Open Hearts. Open Minds.
 
  
Serving Christ in Greenfield since 1840
 

We seek to be the Body of Christ in the world as we gather for worship, spend time learning about God's extravagant love for us, celebrate our life as a community through fellowship and reach out to the world.  Our vibrant worship life fuels us for ministry to the world as we are involved in many community ministries.  We take hospitality seriously and we would love to have you join us and experience our faith community for yourself! 

Sunday School Fall Mission Project
This fall, we have decided to keep out fall mission a little closer to home. We have contacted United Methodist Children's Services (UMCS) in Milwaukee and received a list of programs that could use a helping hand.
We have decided to focus our efforts on a program within UMCS called The Growing Tree Children's Center. Growing Tree is a licensed childcare facility, providing quality care to children aged six momths to twelve years old.
During the month of October, we would like to partner with Blessed Hope and collect the following: diapers (sizes 3 through 5), wipes, and new underwear and socks (for ages six months through 12 years old).    Thank you for continually supporting our youngest learners as they grow in their faithful service.
 
Commitment Sunday; November 5
Turn in your pledge card, and join us for out annual Commitment Dinner featuring Meyer's Chicken!
Be there!
 
Santa's Secret Gift Shop and Pancake Breakfast; December 9th
It is not too early to put this on your calendar!
Our secret gift shop and pancake breakfast is scheduled for December 9. Details to follow.
But now, we are collecting new or gently used items for Santa's Secret Gift Shop. Bring your donations in and put them in the box outside the youngster's Sunday School Room.
 
An Exciting Time for Memorial United Methodist Church
As mentioned earlier, there are some changes ahead!
Change can be difficult, change can be uncomfortable - but let's give it a chance!
As part of the new urban Regional Ministry that Memorial UMC is embarking on with Blessed Hope UMC, we now know who our shared minister will be, Pastor Lizzie Weed (who is currently assigned to Blessed Hope UMC). Let's take some time to learn more about Pastor Lizzie, please be sure to read the info that will be provided in our church newsletter.
In addition, let's keep Pastor Janet in our prayers as she is begins her new ministry in Port Washington! We thank her for being our faithful shepherd and wish her all the best going forward.
This is an exciting time, and an anxious time - but it is up to you to help make it happen - participate!
Join us as we embark on a new adventure as a Urban Regional Ministry!
 

Help Wanted . . .

As we get acquainted with our new Pastor, and welcome any guests that might be visiting - we need snacks/treats for our fellowship time after service is complete. Please sign up on the bulletin board...
