                                    TRANSPORTATION CAREGIVER GUIDELINES      
    The intent of the Transportation Caregiver Program is to provide
    transportation to worship on  Sunday mornings and at other days and times
    that worship is held (Ex: Good Friday).  Transportation would also be available
    to church events that may occur at other times and days of  the week (Ex:
    Club 80 Luncheon) and other needs that may arise.

    To procure a ride, a member should call Don Hastings (203-877-4554) or Judy
    Darak (203-874-5881).  If at all possible, at least a 24-hour notice would be
    helpful, but an attempt will be made to deal with last minute situations or

    USHERS:  Like people?  Like church?  Like to be helpful?  Ushers, along with
    greeters, welcome our worshippers before 10 a.m. worship on Sunday.  They

    Communion.  They are scheduled on a periodic basis.  If you are interested in
    being an usher or learning more about this important ministry, please speak
    with or contact Dennis Darak (203.988.3554/

    Mary Taylor Memorial United Methodist Church is a community
    growing in God’s grace and love.  We are committed to following
    Christ’s teaching and example by heeding his call to feed the
    hungry, welcome the stranger, preach the good news, teach our
    children and youth, and visit the sick, homebound and
    imprisoned.  We recognize and celebrate the diversity of God’s
    creation and God’s gifts.  As disciples of our Lord, we publicly
    acknowledge, welcome and support people of all races, genders,
    sexual orientations and gender identities, ages, nationalities,
    ethnicities, abilities and socio-economic situations.  Our
    welcome knows no boundaries.  Called by the Holy Spirit to share
    a ministry that reflects God’s love and justice, we embrace and
    honor all who participate in the ministries and leadership of our

The Rev. Cynthia (Cindy) Dodd will be the staff person responsible for our Healing and Wholeness Ministry and Monday night
worship beginning July 1 with the title “Pastor of Healing      Ministry.”  She will be a leader among leaders in the Monday
night, 7 p.m. “Healing and Wholeness” Chapel worship; and recruit and train prayer anointers who serve the last Sunday of
each month in 10 a.m. worship. The Rev. Dodd has also been part of  our “Healing and Wholeness” Ministry since its
inception over ten years ago.  

We thank Pastor Hal Vink for his many years of leadership in this ministry.  Pastor Hal  retired from this staff position on
June 30th.    We are delighted he desires to continue in a volunteer capacity and he and Jane will remain active at
MTMUMC.   Staff-Parish will determine an appropriate event to honor Pastor Hal’s staff ministry in the near future.
