Recently, a tragic fire has made a South Meriden home uninhabitable, as a son of the home's residents died nearby. Our church is supporting the collection of donations being organized by Holly Wills on behalf of the Meriden Council of Neighborhoods this Saturday in our fellowship hall, 9AM-12PM Noon. We appreciate the further help of the South Meriden Volunteer Fire Department to help raise funds and awareness of this important need in our community.

For more information on volunteering and donations, please email Holly Wills at:

United Methodist Men, here's your chance to get together in a joyful and positive way. At 9AM this Saturday January 19th, your're invited to a "separate checks" breakfast at Tom's Place on Main Street in Meriden. The order of the day: good food, good fellowship, some prayers, and a discussion of what it means to be Christian men. Feel free to invite men who might be interested in men's church fellowship. Our hope is to make this a monthly event at various places that is fun, fulfilling, and filled with the power of being God's church. Get ready to order up!
You can have the same old kind of year, doing the same old things.
Or, you can find another way.
Our church offers all kinds of people ways to re-engage and revive their faith, so that our faith can change not only our lives, but God's world.
It starts every Sunday at 10AM, with our joyful worship, and warm fellowship.
It grows during the week as we walk through our community in prayer each Monday, with brown bag lunch discussions afterwards. It continues during the week as we pray together for God's possibilities.
It brings us into circles of friends at our Faith Groups every Wednesday at 5 and 7 PM, and as we bring faith to our families during the week.
It puts us in touch with people, in our community, and around God's world, who need the healing touch of God.
We have events throughout the year that make a difference in people's lives.
We hope that you will choose a fresh approach to your life, through faith, that will help you to grow in new ways, and to find real joy in life, whether life is perfect or not.
Let us know how you'd like to begin. Or, just start. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Gifts are lining up in our Clark Room, ready to be part of our annual Adopt-A-Gift dinner and celebration at Meriden's ShelterNow residence - a moment to bring joy and hope to our sisters and brother who need to find the next right step to wholeness in their lives. It is a wonderful event, and we thank Mary Barker, Linda Kirk, who do such a great job putting this project together, and all of our church members who are supporting it with their kind donations and helping hands. If you'd like to contribute or lend a helping hand on the evening of December 23rd, please contact, Mary, Linda, or Pastor John. What a friend we have when people act like Jesus!
Prayer is a powerful tool of faith to open our eyes to God's possibilities in our lives, and in God's world. We are resuming our community prayer walks, which we invite church members, friends, and community residents to join us in, so that we may seek together God's will for us as people who can bring forth God's fruits of faith in this place.
Pastor John will organize these prayer walks, which take off from the church sanctuary steps at noon on Mondays, as weather and appointments permit. Pastor John has been continuing prayer walks already, and invites everyone to join us in them. After our prayer walks, you are invited to join us in the Clark Room for a brown bag luncheon and discussions, using our holy conversation guidelines to make them safe and fruitful.
A menu option on our office telephone menu will give you the latest status on prayer walks. We look forward to you joining us - and to inviting others into them!
