It’s all part of the Paducah District’s Mission Blitz. Methodist churches in the Purchase will be doing hands on work to improve their communities. Sunday evening March 9th, regional church leaders will gather in Paducah to share their stories. In Clinton, a similar celebration will be held during Soul Café beginning with a light supper at 5:30 followed by a praise service.
The children involved in Clinton First Methodist Wednesday afterschool program shared their smiles and crafts with nursing home residents.
Pastor Stan Walden told church members on the Sunday after Mission Blitz that "we get more out of what we are doing than the people we are doing it for."
