Make it a family table. If you need help with ideas, supplies, props, or would like to book a table, contact Margaret Dean.

UMW Boutique Coming This Fall

Have you missed what used to be our semi-annual UMW boutique? You know, the place you go to get the best Christmas gifts, be they crafts or goodies? Well, it's back! This year's boutique will be held Oct. 9 and 10. UMW women are looking for your input, contrubutions, and support. For more information, contact Cherie Korando.

Sign Up For Amazon Smile!

There is a new way to donate to Mesa Verde United Methodist Church–by shopping with Amazon. When you sign up, Amazon donates a portion of what you spend to our church! It costs nothing and signing up is simple.

Go to https://smile.amazon.com and sign in using your existing Amazon user name and password.  If you’re not already an Amazon shopper you can create them. You will log on and be able to choose MVUMC as your charity. Choose us by typing in Mesa Verde United Methodist Church. If you use the standard amazon.com link your shopping will not benefit MVUMC, so be sure to change your bookmark or favorites link to https://smile.amazon.com.

You will be on the full Amazon.com website, but in the upper left corner of your screen it will say, “Supporting Mesa Verde United Methodist Church.” Now you can support the church simply by buying what you want online!

Bible Study Led by Pastor Brent

Pastor Brent leads a weekly (more or less) Bible study on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 am. Everyone is invited. We  meet in the conference room in the Administration Building.

Sunday School

Sunday School children should go into church first thing for a Moments with Children. Then they will go to their classes.

Prayer Request Cards

Green prayer request cards are available on Sunday mornings in the seat pockets of the chairs. You are welcome to fill out your prayer requests in order that they may become a part of the prayers of the community. Your prayer requests can also be communicated with the office in this way so that they will be included in the prayer chain.

Flower Chart

The new flower chart is up in the narthex. Please sign up to put flowers on the altar. Fresh cut flowers from your own garden (no, you can't pick the neighbors' blooms) are welcome!

What's New

Relive our Lord's entry into Jerusalem and the anticipated joy of his resurrection on Palm Sunday, Mar. 29. The kids will process into service bearing palm branches, celebrating Jesus' entry into Jerusalem. After second service, there will be a potluck supper for all and an Easter egg hunt for the little ones! Sign up on the patio or contact the church office. For more information, see Allison Rudalevige.


What's Doing

It’s that time again – our annual Birthday Luncheon, held Apr. 18 this year! Twelve delightfully decorated tables, each representing a month of the year, and sometimes an extra table or two with additional themes. It’s a delicious luncheon followed by entertainment. A tradition at Mesa Verde UMC, it’s an event you won’t want to miss! Tickets tend to sell out early, so be sure to get yours ASAP! For more information, contact Margaret Dean or the church office.

 

What's Up

The Peace, Environment and Justice Team encourages everyone who is able to participate in another community outreach activity in celebration of Earth Day. We will volunteer in an Orange County CoastKeeper beach cleanup in Huntington Beach Apr. 11. Church family members of all ages are welcome. Come and help clean up our beaches and oceans while enjoying the fresh air and fellowship. For details, contact Carlene Reuscher or the church office.


What Else

Save the dates of April 25-27 when internationally known author and church consultant Dr. Kennon Callahan will be with us for a three-day consultation. Dr. Callahan is the author of Twelve Keys to an Effective Church and many other helpful books for churches and church leaders. He will engage us in several conversations over the course of the three days to help us plan and vision for the future of Mesa Verde UMC. This event is open to all.
