Weekly Update 10.30.22

Current Events

Welcome to Granville United Methodist Church! We hope that you can join us for Sunday worship at 10:30 a.m. Please see the announcements below for all of our upcoming events. Have a Blessed Week!

Attention all members over the age of 55: we are interested in setting up a driver safety course. We need to see how many people would be interested in taking the class and then possibly setting a time and date. This will involve an 8-hour class for new participants and a 4 hour “refresher” class for former participants who wish to keep their insurance discount. After taking the class you will get a 5% discount on your auto insurance bill. Some insurances will offer more than the required 5%. The discount is good for 3 years. The fee is $20 for AARP members and $25 for non-members. If you are interested or know someone who might be interested, please call Audrey Kinser. Once we get a count of those interested then we will proceed to set up a class.

Community Choir for Community Thanksgiving Service at Pine Glen Church of the Brethren. Ellen Miller and Beth Myers are working together to form a community choir for the service.  We are inviting singers from Wayne, Granville, McVeytown, Spring Run COB, Pine Glen, and McVeytown Presbyterian.  We are having rehearsals at McVeytown UMC on Wednesday, November 2nd, 9th and, if needed, Nov. 16th.  The music has been selected.  If anyone would like to participate please contact Beth Myers at 717-994-4535 or Ellen Miller at 717-437-0218.  If you leave a message, let us know what part you sing and if you would like a copy of the music before rehearsals start.  (Copies of music in the rear vestibule at Granville UM Church.)
