Family Matters - a sermon series that focuses on marriage, parenthood, single parents, blended families, relatives, general relationships and the notion that family is the backbone of life.
Join us for this in-depth sermon series on September 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd.
Did you grow up at Middletown United Methodist Church? For decades, many children and youth enjoyed church life here. They sang in the Cherub Choir, or they may have been a Rainbow Pal. Were you one of them? Dedicated Sunday School teachers taught you your first Bible lessons. (Who could forget R.C. Merten’s Hi-5 class for 5th graders?) Growing up, you may have gone on a youth choir tour with Nancy Tinnell or been a part of the youth group under a youth pastor you just loved.
Whatever your experience, we are inviting you to a Homecoming Sunday service on October 14th at 11:00 a.m. Our mission for ministry to children and youth has not changed, and we want to celebrate those of you who were a part of it during those important decades. We will invite you to stand and be recognized in the service and offer a reception for you following worship.
Our pianist, Vernon Cherrix, first started this program in September of 2016 to celebrate his 20 years of piano ministry at MUMC. Last year, he had another program featuring his wife, Nancy, and our organist, Kevin Vest.
This September 9th, at 3 pm will be the third program and will feature both classical and sacred music that you don't want to miss!
This program will feature organist Kevin Vest, flutist Susan Vonhoven, violinist Frank Cora, and pianists Nancy and Vernon Cherrix. They will play solo pieces, as well as ensemble pieces.
