This is for individuals and families whose schedule doesn’t permit them to worship at the times of the worship services.  Brian will be serving Communion. You will receive Communion and stay to pray or meditate for as long as you want.  This is open to anyone from any of the churches.

We will also offer Communion at each Christmas Eve service.

Ithaca UMC Parents of Sunday School children and others who are interested:  Please sign up using the sheet on the bulletin board and choose a month or two to help teach Sunday School for the upcoming 2017 year.  We need two volunteers each month – one for the younger kids and one for the older kids.  All materials are provided, so please take a turn to share the responsibilities among members.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Hannah Anderson by email at hannahmt@hotmail.com.  We really appreciate all the volunteers we can get to help our children grow in Sunday School.  God Bless!
