U.M.W. April Bible Verse:  1 Peter 1: 3-4: The Hope of Eternal Life   All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay.


DID YOU KNOW??? The United Methodist Church plans to present a new hymnal to General Conference for approval in 2020. We want this hymnal to represent the whole denomination, and invite all United Methodists to participate in several surveys related to hymnal content. The first survey asked for favorite and least favorite hymns (We did a little survey of favorite hymns in our Bible Study a month or so ago and you will be singing some of them in the next few weeks.)

Marlys Waters apologizes for the incomplete website. The old site crashed on February 7, 2016 (along with 7 other websites). I was only able to save part of the format. Most of the missing photos will have to be identified and uploaded individually.
