We are excited to host a picnic and gathering of the folks of the Shawnee Valley District. It is important that we get to know each other and have an opportunity to fellowship together. We will play, eat, prepare for our Annual Conference at Lakeside, take up an offering for Disaster Response and be challenged through the preaching of Bishop Gregory Palmer. We will worship together under the leadership of the New Hope UMC band.

Our special offering will go towards supporting our Disaster Response Ministry. UMCOR has publicized the need for Health Kits. You can prepare an entire Health Kit (specific instructions here), bring separate items for the kits or bring a monetary donation ($12 is the approximate cost of one kit). This is just another way you can make a difference!
Dress- Comfortable Clothing so you can have fun and relax; bring a lawn chair!!
In case of rain, they have a large lodge and we will just move inside.
