October 2014 Newsletter and Events

Fall is in full swing, and Watsontown United Methodist Church is taking every opportunity to live in to our mission to: know Jesus Christ, grow in Jesus Christ, and go be like Jesus Christ. The October 2014 edition of our monthly newsletter is sizzling off the press, and you may click the link –> HERE <– to read it for yourself! Each page is full chances to connect and serve with our faith community.

Perhaps you are interested in getting to know some new people or spending time with good friends on a scenic excursion? WUMC is hosting a train adventure to Jim Thorpe, PA on October 5th. Tickets cost $9 to $24 depending on which car one chooses (payable on location). A group will be car pooling from the church at 10:30AM and meet down at the train station together.October 12 will be a very special day at WUMC and in the greater Watsontown Community. On that Sunday, our 10:30AM worship service will honor and recognize the many first responders in our communities. This celebration will include a meaningful worship service followed by a light luncheon and social hour. First responders who plan to attend are asked to notify the church office so that we may prepare adequately. ALSO on October 12, the borough of Watsontown hosts the annual CROP Walk. CROP is an international movement to raise awareness for and combat hunger. This year’s CROP walk begins with registration at 1:30PM at the Watsontown Elementary School. The Walk will proceed to the Watsontown Park at 2:00PM (individuals may also arrive at the park without making this trek). No fundraising packets are required this year; instead a donation cover charge is requested of all children ($5) adults ($10) and families ($20 max). Events at the park will include a walk for kids, presentation by Kingdom Kidz Puppet Ministry, and more!

With Halloween just around the corner, Watsontown United Methodist Church invites the community to a wholesome family gathering on October 26th at 4PM. This is our annual Trunk and Treat event and provides a fun alternative and/or addition to normal trick-or-treating. Kids and families are welcome to stroll through our parking lot of decorated car trunks as volunteers hand out candy. Games, story time, refreshments, and a mission project will take place inside the WUMC class and multipurpose room. So pick out your best costume, and join the fun!

As always, we welcome you EVERY Sunday to join us for worship, prayer and study at 8:00AM (Praise Worship), 9:15AM (Sunday School), and 10:30AM (Traditional Worship). Come see what God is doing at WUMC!
