UM Men's Ministries

Children's Ministries

I want to thank all the folks who supported the Tommy Jobe Scholarship Fundraiser BBQ Dinner to help us raise money for those going to college, to help with a few things.  

Make sure you write down Apr. 10, 2017; we will have a program by Mac Southwell, showing the steps of our new storage shed being built by our own church members. At this meeting, we will thank everyone who had a part in helping us build the shield. This meeting will be open to all church members and we will also be having our UMM elections. May 8, 2017 will be the date that the UMM present the scholarship to our youth who applied for a Tommy Jobe Scholarship.

Once again, I want to congratulate our Cross and Flame Scout Leaders for 2017, Girl Scout Troop 1260, Sarah Tucker and MacKenzie Sickles; Troop 11, Julie Merkel and Janet Cooper; Pack 11, Richard Haynes; and our Church, Mark Moody and Spiritual Leader Robert Chapman.

Our United Methodist God and Service Awards were presented to Sandy Elder and Jeanette Yoh.

Our Youth Leaders who earned the Good Samaritan Award were Kathleen Elder and Theresa Montane of Girl Scout Troop 1260, and for Troop 11, Curtis W. Merkel.

Congratulations, Chestnut Memorial on being a Sheppard Charter Church for the second time in two years. Congratulations to Pack 11 for earning the Bishop Award; this will be presented at Charge Conference in June by the Bishop.

Our Scouts are hard at work earning their way by doing Girl Scout Cookie Sells and Troop 11 Mulch Sells. Support our scouts. Buy a box or two from the girls of Troop 1260 and buy some mulch from Troop 11.

Elizabeth Burtner worked with nine Boy Scouts and two Tiger Cubs, to help meet the requirements for the Art Merit Badge.

Our own Dick Barnes was presented the highest award in Boy Scouting, the Silver Beaver Award, in March. I want to congratulate Dick on earning this award and making Chestnut proud.

This will be my last report as UMM president, as a new president will take office in April. So I want to thank all the folks who have helped me over the years.

I know everyone will support the new president as you have me; and may our United Methodist Men grow under our new leadership.
