On Sunday, September 10th, DeBows UMC will observe Back to Church Sunday. This is more than just joining with churches across the nation, which observe this Sunday in early September each year, but also an acknowledgement that the timing coincides with children and youth in our community preparing for another school year. We believe that education is foundational to a healthy society and should be afforded to all to the best of our abilities. We also believe that participation in the life of the church is a valuable component of a well rounded education. DeBows UMC would love to be part of that learning experience within our community.
With this in mind, we cordially invite everyone to come join us on Sunday, September 10th at 10:00am for Back to Church Sunday. All children and youth are invited to bring their school backpacks. There will be a “Blessing of the Backpacks” as part of the worship service. We look forward to seeing you and feel free to invite a friend!
On Sunday, August 6th, we were treated to some Bluegrass Gospel during the offertory. Enjoyed a wonderful rendition of “I’m Using My Bible for a Roadmap”. Thanks to our band members: Roger, guitar; Bree, mandolin; Zach, bass; Jim, banjo & vocals; Judy, harmonica; Jim, fiddle; and our Music Director, Grayce, vocals. Well done!
DeBows UMC welcomes Rev. Lawrence “Wren” Hillis to our community of faith. Pastor Wren will begin his ministry at DeBows on Sunday, July 2nd, with a Communion Service at 10am.
