Rainbow Network

Since 2018 Clinton UMC has partnered with the Rainbow Network to support the community of El Cobano in rural Nicaragua in the following ways:

            *Access to medical and dental clinics

            *Clothing and shoes for community members

            *Nutrition centers and food deliveries

            *Educational opportunities

            *School supplies, backpacks, and books for primary students          

            *Education about health, sanitation, nutrition, first aid, etc.

            *Empowerment and love through a strong relationship.

All of this is made possible by our congregation’s 3-year commitment of $20,000 a year to support the people of El Cobano. In this third year of that commitment, $10,000 has been funded so far. Through November 1, we’re asking for your help to raise the final $10,000. 

This video features Dr. Will Moore, a member of the Rainbow Network board and son-in-law of Mike and Lois Miller of our congregation. He shares about the Rainbow Network’s ministry and his commitment to it. I encourage you to listen to his powerful message! We’ll share updates on our El Cobano partnership in upcoming weeks. Learn more about the Rainbow Network at www.RainbowNetwork.org

Please prayerfully consider helping us reach our 2020 goal during this special offering opportunity that ends November 1. Make checks out to “Clinton UMC” with a notation of “Rainbow Network.” You can also contribute online at www.clintonumc.net/give.   

Blessings to you all,

Building Project Update

Base for the new Worship Hall has been excavated and the rock fill is being installed and compacted.  Footings for the structural support walls and posts will be dug and concrete poured shortly.   Interior sheetrock will be installed to finish out the second floor hallway transition to the new south stairwell and all the fire doors hung over the next several days.  Immediately following that completion we’ll demolish the old stairwell and start with cutting the floor for new drain line locations… moving with steady pace now!

 

New Sermon Series

What’s it like when life seems out of balance? It may be hard to describe, but you certainly know it when you feel it! And with everything going on right now in our world, nation, community, family and personal lives… living a balanced life can be a real challenge!

You’re invited to our new sermon series called “Balancing Act!” We’ll take a look at five spiritual practices: radical hospitality, passionate worship, intentional faith development, risk-taking mission and service, and extravagant generosity. Guided by Scripture and Five Practices of Fruitful Living by UMC Bishop Robert Schnase, we’ll discover that when consistently applied, these five practices can give our lives proper balance and even help us thrive!

So, join Clinton UMC September 27 – October 25, for Sunday morning worship at 8:15 or 10:30 and the “Balancing Act.”

Virtual Sunday School is Coming!

It's time for Sunday School to start but we feel it isn't safe for us to meet in person, so we have a really fun program lined up for kids to participate in virtually!  Each Sunday at 9:30 on Facebook and this website, we will premiere a new Sunday School lesson, complete with classic Bible stories, music, prayers, crafts, experiments and more, brought to you by a whole group of fun church members that you will recognize and love!  These lessons will remain on Facebook and the webpage all week until Friday afternoon, so you can watch when it's most convenient for you and you watch again and again all week long!  We look forward to hearing your comments about the new program!

Christmas in August?

Socks and Underwear - Funds Needed!

No need to go to the store and buy socks and underwear for kids this year during a Covid crisis!  We are once again helping the less fortunate kids who go to the Bright Futures Back-to-School fair later this month!  But we need your help with monetary donations.  And because they need the money soon, we ask that you make your donations on or before July 19th!  Make checks payable to the church (separate check from regular giving) and mark you check for SOCKS!  Thanks for your continued support for the kids in our community!

Construction Update 6-9-20

Work continues with most demolition complete.  A new staircase is being put in next to the gym wall and footings have been dug for it.  The old windows from the original church are getting opened up for our expanded view from what will become our upper gathering area looking down into the Green Room!
