TRUSTEES TO EMBARK ON HUGE PROJECT

Beginning on September 20, 2014 the trustees and members of the congregation will begin work in the basement area of the church.  Repairs to walls, floor and painting the floor and heat ducts are some of the projects planned. The committee asks for everyone’s understanding as the space in our basement will be “torn apart” a bit.

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE BUSINESS AFTER HOURS

The Ellsworth United Methodist Church is a member of the Ellsworth Chamber of Commerce. As a member we are all invited to attend any of their business after hours.  At these events people get to meet and learn a bit about each other’s businesses and organizations. Members or our congregation are urged to attend these events to promote our Church and to help people at the event become more familiar with EUMC. Contact Suzanne Chaney if you are interested in attending.

November 14,2014  Business After Hours will be at Rocket Computer/Washing Baby Elephants

December 5,2014  Business After Hours will be at Union River Books and Toys/Karen’s Cafe

NEXT ADMINISTRATIVE COUNCIL MEETING OCTOBER 14, 2014  7:00PM              AT THE MEADOWS COMPLEX

The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center provides a comfortable place for cancer patients, families, and friends to meet their educational and emotional needs. Their staff is almost entirely volunteer; professionals and caring community members donate their time to offer classes, meetings, and programs that are free to people with cancer, their families, and friends. They offer books, brochures, video and audio tapes as well as a computer with access to the internet. The Center is open from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday all year round.

The center is located at 23 Commerce Park, Ellsworth, ME 04605

We have 15 cook books left. Out of State visitors have been buying them this summer.  If you would like to purchase one or would like to purchase one for a friend do it soon… They are selling fast.

THE PICTURE DIRECTORY HAS BEEN COMPILED, EDITED AND SUBMITTED FOR PRINTING.

MANY THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED IN THIS PROJECT. THE PROOF BOOKLET LOOKS GREAT AND IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MADE POSSIBLE WITHOUT EVERYONE MAKING A HUGE EFFORT TO COME TO THE CHURCH TO HAVE YOUR PICTURES TAKEN. THE PROJECT WAS HEADED UP BY JOHN AND NANCY KOHL. HOW CAN WE ALL EVER THANK THEM FOR WORKING SO HARD TO MAKE EVERYONE’S APPOINTMENTS AND FOR HOURS OF WORK JOHN PUT IN TO THIS DIRECTORY.
