Special offering nets $578 to assist Jim in his move
Youth and children of the church led worship June 23, providing a special program of chimes music, praise songs, a skit, and a dialogue sermon featuring Patrick Young and Rev. Keeler.
The youth made a special collection in the service to be presented to Jim Nevel to assist him as he transitions in the coming week from serving as youth director at Zion to being the pastor at Bettsville Salem UMC. Jim must attend a special school later this summer, and youth wanted to provide funds to help underwrite that training.
Barbara Markley presented Jim with a check and gift certificate totaling $578 at the barbecue chicken dinner that followed the service.
Patrick Young and Nicole Smith also presented Jim with a custom-made T-shirt featuring a photo of much of the group and a special travel coffee mug labeled "Man of God."
