Remembering Bill Bassett

Friends,
I share the sad news that Bill Bassett has passed away. Bill was a formidable figure in our church community and served our church for many years. Known for his warm greeting, his pride in his grandchildren’s accomplishments, his love of the Dodgers and the generous practice of gifting people pens. For each holiday, he would show up with a pen for the occasion, or a special theme pen for each person in the choir, or a pen or pencil to give to each of the children.

Please keep Marilyn and his children in your prayers. And the many many people who will miss this kind and loving man.

As more information is available, I will share it.
Thank you, God, for the gift of Bill Bassett.

Faith in Film: “Heaven is for Real” Feb. 22 at 6:00PM

Our wildly popular Faith in Film series is back with a double feature coming soon!

First up will be the well received true story HEAVEN IS FOR REAL, the tale of a young boy who nearly died (or did he?) and then following his miraculous recovery began to see things and say other things that seemed to be either crazy or impossible….UNLESS something supernatural was going on!

Could little Colton REALLY have met Grandpa?  In Heaven?  And then came back?

On Washington’s birthday, Feb. 22, at 6 pm we will begin to find out, after we first enjoy one of our classic WUMC pot luck dinners.  Then, following the screening Pastor Krista and series director Jay Swartz will lead a discussion about the afterlife.

Next up, just one month later on March 22, bring your pillows, teddy bears, jammies and blankees for a journey down memory lane with our little munchkins as we enjoy watching the all time classic MARY POPPINS.  It’s going to be Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!!
