Warming Up Prescott Hard to believe fall is almost here and it’s time to get busy on our Warming Up Prescott projects! Last year you made hundreds of hats and scarves for the local shelters and I know some of you have been stitching away at home all summer. I need to know if there is enough interest to form a stitching group to meet at the church. Need to learn how to knit or crochet? Join us by calling the church office at 778-1950.
Feed the hungry at the Granite Creek Hunger Potluck every Saturday at 10:30 AM--call the office 778-1950.
Lincoln Elementary School Partnership
Help support our neighbor school by joining with us in our monthly project or donating to the needs of the school. Please continue to bring items for Lincoln Loot, which awards students for acts of kindness, good deeds, and good behavior, such as: Trinkets Water bottles Small toys Fun erasers and pencils Stickers Markers, pens, gel pens Balls: small, tennis, bouncy Jump ropes Small plastic animals and bugs
You may drop off these items in the office or place in the container provided in the Narthex. As they near the end of the school year, paper supplies are running low. So, how about picking up a ream or so of white or pastel copy paper the next time you’re at Staples, Walmart, or some other store? All of your gifts to the school are greatly appreciated by the staff and students! Thanks for your generosity.

Walk with our Float in the Prescott Annual Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 5, 2015 The Prescott Chamber of Commerce 33rd Annual Christmas Parade is scheduled for Saturday, December 5. This year’s theme is “The Magic of Christmas.” Our float represents the Christmas magic of the birth of Christ and the miracles that Jesus performed during his life here on Earth. There is so much that is magical about Christmas, so much that is mysterious, amazing, almost unbelievable! Imagine angels, visitors from foreign lands, an unexpected birth!. Meet at Spot #8 by 12 PM. Parade starts at 1 PM. Come back to the church for hot chocolate and goodies afterward in Douglas/513
December 6: A Service of Solace & Hope
Prescott United Methodist Church will hold a “Longest Night Service for Solace and Hope” on Sunday, December 6, 2013, at 3 PM, Agape/200.
Sometimes called “Blue Christmas,” this special time of meditation and remembering is open to the community. Dealing with the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with the loss of a job, living with a disease that puts a question mark over the future, or any number of other human situations can make holi-day parties and celebrations, and even worship, painful for many in our community. If this has been a year of challenge or loss, or if this holiday season feels more like a season of despair and grief than one of joy and peace, come and gather with us for a Spirit-led quiet time of music, Scripture and hope
