NETworX Yadkin.  Join us on Monday evenings beginning at 5:30 pm for NETworX summer programming. This will include gardening, canning, cooking, connecting, and more. We are also sorely in need of meal sponsors so if your group would be willing to donate a meal please reach out to Crystal. 

The Adult Sunday School Class continues to meet in the Family Life Center Sunday mornings between 9:15am and 9:45am.  Everyone is invited.  You do not have to attend each week to participate.   It is relaxed, and you can enjoy breakfast provided by the men’s group.  Contact Mark or Mitzie Moran for details.

Clothing Closet.  Have you heard?  There is a new ministry happening here.  We are working on an official clothing closet.  Over the years, we have provided clothing for our homeless guests through NETworX’s yard sale donations.  It is a needed outreach.  Therefore, we are officially working on turning a classroom into a clothing closet.  We want your input and help!  Please fill out this survey to help guide our next steps by scanning the QR code or online at https://forms.gle/qGtCkHe8T23QGJmA6.

Leadership Team.  The Leadership Team meets every month on the third Wednesday at 6:30 pm in the John Classroom.  We will not meet in July.  Our next meeting is August 21, 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.
