Weekly E-Blast for Friday, November 16

Dear Members and Friends of Waterville United Methodist Church,

During the worship service, we will have an opportunity to consecrate our commitment to the Lord.  Hopefully, you have received a yellow 2019 Stewardship Form in the mail within the past week.  Please prayerfully consider your commitment to stewardship.  If you are ready to turn your form in, please do bring it to church this Sunday.  If you did not receive one or need another one, we will have them available this Sunday.  Thank you.
