Easter Offering

Each year we receive a special Easter Offering that goes directly to the General Fund. This year we have decided to highlight our Youth Ministry through this offering. We will update you with what’s been happening with the youth. From a budget standpoint, the youth program has several components, from the salary for your youth director, Kristen Johnson, as well as costs for programs and activities. Thanks in advance for your support.


Orientation/Membership Class Coming

Pastor Dan will be offering a class to those who want more information about the UM Church and/or membership on Thursday, May 8 and May 15 at 7PM in his office. This is a class for those who want to know more about United Methodism, its beliefs and overview of Stanwood UMC. It is also an opportunity for those who desire, to explore church membership. Please let Pastor Dan know if you want to participate in this class so materials can be ordered.


Adult Sunday School

On April 27 we will begin a 4-week study of the Book of Daniel. Class starts at 10:15AM in the conference room, across from the church office. Please join us if you can. Lead by Vickie Mongar.



E Donations: $$$$$

Just a reminder that you can donate to the SUMC General Fund or other special activities on the Church Website (sumc@stanwoodumc.org). You’ll find a “Donate” item that will take you to our vendor, Vanco Services. It’s secure, validated by the General Conference of UMC and easy to use. This is just an additional convenience to our members who prefer to use automatic giving or simple one-time donations. Check it out.                                                                              Your Finance Committee





Mission Committee Report

The Interfaith Family Shelter in Everett reported that housing is really tight now and their clients are having a hard time finding affordable housing. Because of the shortage of housing, they are having to stay longer in the shelter than is normal.  The Shelter Coordinator, Constance Stanford, said that they need the following items:


1. Double and twin fitted sheets.  They have plenty of flat sheets.

2. Blankets

3. Sturdy hard plastic cups for children

4. Sturdy hard plastic bowls

5. Silverware


If you have any of the above items, please leave them in the Yellow Room.                                                                                                  Chuck Durland
