NETworX Yadkin is still meeting at 5:30 pm every Monday, but the next two weeks are special. On Monday May 6, 2024 we will start setting up for our yard sale (the yard sale is on May 10, 2024 & May 11, 2024-see flyer in the bulletin).  Then on May 13, 2024 we graduate our group of mentees.  We invite you to either or both events. Help us celebrate the wonderful work our community is doing!


Leadership Team.  The Leadership Team meets every month on the third Wednesday at 6:30 pm in the New Sunday School Classroom.  Our next meeting is MAY 15, 2024.  Our monthly meetings are open to all members of the church.  If you would like to read the minutes of our meetings, see the budget, or YUMC’s Guiding Principles, visit www.yadkinvilleumc.org/members (password: YadkinvilleMember).

Lighthouse Congregation

Our Leadership Team met on February 28th and approved the following:

 

Our congregation, Yadkinville United Methodist Church, has decided to become a Lighthouse Congregation of The Western North Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church in partnership with The United Methodist Collective. In doing so, we not only commit to remaining a part of The United Methodist Church but also to serving those who have lost their church homes through disaffiliation or closure. We will partner in this work by providing a welcoming  place, offering ministry opportunities, helping organize remnant groups in our community, and assisting individuals and groups in discerning their next steps as they find a new church home.

 

This means that Yadkinville UMC commits to:

1) Provide a welcoming place to belong during this time of grief and transition, which might be for just a season, or for a lifetime. This includes a safe space with caring relationships, listening hearts, and unconditional love within a congregation that is confident it is remaining in the UMC.

2) Offer No pressure” ministry opportunities (if the person or group is willing). These will include worship, discipleship, and mission.

3) Organize local Remaining UMC groups by proactively finding and connecting with individuals and groups displaced by disaffiliating churches.

4) Connect individuals or groups with Conference and District resources to help them discern their next steps as they consider a new church home.
