ATLM is dedicated to offering our brothers and sisters in Christ who live with a disability a space in which to foster relationships and build community. The faith-based, specialized Lake Erie fishing experiences can be life-changing stepping-stones on the road to independence for the guests.

Please support Peace with Justice Sunday. Empower local Christians around the world to build the kingdom of peace that Jesus ushered in. Special envelopes will be included in the bulletin on June 11th, or mark your gift “Peace with Justice”.
I recently read of a rather strange proposal: Jake Hess said his wife laughed at him the first time he asked her to marry him. She explained how he asked her, “Would you like to be buried with my people?”
I stood in the doorway as he walked down the steps with his head hung low. As he walked down the sidewalk I heard him begin to sob, and between sobs, I could hear him cry, “I just want to go home! I just want to go home, and no one will help me.”
John’s story of the first Easter is vivid, rich, and full of fascinating details. In John, the little things, the details, are often pregnant with meaning. There is an interesting detail in John’s Easter account—everyone was busy running.
In today’s fast-paced life, many of us miss the chance to connect with people through the written word. For the month of May, the Witness Committee challenges every member of our church family to slow down and send a handwritten note to someone meaningful in your life. Blank notecards are available in the back of the sanctuary, or you can send your own. Maybe it’s an old friend you haven’t talked to in a while; maybe you need to thank someone in a special way; maybe there is a birthday coming up. Regardless of the reason, we all know someone who is NoteWorthy, so take a minute to let them know.
Each month, the SUMC Witness Committee is challenging our congregation to live their faith more fully every day. We begin by challenging you to share things you love about SUMC with others, particularly through social media.
