The Minden United Methodist Church is having a Movie Night this coming Friday, April 1 at 7 p.m. The movie runs a bit over 2 hours in length and is appropriate for all ages. We would like to invite MEFC and especially your youth group to the movie. The movie "Jesus" is an unforgettable and uplifting movie; its message is one of hope and where the Bible comes to life! The event is free of charge and treats and water will be provided. Please contact the UMC with any questions you may have at 832-1995. We hope to see you Friday evening.
MOPS meets at the church on rotating Fridays from 8:45-11am. For more information, please contact the office.
Second semester MOPS dates:
Make plans to join us on April 9th from 9am-2pm at Cornerstone Berean Church in Kearney for an NGN workshop. Pastor Kelly Larsen's presentation on "Destigmatizing Counseling" will be FREE to the public, but we ask that you register at nebraskagospel.net so that food and supplies can be reserved for you!
Are you interested in baptism or baby dedication? Please contact the office for more information!
Daily Prayer Guide
We are called to pray for each other daily, and MEFC provides opportunities to help you keep yourself organized and accountable! Pick up a physical Daily Prayer Guide from the pamphlet display in the foyer. Praying for one another is a priceless gift!
The MEFC office will be open Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 9am-11am. If you must contact Megan outside of these hours, please call or text only from 8am-5pm to respect her family time. You may also email or leave a message on the church machine at any time!
We are in need of cookie bakers (or purchasers) and coffee servers! If you are interested in serving in this way, please sign up at the link below:

Groups Meeting at the Church
