The altar flowers are doing God’s work in the world. We want to thank Busy Bee Florist in East Greenwich for providing the always- beautiful flowers on our altar and the people within our church family who sponsor them. Following the 10:00 service, these arrangements are often delivered to church members who are not able to attend. The flowers are a tangible and lovely reminder to people that they are in our thoughts and prayers. If you are interested in sponsoring the altar flowers, please sign the book in the Narthex or contact Cheryl in the office. If you would like to deliver the flowers to a member, please speak to Steve or Leslie Huikko or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The EGUMC Volunteers in Mission is an intergenerational group comprised of adults and High School youth. The Volunteers in Mission traveled to John’s Island, South Carolina during February school vacation week. The Rural Mission, Inc. was started by five rural United Methodist Churches in the Sea Islands south of Charleston, South Carolina during the mid 1960’s to meet the needs of the migrant worker community and residential aged and poor of this area. Today’s issues are multiple and in direct consequence of poverty, illiteracy and little public transportation. Our focus is on housing repair. Our volunteer group raises the funds for materials and provides the labor to complete reconstruction and repairs. The mission has been successful, educational and rewarding.
