Sundays in March  |  4pm

United Women in Faith of West Ohio Conference is hosting a virtual Lenten study Sundays March 5, 12, 19, and 26 at 4pm

The study is based on Meeting Jesus at the Table by Cynthia M. Campbell and Christine Coy Fohr. The Gospels are full of stories of Jesus sharing meals with disciples, friends, even tax collectors and Pharisees. This book provides biblical insights about our own time, such as whom should we invite to Sunday dinner and who is left out and left behind in our culture today.

The study book is available to purchase at your favorite bookseller. Join the online study here: 2023 Lent Study | Westohiouwfaith (westohioumw.org)

1st Weekend in May

During the Lenten season and the beginning of Spring, many of us begin to clear the clutter from our lives. One way to help clear the clutter and help our church is to put aside items for our Rummage Sale.

Do not bring items to the church yet, because we have no place to store the items.

Only baby and children clothes that are laundered and in good condition will be accepted. Adult clothing does not sell and ends up being something that has to be sent elsewhere after the event.

Some top requested items are:  Tools/Equipment   -   Toys in good condition and clean (no stuffed animals)   -   Sports Gear   -   Furniture   -  Electronics   -   Household Items

Proceeds will go to the Restore our Windows Fund.

Rummage Sale and Bake Sale hours:
- Friday 5/5 from 9am - 4pm
- Saturday 5/6 from 9am - 1pm

Volunteers are needed to organize items and get the rummage sale ready during the week before the sale; and for clean up on Saturday - contact Sandy Holbein for details.

Donations for the bake sale are also needed - contact Sue Wright for details.


It’s a brand-new year and CT’s communication team is excited to connect you to the church in a convenient way – right on your mobile device. The app will allow you to connect with our worship services, events, the church newsletter and calendar, giving, and even the teams and groups within the church.


The Verla Moore Service Club is sponsoring a plastic recycling drive with Trex, Inc. Our goal is to collect 500 pounds of plastic by May 31, 2023. If we meet our goal, we will get a free composite bench to put outside the main door of the church.

Please note, the list does not include plastic bottles or containers!

A receptacle is in the Welcome Center and there will be reminders throughout the spring so we can meet our goal! Thank you CT!

The list of accepted recyclables is below:
  • Plastic Bags 
  • Produce bags
