2018 Mission Quilt: A beautiful quilt has been donated that will be showcased at the three cluster Methodist churches until May 27. Each church will be accepting donations for the mission trip. Donations can be made out to each local Methodist church and marked “quilt fundraiser.” The donations will be kept confidential until May 27 when the donations will then be reviewed and the quilt will be presented to the person making the largest donation.
