From the Lay Leader’s Desk: 

Posted Sunday, June 9, 2019 - Pentecost Sunday


Maundy Thursday - April 18, 2019
1 Corinthians 11:23-26 
For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”


Upper New York Area Resident Bishop Mark J. Webb has announced regional gatherings that he will be hosting throughout the Upper New York Conference in April and May. These regional gatherings will primarily focus on unpacking the Judicial Council's decision regarding the constitutionality of the petitions that made up the Traditional Plan affirmed by the delegates of the 2019 Special Session of The General Conference. It will also be a time to help attendees to understand what becomes part of the Book of Discipline on January 1, 2020 and what does not.  These times will include an opportunity for questions and conversation about what God might be doing in and through The United Methodist Church in the future. There will be a brief time of worship at each gathering as well.

May 13, 2019 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at Cicero UMC


Basic Lay Servant Class - Graduation Sunday February 17, 2019


Joann, Mary, Pastor Blessed, Bernard and John



Happy New Year, I pray that this year will be as rewarding as 2018 was for our church. What membership growth we have experienced this past year. Our church is blessed to have some many families joining us in worship and mission. We have enjoyed many new and fun ways to share the Good News of the Gospel. Looking back at 2018 I wonder how we were able to do it all. Please let me just mention a few.


Our Holy Week dinner and passion service, picnic and baptism along the Seneca River, front lawn service and cook-out, and Blessing of the Animals. As well as Cluster lunches, UMM breakfasts, pizza night meetings, working Council dinners and many more special events. We are so blessed to have a very energetic pastor, always willing to try some new way to celebrate the Word of God.


What’s going to happen in first quarter of 2019?

(1) The Upper Room Prayer Line is every first Thursday of the month from 11am to 1pm in the church office. We are taking 9-14 calls in that 2-hour time slot. So many people are in need of prayer and someone to just listen to their needs. Anyone interested in helping with this prayer mission, please contact me.


(2) The Basic Lay Servant Class was held on Sundays from 12:30pm -3:00pm and started January 13 and ended February 17.


(3) Information Night for Holy Land & religious travel is on Saturday April 27. I am now working on the Oberammergau Passion Play in Germany for 2020. This very special Play has been performed in the village of Oberammergau for the past 380 years. It is only performed every ten years. E.O. offers the best Christian travel destinations


(4) The United Methodist Women are working so very hard on their primary mission, the weekly New-to-You clothing sale. The schoolhouse will be closed until April.


(5) The E.J. Thomas United Methodist Men continue to work hard on our commitment to our local veterans through the Cpl. Kyle R. Schneider Foundation. We have a breakfast every second Saturday of the month at 8:30 am. We alternate churches each month, so reach out to me or Doug MacEwen for more information.

Pastor Judy delivered an amazing tribute to all of the heroes who keep us safe past and present.
All current members who are serving in the military and those who have served in the past were honored.
