Upcoming Guest Speaker


Ivan Chetambe, a graduate of Living Hope High School in western Kenya, will be visiting the West Virginia Annual Conference in June.  He will speak at annual conference and will visit several West Virginia churches.  Morris Memorial will be one of the few churches where he will preach on a Sunday morning.  Ivan will preach at both of our services on June 18.  He is twenty years old. 

    

Living Hope High School is a Christian school started by Marilyn Uhl, from Pendleton County, West Virginia.  The school is fully accredited.  It has 92 students and an annual budget of $157,000.  It is supported by United Methodist churches in the United States, and particularly
by churches in West Virginia.

There are no free public high schools in Kenya. Impoverished children cannot afford the fees required for the typical Kenyan high school. Uneducated youth are at risk for malnutrition, disease, sex trafficking, gangs and drug addiction.  Living Hope provides three meals per day, clean living and study spaces, and medical care.  Students receive 8 hours of concentrated instruction per day.  Classes which are offered include biology, chemistry, physics, algebra, calculus, trigonometry, English, Swahili, history, geography, and Christian studies.  They use a science lab which was made possible by contributions from our church.  Students worship twice each day.  There is a minister on the staff of the school.

 

Get to Know Your Neighbors

     You are invited to come to Pita Pit in Kanawha City on Friday evenings in June to get to know your neighbors in your pew and your neighbors in the community.  We will meet at 6 p.m. Pita Pit is not far from the church building.  It is on MacCorkle Ave., just beyond the middle school on the same side as the school. 

     Fellowship is important to any church, but it is even more important to a church which has two different worship services.  Because so many of our folks always worship at 8:30 or always worship at 11:00, many of our regulars are not acquainted with one another.   Meeting at Pita Pit also gives us the opportunity to meet some folks who do not attend any church.  We hope that over time we will get to know employees and regular customers.  If we are going to bring new people into our church and introduce them to Christ we need to go where people are.
