World Relief Triad

INTERESTED IN BLESSING A REFUGEE FAMILY?

 

JUMC Mission’s Committee is partnering with World Relief Triad to help set up homes for refugees coming to High Point and Winston Salem. Do you feel lead to make a difference in the lives of refugees & immigrants by welcoming the stranger? Then I’d like to invite you to join us and volunteer with World Relief. We would work as a team and commit to setting up 3-4 homes over the span of a year. All the furnishings are provided by World Relief and delivered to the home at an agreed upon time. Then, our fun and work begin by organizing the home.

 

If you are unable to make a 1-year commitment but would like to volunteer for ½ day with World Relief, we also need your help organizing their new warehouse. They have workdays scheduled from 9:00 am to noon on: October 1st, November 19th & December 10th. Again, we would work as a team.

 

World Relief is a Christian humanitarian organization addressing issues of disasters, poverty,
violence, and mass displacement.

To learn more about how to get involved, please contact Lynda Thompson at: 336-307-1735 or by email:

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

Same Fellowship Different Night

Fellowship Dinners are returning, on a new night!  Starting September 11th, the Fellowship Dinners are moving from Wednesday to Sunday at 5:00pm.  


Our church has given new attention to how we do Youth Ministries, and Sunday nights are now a focal point for many of our younger families.  We already have Children’s Choir, R.O.C.K.@5 for children up to 5th grade, and Jamestown Youth Ministry for 6th through 12th grades.  Also Pastor David will start a new Sunday evening Bible Study, diving deeper into our new sermon series “The Bible Year”.  By combining dinner for our youth and their families with our Sunday Night Fellowship Dinners, we hope to have a great mix of events all on one night, giving us the opportunity for new ways to grow in our faith, share in-person fellowship, and gather together in a multi-generational meal.

Please make Sunday Night Fellowship a part of your plans!

Newsletter and Weekly Bulletin Updates

We produce our newsletter only once a month.  This publication of the newsletter covers all the events planned for the month, and a week or two into the next month.  The newsletter will be available at all the usual places; US postal service (mail), email, the website, through Facebook and Instagram and our mobile app.  If you have information relating to JUMC ministries, that you would like to post in the newsletter, contact Dana Bird at dana@jumc.org.  She will have a form to help ensure all the pertinent information is included.  You will need to have the article and information form to Dana Bird (dana@jumc.org) no later than the 28th of the month. 


We will begin emailing the newsletter through our church database in September.  As we transition over, we need to make sure your email addresses are up to date in our system.  The current email list will go away by the end of September.  To add, confirm or update your email address, we ask you to complete the form HERE.

Masks Recommended

Under the recommendations of the WNCCUMC Bishop in response to the current rise in COVID cases in our area, we are re-instating our recommendation of the wearing of masks at all large indoor gatherings including worship services. We apologize for the inconvenience but stay committed to the Wesley spirit of “doing no harm” by erring on the side of caution.



As we share this information, we must regretfully postpone the July Jubilee Covered Dish luncheon previously scheduled for this coming Sunday. Our plans for one worship service at 10am in the Sanctuary will continue as scheduled.


Office Hours

The church office closes for lunch between 1:15pm - 2:15pm Monday - Thursday.  We close on Fridays at 1:00pm. During these times, you will receive a message recording when you call and the doors will not be monitored for building access.  If you have an appointment with a staff member, that staff member will meet you at the door to let you in. There will be no one to let you inside the building unless you have an appointment.
