UMM APPLE SALE

The UMM-sponsored Apple Sale is going on now! The format of the sale has changed somewhat because of the pandemic, but the apples will be just as tasty as ever. Apples will be sold by the bag this year, $5 per bag. Each bag will have over 2 lbs of apples of a single type. Purchase multiple bags and take home a variety! Available varieties this year: Empire, Stayman, Jonagold, Cameo, Mutsu Crispin, Golden Delicious, and Red Delicious. We also have apple cider, apple butter, and apple sauce for sale.


Apples and related items will be sold in advance through online ordering to minimize contact during the sale. Order online until October 22, or until supplies run out. Order early to make sure you get your apples!


Click HERE for the Apple Sale Order Form!

Please note: E-mail receipts and confirmation messages will automatically arrive in your in-box with addresses from MinistryForms and/or CloverGive, our secure credit card processing partner.


Orders will be available for pick-up October 24 & 25, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, in front of the St. Paul's parsonage (between the church's front door and the parking lot entrance). 


Any apples that remain after the online sales are completed will be available for sale, by the bag, for walk-up customers. Come by on October 24 & 25 to purchase pre-bagged apples at the usual low cost.


As always, we need help to make the Apple Sale a success. We will need a few volunteers to bag apples before the pick-up days and to organize orders. On pick-up/sale days, we will need a few helpers to distribute apple orders and to sell apples to walk-up customers. All in-person transactions will be done with safety as a top priority. 


If you are willing and able help, please contact Phil Rush. If you don't have Phil's cell phone number or personal email, please contact Erin at the church office at stpaulsunited@stpaulsk.org to get started.

united methodist men

The purpose of the United Methodist Men is to engage in a variety of Christ-centered activities for the benefit of the ministries, programs and activities of the church and its’ members. 


Since its formation in 1948, our men's organization strives to create opportunities for men of the church to be in service to Christ and to the community. United Methodist Men, through the giving of their gifts and services, enjoy fellowship, companionship, and the love that comes from being in service to the Lord.


We count all male members and friends of the church among the UMM, so come and be with us! There are no dues or fees to join.


During covid-19, most of our projects are on hold or happening virtually. In a normal year, we would have a men's fellowship meal 6 times a year, from cookouts to potlucks, with informational and interesting programs shared by our members touching on everything from Scottish Highland Bagpipes to Dogsledding in Alaska. Past UMM outings have included trips to play mini-golf and to watch Washington Nationals baseball games.

 

St. Paul's UMM also donates financial support and time to many groups and projects including:

Boy Scout Troop #439, Venture Crew, and Cub Scout Pack #478

Church Van Operations

Volunteer-in-mission work trips

St. Paul's Library

The Educational Award Fund

St. Paul's Hunger Ministry

St. Paul's Youth (SPY) Travel and Mission Projects

Baltimore-Washington Conference UMC Camping & Retreat Ministries, including West River Center

Red Bird Mission in rural Kentucky

UMCOR

Organizations such as the NIH Children's Inn and Children's National Medical Center

 

The United Methodist Men raise funds for these purposes through several regularly-scheduled events during the year. In normal programming years, these include Pancake Breakfasts on the 1st Saturday of every month (except July & August); semi-annual Indoor Yard Sales; Fall Apple Sale; and the Christmas Tree Sale. Unfortunately, in 2020-2021, due to covid-19, most of our events will have to be canceled or rescheduled.

Christmas Tree Sale Canceled for 2020

Due to the obstacles posed by covid-19, the UMM wishes to announce the decision we will not hold a Christmas Tree sale this winter. 


We will miss seeing the smiling faces of the families selecting their "perfect tree" but it's most important to keep our community safe and well. 


Please direct any questions to the UMM through president Phil Rush. (Contact the church office if you need Phil's personal email or phone.)
