Coloma United Methodist Church
Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen - Saturday June 10, 2017
It was our turn to serve! Bonny and Joe led our team in serving 99 adults and 5 children. We served a picnic lunch of hot dogs with buns, baked beans, macaroni or potato salad, fruit (watermelon or peaches), and dessert. Thanks to all who helped to support the Soup Kitchen, through food preparation, prayers, and presence!
From the Congregational Care Team
Anyone who would like to have the pastor or a lay person visit before a surgery or during a hospitalization please contact the office so that we are aware of your wishes and the expected date and time. Office manager Beth Kraiger will pass the information along to the appropriate person. Prayer chain requests may be made in the same way. Please remember not to submit a name for the prayer chain without the person's approval.
Planting The Community Garden Begins Now!
You may be aware that our neighboring church, Coloma UCC, has provided land for a community garden over the past years. They have 14 raised beds, 7 of which are maintained by Coloma UCC, with all the produce given to the North Berrien Food Pantry. Maurice McCoy who has led this project is moving to Grand Rapids. It is hoped that between the UCC and the UMC (us), there will be church members interested in continuing this valuable outreach ministry, bringing fresh produce with its superior quality to supplement the diets of those who visit the Food Pantry. To find out how you can best contribute, use the contact button at the upper right of this page - it will get you in touch with the right folks to best use your time and effort. Thank you!
There's a new page for photos taken at celebrations and gatherings held over the past few months. And call the office if you have photos from church activities you like to see added! (Call 468-6062 or use the Contact Us button upper right of this page)

June 22 and June 23 - Joint Church Rummage Sale at Coloma UCC
All proceeds will be split equally among all participating local churches. Please wait to bring your items to the UCC church (that's the church next door, not the United Methodist Church) until June 21st, the Wednesday of the sale week. Its a matter of very little to no storage room inside any of the participating churches! A joint committee consisting of one lay person from each congregation has been formed, and volunteers from each congregation are welcome to help mark prices and set up. All are encouraged to stop by the UCC church to see and buy the items donated by area churches. Good stuff! Good causes! Good fun!

Please note - Bible Study has moved to Mondays.
