Communion Offering

At Mariposa United Methodist Church, the monthly communion offering holds a special place in our community's heart. This cherished tradition, held during our Sunday service, symbolizes unity, compassion, and support for various local ministries. Each month, congregants generously contribute to this offering, a vital source of funding for the church's impactful outreach programs. From aiding those experiencing hardship to supporting educational initiatives and community-building endeavors, this offering embodies our commitment to serving and uplifting our neighbors in Mariposa.

This Months Scripture

James 1:1-8, 12
2 Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. 3 For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. 4 So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.
5 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. 6 But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. 7 Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do.
12 God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

TGIF Kids Club

Join us for an exciting journey of learning and growth as we gear up to kick off the Friday afternoon children's program at Mariposa United Methodist Church. Starting right after school on September 8, this engaging program is a wonderful opportunity for children to explore their faith in a nurturing environment.

As we embark on this meaningful endeavor, we're reaching out to our community for support. If you feel called to contribute and be a part of this ministry, we encourage you to connect with Gussie Kidd. Rest assured, no prior experience is required as comprehensive training will be provided to equip you to work effectively with the children.

Let's come together to create a positive impact on the young hearts and minds in our community. Your involvement is not just appreciated - it's transformative.

Fun Fellowship and Events

Having fun yet? Consider joining one of the Fun and Fellowship summer events listed below.

This has been a very fun round of Fun and Fellowship events! The Holiday Bake Sale got us off to a great start and allowed many of us to stock our freezers and treat our neighbors and friends to delectable Christmas goodies.

The Lumpia class with Norms and Kerri was very informative and delicious. Norms taught us how to fill and roll lumpias, and then after Mahal cooked our finished products, we feasted on vegetarian, sausage, and dessert lumpias. We even took an assortment home!

The Role Playing Games, hosted by Adam, stretched our imaginations and encouraged us to work together as a team. We all adopted raccoon names and personalities and laughed our way through lots of encounters. And, Adam provided very tasty snacks!

The Prime Rib Dinner was postponed because of the snow, but Christina worked with all the guests to come up with a date and time that worked for everyone. And no one wanted to miss this dinner. It was Prime Rib, with all the fixin's. The food was delicious, the conversation was lively, and everyone had a great time.

The upcoming Mariposa Memories and Lumberjack Breakfast with a Forester is sold out with waiting lists, but you still have a chance to join us for BUNCO on April 13th, at 2:00 pm. This is an easy and really fun game, and the afternoon includes delicious snacks and desserts and everyone goes home with a prize! If you've never tried it, please join us. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children. Contact Glenn and Kathy for tickets.

Thanks so much for your wonderful support of Fun and Fellowship! ~ Glenn and Kathy 209-742-6131

Some events may be full, tickets may still be available, or there may be waiting lists. Please call Glenn or Kathy at (209)742-6131 if you are interested in joining the fun.
