First United Methodist Church Knoxville, Iowa: OCTOBER LINK

We have a potluck the first Thursday of every month at 12:00 PM in the church commons. Since we want everyone to be safe, Potlucks are canceled for now. I will let you know when we can start up again.

Our next Potluck to be announced at a later date. When we are able to get back together again, Albian Johnson and/or Will Jenne (our Intrium Youth Directors) will be joining us to talk about the way ahead for the Methodist Church. They have a very good PowerPoint Presentation that I believe you will find very interesting and enlightening.  Bring your favorite dish to share. We look forward to seeing everyone and getting hugs and smiles.

Lunch dates are subject to change.

Normally on the third Thursday of every month, we go somewhere, but during these quarantined times, we are playing it safe. These are day trips.
