DEADLINE FOR BULLETIN is Wednesday (12:00 noon). Deadline for the next monthly Newsletter is the 3rd Monday (12:00 noon) of the current month.
WEB SITE: Visit www.patokaumc.org regularly for information. Also note that it is compatible with your phone! Calendar will be kept up to date, information on happenings, Sunday’s children’s program will be on the site, this and a lot more! If you would like to help maintain the web site, please let Pastor Jeff know.
PEW PADS: Please remember to sign the pew pads each Sunday morning with the names of each member of your family in attendance… and make sure your neighbor has signed also. We are glad to send bulletins/newsletters but strive to be good stewards by not sending mail unnecessarily. If you do not sign we assume you are not in attendance. It is also vital that you sign for accurate record keeping. The pew pads can also be used to list prayer requests that are spoken or unspoken during Worship. It only takes a minute to sign your name and pass the book to your neighbor.
PATOKA UMC ENDOWMENT FUND: In the financial section of our bulletin, you see the “PUMC Endowment Fund” with a balance of $76,259.00. These funds have been given by members & friends of this church. This fund is a great way to benefit the church, not only now but forever. The principle of this fund generates, at present, 4% interest annually to be used as we see fit. It is backed by the Lilly Foundation, conservatively invested, and managed by the Gibson County Community Foundation. It is a safe investment. If we had $100,000 in the fund, we would receive at least $4,000 annually for as long as the fund exists which should be a VERY, VERY long time. This fund would be an excellent choice for estate planning or giving now. If you have immediate questions, please contact me, Pastor Jeff.
