  • Women's Prayer Breakfast

    The United Methodist Women will be sponsoring a monthly women's prayer breakfast.  It will be held the Thursday after the third Sunday each month at 8:00 AM in the fellowship hall.  This month it will be held on August 23.  This is open to all women of the church.  Please come and bring a friend for fellowship and breakfast to start your day!


  • Backpack Ministry

    We have teamed up with Morris Chapel Southern Methodist Church in support of their "Back Pack" Ministry for students in need at Pomaria-Garmany Elementary School.  This helps to ensure that children in need have food over the weekend.  For the month of August, we are collecting individual cups of Apple Sauce.


  • Pomaria Food Bank

    We continue to collect items for the Pomaria Food Bank.  Please consider picking up a few extra items when you're out doing your grocery shopping.  Our continued support of this ministry is greatly appreciated.  All donations can be placed in the purple tub in the vestibule of the church.  They are currently in great need of canned goods.
