Kentucky United Methodists will join together on this day to serve one another and serve together. A variety of ministry opportunities are available across the state, with particular emphasis on those regions affected by the spring storms. The Impact Kentucky website offers a complete list of possible experiences and instructions for registration. Sites will fill up quickly, so secure your participation by signing up today.
Centenary's Julie Broderson will partner with Centenary's former associate pastor Susan Elkow, who is coordinating the NEW HOPE FESTIVAL in Menifee county. This area has suffered great disasters in the past months. Homes and, in some cases, hope, have been lost. The FESTIVAL is an opportunity for United Methodists to come together and show God's love in a tangible way to the people of Menifee County. There are currently no UM churches in this county where only 12% attend church. This event will bring much needed encouragment and support the future planting of a UM church through servant ministry. Anticipated attendance is 1000 people. Volunteer opportunities include serving food & drinks, working with games, giving away socks & underwear, registration, and many other opportunities. Atthough some physical stamina will be needed for setup and teardown, many activities will be low impact. There is something for everyone. Families are invited to serve. Childcare will be provided for ages 3 (potty trained) through 3rd grade (a $10/child donation is suggested).
Contact Julie Broderson by email to join her in serving at the New Hope Festival or for more information.
