Welcome

We are the McCormick United Methodist Church (MUMC). Our congregation loves God and cares for one another. We share in each other’s joys and provide mutual support and prayers during tough times. We have fun as we work together doing the work of God. We reach up to God and reach out to our friends and neighbors both near and far.

We welcome visitors with the same love and energy. The members of MUMC care about you and your well-being. We want to get to know you, your joys, your concerns, your prayer needs and your spiritual gifts.

We invite you to look around our site, be sure to look at the sermons, pictures, missions and calendar. Then go to the "PLAN A VISIT" link above and join us at either the 8:30 AM or 11:00 AM service on Sunday!

JOHN DE LA HOWE FISHING PROGRAM
FISH FRY! 
Wednesday night, May 18, was the final event in this spring's Fishing Program at John de la Howe School.  We had 16 boys in the program at various times during the spring.  We concluded the program with a fish fry using only fish caught by the boys and volunteers.  There was lots of fish and a great cake.  After the dinner Mr/Mrs Jerry Ehmke presented each of the boys with their own fishing rod and reel.  Many thanks again for the help from the Church from Gerry Nettles, Dan Tutt and Mike Sartain.  For more photos, go to http://mccormickumc.org/childrens-activities

ATRIUM LOOKING BEAUTIFUL

What's Happening

HOW TO AVOID PROBATE COURT
JUNE 5 3PM
Most of what happens during probate is essentially clerical.  The vast majority of cases have no conflict, no contesting parties, legal research , or the need for other lawyer's skills.  But for some, probate can be expensive with long court proceedings in which the will is reviewed, made public and determined to be valid or invalid. 

Avoid all this by being prepared.  Come join us Sunday, June 5th, at 3PM  for an informative meeting presented by our own Probate Court Judge, Kitty Butler.  Please call the church office to reserve your seat. 852-2394

GREEN JACKET BASEBALL GAME

Hope to have a really good turnout for this "Thirsty Thursday" fun event! 

When was the last time someone really listened to you? We're talking about that undistracted, full-attention kind of listening. That's one of the ways Stephen Ministers care for others. We need more Stephen Ministers here at McCormick United Methodist Church to care for those who are making that long journey through the valley of a life crisis. We plan to train this coming fall.  Will you consider serving in this way? For more information about Stephen Ministry, contact Beverly Western, Phil Bailey, Sundee Luedecke, Ronnie Kidd, Kay Wood or Pastor Paul Wood  at the church office.  Check out the Stephen Ministry website!!        www.stephenministry.org

3SG
Men, what is 3SG?  As guys, we like code.  It’s cool.  It sounds like a secret.  Ok, but what does the code mean?  It is a cord of 3 strands.  If you take two pieces of twine, rope or leather and braid it together, it works; but if you take three pieces, then you can create some real strength.  So what?  It would be great to get men together in groups of three (3 Strand Groups) to share issues regularly.  Questions?  Ask Bruce Motsinger, Don Tummons, Bob Struck or Jack Toland.
