Church Ministries

Music Ministry

Our Choir meets Wednesday night at 7:00 for those who are interested in singing.

We do lead the music for the service each week and do choir specials, Cantatas, and also like to let members preform as soloists or duets, trios and other ensembles.

We strive to play a wide variety of music from traditional to contemporary to country to rock as long as it praises God. Everyone who loves or desires to sing is accepted so come on out and join us!

Wednesday Night Supper

Wednesday Night Supper

Wednesdays are special ministry days, our foundation is the 6:00 pm free Supper.

We build on that by following with Youth Night for the kids and a Prayer and Devotion time for the adults.

Choir practice typically follows at 7:30 for those who are interested in singing.

I always hear ” and a good time was had by all”!  So I would put this on your list of things to check at Wacissa UMC!

VBS

Vacation Bible School – the old summertime ministry staple!

Yes, we do that too and we do it well. If you haven’t seen or had your kids involved in our VBS program then they are pure and simple missing out.

We have the best time at VBS,  combining great music and fun with serious and pertinent age appropriate biblical lessons.

This summer make plans for your kids to be part of our Vacation Bible School Adventure.

Prayer Quilts

One of our special outreach ministries is our prayer quilt ministry.  When we are aware of a special need or situation in someone’s life that needs special prayer, our quilting ladies get to work and a prayer quilt is born.

Each quilt then is hung in the sanctuary and prayed over for several weeks and each prayer that is lifted is marked with a knot on the quilts prayer strings.

Our congregation takes this ministry quite seriously and prays fastidiously over these quilts and the prayer request that was made known to us. Finally the quilt is mailed or taken to the person(s) involved along with a card from the church. Recipients are prayer warriors alike report that this ministry moves mountains!

Linda Daughtrey started the quilt ministry at Wacissa United Methodist in 2006.  Eight years before she had breast cancer and the Lord brought her through that.  She thought, “what can I do to give back that grace?”  So the quilt ministry was born in her heart for others.  Rather than cropping the strings on the quilts, she left them long.  People in the church prayed over the quilts and tied a knot for each prayer in the strings.  The church has given over 500 quilts over the years.

Linda’s life was cut short by multiple cancers but she had repaid the Lord’s grace for eight years.

Today, the quilt ministry goes forward with Linda Falzone and Jan McCall carrying on the grace for Linda Daughtrey.
Thanks be to God!
