The Raytown First United Methodist Church is closing their doors.  The Missouri Conference has asked us to step in so that we can maintain a ‘United Methodist’ presence in that area.  June 22nd will be the last Sunday that Raytown UMC will be in service and on June 29th, “Woods Chapel UMC-Raytown Campus” will hold our first service in the building. 
There is a great need in the community around the church.  Michael Scott along with others from our church will be preaching and will help revitalize the ministries of this church. 
This is a pretty low risk way for us to try and expand the kingdom.  If we are not able to successfully restore ministry in this new setting, the conference will simply sell the building and use the money to start new churches.

We will be sharing more opportunities about Woods Chapel UMC-Raytown Campus soon!  There is a work day on May 17th to do some clean up and painting.  Let me know if you are interested in being involved.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
