Summer Worship Hours
            Our summer schedule is in effect.  Sunday worship will be held at 8:30am and 9:30am.  There will be NO 10:00am service for the summer.  Also, we will not be having our Saturday Contemporary Worship services for July, August or September. 

Saturday Contemporary Worship
            Our Saturday Contemporary Worship service will resume in October. This monthly worship is filled with more contemporary music and will be full of good energy.  This service was originally designed for those who cannot attend worship on Sunday mornings, but of course, everyone is welcome to attend.  We hope you'll come and experience this vibrant service and experience the presence of the Holy Spirit!
Volunteers Needed!
                Prepare for PLARN ….. at the Seymour United Methodist.  What in the world is PLARN?  It’s recycled grocery bags which are cut and tied together to form plastic yarn to be crocheted into mats for the homeless!  We are looking for both youth and adults from HUMC to volunteer for a fun day of plarning … crochet-ers are especially welcome.  For more information or to express an interest, see Brian Kweder.   Everyone is invited!  Pizza will be provided!

An Invitation to Serve

            We are inviting you to join the Sunday School Staff  to share a Bible story or two with our youngsters followed by a hands-on craft and/or a cut and paste activity one Sunday a month.  All materials will be available to you that morning; no preparation required just the love of God and the willingness to share His word in child-like language.  About 30 minutes only one Sunday a month.  It is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face!  If you are interested in this opportunity, please see Donelle during coffee hour.
