A ‘Big E’ thank you

Whew!  Our 100th year at the BigE and another one under our belt serving hundreds of meals 3 times a day, 7 days a week to the hungry, hard working 4H kids staying on campus to care for their animals.

Our thanks to all the volunteers and our cook and food prep crew.  It truely takes a small army of dedicated people to pull this off.  Congratulations!

Here’s something different from Jesus….

“And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of dishonest wealth so that when it is gone, they may welcome you into the eternal homes.”

Whoa – wait – “make friends for yourself by means of dishonest wealth….” and Jesus said this?

That’s the basis for the sermon for this Sunday. How on earth can we figure this one out? Come and find out, Sunday, September 22nd, 10am…

Volunteer Opportunity!

It’s BIG E time again and our church will be serving meals to the 4-H youth during the 18 days of the Big E at the Horace Moses Building.  This will be our 100th year of providing 3 meals a day to these young people.  This project enables us to work with the community and also realize a successful fundraiser for the many missions of our church.  This year the Big E runs from Friday, Sept. 13th – Sunday, Sept. 29th. On Thursday, Sept 12th we will be serving lunch and supper as the youth arrive & settle in. We usually serve 300-400 meals a day to lots of smiling faces. The week-ends are extra busy and require extra help.  Many hands make light work and fun, too.

We look forward to another successful year and hope to see many old friends as well as many new ones. Please bring a friend!  This is an opportunity for fun & fellowship, while providing a great service for the 4H youth of New England.

If you would like to sign up to help please contact the church office (413) 788-0304, send us an email (westspringfieldumc@gmail.com), or use our contact page.  Sign up soon, spots are filling up.
