On Sunday, October 12th the Wesley Foundation-Merced is having their eighth annual delicious barbecue chicken dinner.
The dinner is take-out style from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Merced UMC.
Tickets will go on sale here at our church on Sunday, September 8th after worship until the end of September. This is the foundation’s big fundraiser until next year.
If anyone is interested in going to Merced that after-noon to help out with preparing dinners for pick-up - please let me know. I am unable to attend this year - I will be participating in a church training that day.
If anyone has questions about the dinner or the Wesley Foundation - please ask me.
Thank you for your support! In Christ, Patrick McCarthy,
Wesley Foundation Board Member

The person needs to be able to meet the deadlines of the Mariposa Gazette and other publications. The right candidate will be compensated with PRAISE!
