Blood Pressure Screening is changed to Sunday, Jan 31st.
Plan to have your blood pressure checked by our Faith Community Nurse, Donna Thompson. She will be available after both services.
This Sunday is the fifth Sunday of the month which means we have a special offering to support the Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children and Youth. Due to your generosity in 2015, our church-wide contribution to the homes was $18,749.46 which was the second highest among churches in the Lexington district. Wonderful!
Ash Wednesday is February 10th.
All campuses will be together at our downtown location for our service at 6PM. If you would like to come for dinner beforehand, it is $5 per person / $20 max per family. Dinner begins at 5PM. RSVP – 233-0545 by Feb 8th is needed.
