March Communion!

By Lane Gardner Camp, Memphis Conference Director of Communications

In recognition of the 35th anniversary of the Memphis Conference’s annual Lenten Hunger Offering, 35 percent church participation is the goal for the 2018 campaign that will run from Ash Wednesday, Feb. 14, to Easter Sunday, April 1. 

Established in 1983, the offering once known as the Lenten World Hunger Offering was shortened to Lenten Hunger Offering (LHO) in 2016 to help stress local hunger needs alongside world hunger issues.

2018 marks the campaign’s 35th anniversary. Over the years the Memphis Conference has raised more than $2 million for hunger relief.


Saturday March 10th the mission team will be putting together Blessing bags.
We will meet at 3:00p.m. in the Open Door Classroom
Blessing bag items

  • 16oz Bottled Water
  • Peanut Butter/Cheese Crackers
  • Granola Bars
  • Beef Stick (slim Jims)
  • Tooth Paste

Tax-Aide is a free tax preparation service for low to moderate income taxpayers with priority given to senior citizens. This service is sponsored by the IRS and the AARP Foundation and is offered by local tax counselors who are trained to prepare simple to mildly complex returns.
Tax-Aide locations in the Paducah area include Concord UMC, the Senior Citizens Center, and the Paducah Library. Tax-Aide service hours at Concord will be every Tuesday afternoon in the Wesley Classroom (Please use the front parking lot door), 1:00 to 6:00 pm. – Feb 7th thru April 11th .
If you or any of your family and friends are interested in having taxes prepared at Concord, please call 270-556-7141 (Sandra Miller’s cell phone) to set up an appointment.


Easter Egg Hunt
This year Concord will not be having a community wide Easter Egg Hunt since the local schools’ spring break starts Easter weekend.  We will have a small Easter Egg Hunt on Wednesday, March 28th during BLAST.  We will still need plastic eggs and candy for the egg hunt.  There will be a donation box in the Narthex for candy and eggs. We hope to have a community wide egg hunt again next year. Easter is the third Sunday and hopefully it will not conflict with spring break.



Spring Spruce UP!
