We are beginning a new, fun program called "New Friends" here at MTMUMC. This new program will begin on Sunday, January 29. you sign up to participate, we will assign you a "New Friend" to whom you'll give a small gift each Sunday for three weeks, Jan 29, Feb 5, and Feb 12. You will also be receiving a gift each Sunday from your New Friend. Gifts may be homemade, such as cookies, a poem, or a card.

You can also give something you own that is meaningful. Your gifts can also be a small, purchased token gift (under $10 please, slightly more for the last Sunday). Gifts should be left in Dodd Hall before the worship service, and your gift claimed after the service. On the final Sunday, February 12, we will have a special New Friends luncheon where your "New Friend" will be revealed.

The New Friends program is a great way for adults, youth, and children in the church to get to know each other. If you are going to be away one of the first two Sundays, you can still participate. Just remember to bring two gifts for your New Friend the previous week.

We do ask that you only participate if you are able to be present for the New Friends luncheon on Sunday, February 12. The luncheon will be catered by the church.

If you and/ or your children would like to participate, please sign up beginning January 8, but no later than January 22. You can email the information to Marcia Winter at the email address below. You can also place your completed sign-up form in the box in the narthex, or bring them to the church office. By January 24, you will receive the information on your New Friend you will be giving to, so you will know who it is and what that person's interests are.

If you have any questions, please email Marcia Winter at or call her at 203-640-5941. We look forward to joining with you in this new program.
