of our Church family need your help! There are a few people who are unable to drive and rely
on the church van to attend services each Sunday. We need at least two new drivers to add to our dedicated crew
that picks up and drops off our members each week. |
driver is asked to drive only one Sunday per month. The only
requirements are that you are between the ages of 25 and 70 (due to
insurance regulations), have a valid California driver’s license and good driving
Consider a "Ride Sharing" approach: If you are willing and able to pick up one member who lives close to you, or on your way to and from church, on a more regular basis, perhaps weekly, that works even better.
Contact MJ Buist or Jill Gray through the church office (714-776-5710) for more information or to volunteer.
Please call today and
help us “get them to the Church on time!”
(with apologies to the Broadway musical).

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
GET PLUGGED IN!
A few months ago I shared about our District
Superintendent Mark Nakagawa’s words of wisdom that churches should create many
places for people to plug in. When someone takes the courageous step of visiting
our church, it’s always good to have one or more ideas for how they can get
So, it was exciting, several weeks ago, when our Youth Director,
Nicole Jackson pointed out to me, “James, AUMC now has a place for people of
every age group to plug-in!”
This is, in part, because Nicole has shifted her work with Young
Adults from Garden Grove UMC to our congregation as a result of budget cuts in
that church. Thankfully, AUMC is willing and able to provide a home for these
young adults who will meet weekly on Wednesday evening beginning in March.
Here is a current summary of our age-level fellowship and study
- Ages 0-12: Sunday School, VBS, Easter Eggs, Christmas Workshop
with Pastor MJ
- Ages 13-18: Sunday youth fellowship, retreats & service
projects with Nicole Jackson
- Ages 18-35: Young Adults: Weekly evening meetings with Nicole
- Ages 30-50: In Betweeners: Monthly fellowship activities with
Intern Jen Weyenberg
- Ages 50 +: Bible studies with Pastor James & MJ, Sunday School
with Mary Ann Jones
With this many outlets, AUMC can proudly say we not only welcome
people to visit, but to plug-in and stay. Thanks to everyone who has helped
make our ministries more complete and effective as we share Christ’s love with
Grace and Peace,
