Halloween, All Saints’, and Pledges!
Your Weekly Update from Marceline UMC
Its a big week this week! Tonight is Halloween, and we’re having fun back in the back. If you want to come help decorate the boat tonight, we’ll be gathering at 1pm to decorate if you want to come help then, and then at about 4:30pm to get ready to hand out. Everything on Main Street starts at 5pm, so be sure to come out tonight!!! And we’ll still take candy donation all the way through the evening too.
This coming Sunday is a big one, so make plans to be at worship Sunday morning! Our band will be playing, our choir will be singing, and we’ll all be celebrating. We’ve also got lunch after church on Sunday too.
A couple of things in regard to that. Please bring your pledge cards on Sunday. If you don’t have one, we’ll have more here at the church. You can also make your pledge online if you would like. Just go to Online Pledge Card. During Communion we’ll have a time when we’ll give our pledges.
Below is information about our Capital Campaign. Be praying about how you can commit to this campaign as we look toward the future.
Below, take a look at some important announcements and sign-ups. We’ve got a number of different things going on this year, and new things to check out.
For All Saints’ Sunday this year, we’re remembering all those who have passed (not just this passed year either). If you have someone that you would like to remember, you can fill out a card in the Sanctuary or fill out one here online. Also, for Nov. 6, you can bring a picture, or send us one that we’ll place on an altar where we will be remembering our Saints.
Our kids and youth did a great job with the service yesterday…and they were all in costume! Take a look at the picture at the bottom of this email.

We’re really getting into a new/old tradition around here. On the 5th Sundays our kids and youth will be leading in worship. I want to say a big thanks to Andrea Vandeloecht for getting all of it together! Our kids are doing a great job, and I’m looking forward to all of the ways that they will continue share God’s word with us.
