  • messy church Returns

    Have you been missing your Messy Church? 

    When is the last time you hit a pinata, made your own ice cream sundae or sang “Happy Birthday” with 100 or your closest friends? Those good times and many others are returning on Tuesday, August 10 from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm as we celebrate the relaunch of Messy Church at Williamsburg UMC. In keeping with the events of the summer, our theme is “Messy Olympics!” We are planning an amazing line-up of games and activities guaranteed to be wet, wild and wonderful. (Hint – think water, eggs, Cool Whip, exploding paint balls and more water!) And don’t forget Celebration Time and dinner, too.

    For information about Messy Church, an intergenerational experience for families of all ages, contact Cindy Banek, cbanek@williamsburgumc.org

    Book Club

    We are happy to have anyone from our church family join us! Our meetings are held monthly at 7:00 pm on 2nd Mondays. We follow the UMW’s Reading Program which is a cherished tradition that brings people together in mission as they explore, share, and discuss books. 

    We are taking a hiatus for the summer, but are reading independently during June, July, and August, and all readers should send their list of books read this year (September 2020 - August 2021) to the Book Club Coordinator by August 15. 

    Four books have been chosen to read for the remainder of the year: Coffee, Tea, and Holy Water by Amanda Hudson (Sept), The Weight of Mercy by Deb Richardson-Moore (Oct), Dreamers by Eileen Truax, (Nov), and The White Umbrella by Mary Frances Bowley (Dec). 

    We will resume meeting via Zoom on Monday, September 13 at 7:00 pm, when we will discuss Coffee, Tea, and Holy Water by Amanda Hudson.
