, unfortuately you can't eat this one.
