Reynolds UMC


Rev. Paul Newhall and his congregation recently celebrated the addition of an elevator to their church.  To see the transformation, please check out this PDF rendering of the PowerPoint that was produced for the dedication held on August 28, 2016.

Congratulations to Reynolds UMC for working hard to ensure all are welcomed!



Rev. Bradley Watkins and the folks at Elmwood UMC recently hosted a Celebrate-Serve-Impact event where church members went out into three neighboring communities (Elmwood, Yates City, and Farmington) to meet the needs of residents.  This project was accomplished by volunteers as well as through funding from The United Methodist Communications Rethink Church program.  A few pictures of the day of service are shown below.
