"God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another."
- 1 Peter 4:10
Thank you to all who helped or donated to the Harvest of Talents on October 27th. This year's Harvest of Talents was a huge success raising almost several thousands for missions. It would not have been possible without all those who attended. The funds will go a long way towards helping those in need.
UMW Rummage/Bake Sale
The annual UMW Rummage/Bake Sale went without a hitch Oct 11th-13th. Members of the United Methodist Women stacked, sorted, hauled, baked, served, counted, folded, labeled, and packed up hundreds of donations brought in for the sale. A huge thank you goes out to everyone who donated items, time, and effort to this event and made it such a success. The Rummage Sale raised $3,100! An extra thank you goes to Kathleen Renno and Naomi White for their great leadership and endurance.
F4: Free Family Fun Fest
August 25th, 2012
Thank you to the Evangelism Committee and all the volunteers who made this year's Free Family Fun Fest possible. We had a fantastic turnout of approximately 300 people. Everyone enjoyed the free food, fun, and friendship. The Dunk Tank was a special favorite. For pictures, check out the album "1st Annual TCUMC FREE Family Fun Fest" on our Facebook page.
Taylor Chapel Vacation Bible School
Big Book Bible School was an original program based on classic Bible stories. The five evenings were packed with prayer, music, snacks, games, skits, and stories that helped captivate and ignite the creative energy of children for Taylor Chapel and the community. On Thursday evening, families and friends were invited to enjoy celebration treats and to watch their children perform Bible stories.
