UPCOMING WORSHIP EVENTS
Please be sure to mark your calendars and spread the word about upcoming worship opportunities at Berwyn United Methodist Church.
• Sunday, November 5: All Saints Day. Our members, friends and family who have transferred to the Church Triumphant during the past year will be remembered with the lighting of a candle for each person.
• Wednesday, November 22: Thanksgiving Eve service at Valley Forge UMC: Our Mission ConneXion churches (Berwyn, St. Matthews, Paoli, Valley Forge, Wayne) are participating in a Thanksgiving Eve service to be held at Valley Forge UMC, 1890 Valley Forge Road, on Wednesday, November 22, at 7:30 p.m. All are invited to attend this joint service.
• December Christmas Gift Alternatives:
What can you give the person who has everything, or at least who has "enough?" How about supporting a small business start-up for a former street child in Kenya or providing groceries for local families in need, after-school programing for children in Philadelphia or a winter coat for a child in Oklahoma? These and many other gifts are available through our Gift Alternatives Program, which will be available until December 24. Your tax-free donation can help meet one of these needs and provide a Christmas gift to a family member, teacher, employee or friend so they can share in the gift of giving. You may also make a special donation in your name. Gifts of any value are appreciated!
