December Mission Focus:  YUMC Giving Tree. YUMC was NOT able to obtain Angels from the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program.  We are doing our own Giving Tree.  We have neighbors that need assistance with Christmas.  The ANGELS are ready!  Grab a tag from the tree and sign it out.  Gifts should be returned to YUMC by Sunday, December 10, 2023.

Special Project.  Would you be interested in changing our “All Saints star bells” from safety pins to Velcro (after November, but before next All Saints)?  If so call Pastor Jonathan or Bobbi.

Unforeseen expense. We had a recent unforeseen expense in replacement of our Office HVAC unit. Our Building & Grounds team worked quickly to recommend & arrange a well thought out plan. Total repair cost is $9,330 (payable over 3 monthly installments).  If you would like to help offset this expense memo your donation Office HVAC.  WOW!  We have received $6,550.00 towards this unexpected expense.  YUMC you are generous! Thank you.

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.
