- PARTY LINE PRAYER MEETING … would you be interested in participating in a “party line” prayer meeting? We would all telephone a number and share needs for prayer and have a time of fellowship with one another as a group over the phone. It would last as long as we wanted—perhaps on Wednesday evening and/or a weekday morning. Please let the pastor know if you are interested.
- SOBER REALITIES: Unvaccinated people may choose to wear masks for their own safety and the safety of other non-vaccinated people. Please do not crowd each other as we adjust to this change. Physical distance is the most effective precaution against COVID!
It is possible but unlikely that a vaccinated person can get COVID. A vaccinated person with COVID is as contagious as anyone else, so some may choose to wear masks to protect others. You can be contagious before you even know you are ill. Not everyone feels safe not wearing a mask—please be kind. We’ve had a tough year! Please pray for wisdom for our government leaders and a calm response throughout this current surge of the Delta variant.
- In 1957, the Methodist church was bequeathed 210 acres of farmland approximately 5 miles southeast of Kinmundy, by the estate of Mary Mayer. Mary Mayer was not a member of our church or any church but was close friends who were active members. As Mrs. Mayer was reaching her declining years and preparing to dispose of her earthly possessions, she asked her administrator , “What should I do with my farm?” The administrator was a well-known, well respected and an avid church member and an active member of the Methodist church trustees. Mr. “BY” Rotan suggested that she might consider leaving it to the church. Twenty acres was sold and now the church owns 190 acres with 2 oil wells thanks to Mary Mayer. There was a photo published in the Salem paper a few years ago. The caption that went with the photo read “High Fashions — THIS PHOTOGRAPH taken about 1899 shows, Mrs Mary Mayer of Kinmundy, before her marriage to George Mayer. The Mayers were owners of much land in Meacham township, and their home was among the area’s showplaces. Coming from Indiana, and formerly in the hardware business, Mayer developed a fine Jersey farm in southern Meacham township, with numerous fine outbuildings. Mr. and Mrs. Mayer wintered in Florida.”
Diane Hanks had the picture enlarged and framed and it now sits on the piano in the Fellowship Hall.
