U.S. shootings draw continuing response

#935 FLOOD RELIEF: WEST VIRGINIA

How can we decide among the many agencies requesting money for flood relief? Perhaps this information will help: If you choose to donate through the United Methodist Church, 100% of your donation goes to flood relief: Not salaries, promotional costs, "overhead," etc. Monies for those were budgeted and accounted for before the storm arrived.

You may send a check to WV Conference Treasurer, P O Box 2469, Charleston, WV 25329. 
Or, you can give through your local United Methodist congregation. To ensure that monies assist West Virginia flood victims, checks or offering envelopes should carry a memo or be labeled "#935 Flood Relief."
Please give. Every single penny will help Flood Relief. Please label your gift accordingly so that it arrives at the correct destination.

I will recount the gracious deeds of the Lord,

the praiseworthy acts of the Lord, because of all that the Lord has done, and the great favor he has shown according to his mercy, according to the abundance of his steadfast love.

Isaiah 63 : 7


We are a downtown United Methodist Congregation

seeking to live out our faith through service, social justice, and witness; and striving to be a people of open hearts, open minds, and open doors.

 


We are part of the MonValley District of the West Virginia Conference.

 


Christian Education Opportunities:

Our children and youth classes meet year round, as do the adult groups.  A list of classes will help you decide on one to attend.

Under Ministries, see what Spruce Street groups do around our community.


We try to do our part in helping to stock the shelves at Scotts Run Settlement House (SRSH).

Spruce Streeters can bring food donations, personal care products, and household cleaning items to the grocery carts - each week - in Seekers Hall.

Some foods are packaged as individual cups or snack packs and nutrition bars. These are perfect for the weekend backpack program, which helps feed children who depend on school lunches or meals at child care during the week.(During the summer, some of these children do not receive school or day care lunches.) 

 


Worship

Visit us for worship ANY Sunday morning at 8:30 or 10:45.  Dress is casual to business casual. (Wear what is comfortable.)

Listen to our 10:45 service every Sunday morning on WCLG-AM 1300.
If you want a bulletin, you can request one.  We'll drop one into the mail on the Thursday before the Worship service so you can listen and follow on Sunday.

After Labor Day, we will restart our Wednesday night potluck dinners and worship services. Watch our calendar and the Sunday bulletin.


 

Sharing God's Good News

One way we have been spreading the Gospel is by radio - since 1939! These days people can find us Sunday mornings on WCLG-AM, 1300.  

People sponsor our broadcasts in honor or in memory of loved ones, friends, families, and events. For information, contact the church office: 304-292-3359.


Dedicating flowers
for our worship services adds to the beauty of our sanctuary, reminds us of the splendor of God's creation, and can commemorate events, remember loved ones, or honor family and friends.
For more information, please contact the church office   (304-292-3359) or click here  to send an email.

Just what do we say about gun violence?

Glad you asked. The risk of handgun violence to children and youth is more prevalent in the United States today than in any previous generation.
The United Methodist Church recognizes and deplores violence which kills and injures children and youth. Read the resolution.
