Where Faith Works, Where Faith Grows
Community Food Pantry
Our next Community Food Pantry USDA Food Distribution is Friday, May 5th Join us as we work together with volunteers from other churches to provide food for persons in our community. Help us unload the NN Food Bank truck and prepare bags Thursday from 8:30 to 11 am. Help us welcome guests and carry bags for them on Friday from 7:45am – 12. Your giving and hard work make a big difference in the lives of hundreds of people in our community each month. God uses this ministry to make an impact here where we live. In March we provided food for 407 persons in our community. In 2016, we distributed 70 tons of food.
United Methodist Women
We have changed our meeting schedule for 2017. We will be meeting on the second Tuesday of each month at 12 noon in the Fellowship Hall. Bring your lunch; beverages and dessert will be provided. We invite all women to join us, and bring a friend.
You do not need to be a member of Warsaw UMC; you don’t even need to be a United Methodist. We are all about mission on behalf of women, children, and youth everywhere.
I hope to see you at our next meeting!

Confirmation provides an opportunity for students to learn more about faith, ask questions, confirm their baptism, and begin to live more fully into their own relationship with God. Adults are also welcome if you want to refresh your knowledge and renew your faith.
Classes will be Sunday afternoons 4:00-5:15, beginning February 19 and running through May 21 (not including holidays). Confirmands are also asked to go to the District Youth Retreat in March 24-26. Confirmands will confirm their faith on Pentecost Sunday, June 4.
