Communion this Sunday!

This Sunday is Communion!  Please make sure you have some kind of drink (juice, water, sweet tea, Dr. Pepper) and some type of bread (loaf of sourdough, hamburger bun, waffle) so that you can have Communion at home.
Our Communion Rail Offering this month is for UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief.  They support local disaster relief efforts.  You can give by going to our giving portal and selecting “McKinney Special Offerings” on the dropdown menu and writing “UMCOR” in the memo.

3rd Grade Bibles

Third Graders – mark your calendar for September 20 when you will be presented with a special Bible.
