Community Prayer Hour

Wednesday, November 7, 6:00 p.m. at Marshallton UMC

"He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake." Psalm 23:3

Join us for a respite from the cares of your day as we join together for a brief 45-50 minute time of prayer and music. Join us for this midweek spiritual refreshment as we gather to pray for the concerns of our world, our nation, our community, our families and any other individuals or situations that are of concern to you. We will light candles as an act of lifting up those prayers to our God.  For more information, please call our office at 302-994-7466.

UMC Lay Academy Course

Thursday, October 23 - November 27, 2018

Elkton UMC

Lay Academy Course, Social Principles (Rev. Joe Archie teaching)

This Advanced Lay Servant course is designed to help the Lay Servant examine “The Social Principles of The United Methodist Church” as contained in the official text of Social Principles of The United Methodist Church 2017 – 2020. The Social Principles Advanced Course provides the Lay Servant opportunities to examine their own theology and ethics and to apply these values to their personal discipleship practices. The product of ninety-eight years of legislative decisions made by lay and clergy members of The United Methodist Church and its predecessor denominations, our Social Principles are prayerful and thoughtful efforts on the part of many General Conferences to speak to complex and controversial issues in the global community.
