October 24th Mooreville UMC Car Show and Barbeque Cook-off

These are a few of the cars featured at an event that took place at Mooreville UMC. Whoever heard of a church doing a car show and a barbecue cook-off as a means of outreach? This little church is renown for its "out-of-the-box" approach to ministry and has been rewarded by phenominal growth as result. Pastor Joel Robbins announced in the early service the next morning that at least one person had given their life to Christ at the Saturday event.

Marvin Menders Blitz Lott UMC

On Thursday morning, October 15th the mission crew from Marvin UMC, Tyler pulled up to the historic Methodist church in Lott and immediately set to work. Within the first hour part of the team had pulled the old awning and front door casing off of the building while another crew began constructing a new rear entrance. Still others began remodeling the kitchen on the interior.

Watching the enthusiastic "Menders" is most inspiring because of the love of Christ's church and devotion expressed in their work. It was also a very heart-warming experience to see the more-than-a-century-old church being renovated for continued service to the Lott community. Truly, this is the best of a win-win situation.
