Following in the historic tradition of acolyting over the centuries, all 4th through 6th grade youth are welcome to serve in this capacity during the 9:15 am worship between World Communion Sunday (the first Sunday in October) and the last Sunday of June each year.
In addition to lighting and extinguishing the altar candles, acolytes in our church are also assistants to the pastor on Communion and Baptism Sundays. They ring the bell prior to worship, present the prayer request book to the pastor prior to the intercessory prayer, and distribute and receive the offering plates.
Regular meetings are held usually twice a month. With assistant Debrah Hickman, the pastor oversees the work and recreation of our acolytes group. The year ends with some kind of fun activity (usually a pool party as well as a day at an amusement park). Contact Pastor Doug at email@example.com for details.
Eve Circle is a varied age group of women who study the word of God. We support each other through fellowship, encouraging each other through our stages of life. Some of the activities we participate in are decorating the church for Christmas, honoring our Senior members, organizing the Easter Egg Hunt, and providing the Pastor Appreciation Brunch. We also serve the community through missions. You may contact Lynn Heiss or Terri Smith if you would like more information. We look forward to welcoming new members to join us as we serve the Lord.
United Methodist Men
(connect with us on facebook!)
An officially chartered chapter of the men’s organization affiliated with the UM Church, our UMM group meets monthly on the third Monday, 7:15 PM for mutual support and ministry through our local church. The purpose is to provide a forum for men to discover ways to use their gifts in service to Christ. The Mantua chapter hosts several regular projects throughout the year, including spring and fall clean-up days in our cemetery, the annual craft fair, occasional hoagie sales, and out-of-state mission trips. Men of all ages are welcome. For more information, contact our church office at 856-486-2711 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
