In-Church service: We are meeting in the Social Hall at 11:00am on Sunday!

UMCOR:  UMCOR {United Methodist Committee On Relief] is asking for any and all help [$$] for the victims of recent weather disasters.  At the Backyard Church this Sunday we discussed it and are suggesting a two-prong effort:  individuals/families are invited or en-couraged to donate what they can and, additionally, we will bring it up at the next Council meeting and see if as a congregation we want to add to whatever is collected.  You may send checks made out to Nelson UMC –but with UMCOR on the memo line!! – to the church address or you may drop off your donation in the narthex.  No deadline is given.   Thanks! 

HELP WANTED:  We need four cleaning teams [I have two so far] for wiping off the tops and edges of the Social Hall tables and the backs and seats of the chairs.  We are trying to secure paid help for mopping floors and cleaning the bathrooms.  If you have a “team” and will help, contact Pastor Liz.  Good ol’ Pine-Sol!  Who knew??

CHARGE CONFERENCE via Zoom, Wednesday, Oct. 28, 7:30 pm in the Social Hall.
