THE GARDEN OF LOVE YIELDS VEGETABLES &

RIDES TO WORSHIP

Peggy, Peggy, Quite Contrary, how does your garden grow?With bright red tomatoes and unearthed potatoes and green string beans all in a row. Peggy Brenneke’s garden of love bears much produce which she gently harvests and brings to sell at First UM Church. All proceeds will go to support Wheels 2 Worship. Her late husband, Chuck, was a faithful driver to many who could not get to church otherwise; so she has elected to support this new ministry in his memory. Thank you Peggy for your labor of love and generosity.

Marshfield: Wesley United Methodist Church Building Destroyed by Fire

A fire ravaged the Wesley United Methodist Church in Marshfield on Sunday, September 2, destroying the historic 137 year old building. No one was inside the church at the time the fire started. Please pray for the Wesley congregation, their leadership and their pastor, Lourdes Magalhaes, as they move through this tragic and difficult time. Where possible, please give your congregation a chance to contribute to the restoration and rebuilding effort. We encourage people to give through their local church offering by writing a check to their local church and putting Fund 7999 Marshfield: Wesley Fire in the check memo.
