Come as you are. Our church family varies in how we dress.
From jeans to suits, we hope you’ll join us in a worship.
 “If we clothe ourselves with humility, then no matter how we dress, we will honor and reflect Christ.”

                                                                                                              – John Bloom

Printable Lent Schedule HERE
 
The purpose of Lent is to relinquish the things that may hinder your connection with God. One approach is to focus on decluttering, which serves as a means to release both physical and spiritual burdens, allowing you to concentrate on nurturing your relationship with Him.

To maintain your focus on God while decluttering, consider incorporating prayer into your cleaning time. At WUMC, we will be emphasizing the collection of SOFT GOODS (clothing, shoes, accessories, bedding, and linens) throughout the season of Lent. Please note that we aim to limit boxed household items to the first 100 boxes, and kindly refrain from donating books. The collection will commence on Ash Wednesday and conclude on Easter Sunday.

Goods can be dropped off at the church and placed in Room 102 during normal business hours or on Sunday morning before or after the worship service. Simplify your life during Lent by cleaning out those closets.

We Are Collecting:

Clothes:

Men’s, women’s, & children’s clothes
Coats, shoes, scarves, handbags, wallets, fashion accessories, belts, backpacks, etc.
Household Textiles:

Bedding, comforters, blankets, sheets, towels, linen, tablecloths, curtains, pillows, etc.
Please gather clothes and household textiles in bags. All items must be clean and in sellable condition. Thank you for your generosity and participation in making this Lenten season meaningful.

40 Notes… In 40 Days
For Forty Days (Take Sunday’s off, or use them to catch up. There’s no mail anyway), write a
note to someone in your life. Below is a list of suggestions for note topics. Pray for the person
you want to write to first, then write a note. You can tell them why you thought of them, or you
can just keep it a secret. You can keep it simple – “I was just thinking of you and said a
prayer for you today”, or you can elaborate and write as much as you want.
