Blogging Your Feelings  If you feel led to contribute your ideas or thoughts to a collection on our website, contact Pastor Bo or the church office.  No writing experience necessary – just write what you are feeling in this strange new world.

Giving Statements  Please contact Katie at for a copy of your giving through April.  She will gladly send it to you via email or USPS.

Navajo Nation Relief  Your gift will go directly to the families who need it.  Mail your check to First United Methodist Church of Cortez, PO Box 1016, Cortez, CO 81321.  Mark checks on memo line for Navajo COVID Relief Project.  Thank you.

Itching to Get Outside? The church is in need of re-painting.  Pastor Bo has volunteered to prep areas, so that all you need to do is show up and paint. Email him at and arrange your time slot.

Giving  We have a new method of giving, the mobile app GivePlus.  Download the free app and find our church by entering the zip code, 97221, or Vermont Hills United Methodist.  If you already use our online giving, enter that username and password, or create a new account.  You can give either from your bank account or a credit card.  You have the option to add 1 – 2.65% to offset the fees charged to the church.

Amazon Smile  Do you shop online? Amazon will donate a small percentage to VHUMC for every eligible purchase.  You must designate Vermont Hills as your charity of choice and start at every visit.  Contact the church office with any questions.

Fred Meyer Community Rewards  If you shop at Freddy’s, please make sure to link your FM Rewards card with Vermont Hills United Methodist Church (code SY323) and the church will receive a percentage of all your purchases.  It costs you nothing and you still receive all your usual benefits.

Talk N Thought  The “dynamite” ladies of TnT are meeting in the circle drive at the church when the weather isn’t too threatening.  Every Tuesday at 1:00 pm.  If you’d like to be included in their email list, please notify Linda Miller.
