Saraland UMC Calendar of Events

Serve Sunday
September 22, 2019
Don’t miss an incredible opportunity to serve our community! On Serve Sunday, September 22, our whole church will gather from 8:00 AM – Noon to serve in mission, and we need you! Please fill out our registration form in the lobby to be matched with one of our many community service projects. Serve Sunday is for EVERYONE. You are not too old or too young. We have a spot for you. Please see Pastor Mike, or any of our awesome Mission Team members for questions. It will be an awesome Mission Day! We are “People helping people, love and serve Jesus.”
Church Wide Yard Sale
October 4th & 5th
Saraland UMC will hold a huge Yard Sale on Friday and Saturday, October 4 & 5. We are now accepting items for the Yard Sale. Please contact Judy Callen or the church office for details on where to bring you donations. We are also seeking VOLUNTEERS to work the week before, during, and after the yard sale. There’s much to be done! Please let Judy Callen or the church office know if you are willing to help. Proceeds from this sale go towards reducing our roof debt and missions. Your support is appreciated!
Uplift Update
Progress continues on the renovations of our Sanctuary. Drywall will go up over the next couple of weeks, followed by finishing and painting in mid August. In late Summer or early Fall, the carpet will be installed, followed by the new chairs. We still need approximately $10K to finish the Sanctuary renovations. Your gifts to Uplift will go towards finishing the Sanctuary and reducing our roof loan debt. 
Thanks be to God for all the great things He has done! Because of the gifts from His faithful, our entire campus is being updated for His glory!

Y-T-D Uplift Contributions: $39,379
