Lunch Bunch:  Open to all seniors! The group meets the second Friday of each month at 11:30 AM at Rene’s Dinner in East Berlin. It is a time of good Christian fellowship while enjoying lunch. Lead by Darlene Heebner.

Prayer Meeting:  Everyone is invited to the Prayer Meetings every first and third Sunday evening of the month at 7:00 PM.

We are a community of Christians who believe in the power of prayer. For more information see Jane McCauslin.

New Hope brings a mobile trailer to YSUMC the third Wednesday of each month from 3:00 – 4:00 pm for those in need.  Volunteers are needed from each church and are asked to arrive at 2:00 pm.  See Pastor Trish for more information.

Ruth’s Harvest packs food bags for students at Bermudian Springs Elementary and Middle Schools.

YSUMC collects raisins, macaroni & cheese, and juice boxes. Donations can be dropped off in our church hallway.

Monthly Missions:  Each month, we  select one organization to financially support through giving above and beyond our regular tithing.
