This THURSDAY. May 10, 2018. Campbell United Methodist Church is hosting a 7 pm Gospel concert featuring the Diplomats from Atlanta, GA and local quartet 4Calvary that features Campbell UMC’s own Mr. Paul Baum! Doors open at 6 pm.

Hospitality Coordinator Glee Kieny is asking for help with greeting and ushering…as we expect a crowd!

Several other churches and communities are sending groups (we have received calls from as far away as West Plains, MO, as well as calls from local churches bringing groups) – so our need for hospitality help is significant. This is an opportunity for our church to once again make its very best hospitality effort as we are known for doing!

We simply need some folks to say hello at our entry points and pass the plates during the Love Offering. If you can help at all, PLEASE contact Glee Kieny at gkieny@campbellumc.org or at 417-881-2018 or reach Bill Huff at bhuff@campbellumc.org or at 417-459-7601 (cell) – thanks to all and we can’t wait to see you there! All are invited!!


Our caseworker has withdrawn her request for funding for the behavioral therapy program for the young foster girl because she did not qualify for the program.   If you have already donated towards this cause, we can keep the donation in our fund for the next request, or we can return your donation.

Thank you for all of your generosity, and please keep this young girl in your prayers ❤️.


We have had a request from our caseworker at Ambassadors for Children.   This request is for a 14 year old foster child that is having some behavior issues. The child has been to Lakeland hospital and received outpatient counseling with little success.   Her foster parents are determined to try to keep her out of residential care and keep her in their loving home.   Her care team feels like an intensive 16 week program through Teen Challenge Ministry   would be very beneficial for her.   Unfortunately, this program is costly, approximately $1000.00, and not covered through Medicaid. Would anyone be able to make a financial contribution towards this therapy program for this young girl?   No contribution is too small… if you are able to do so, you can donate through the church office of by marking your offering on Sunday with a notation for adopt a caseworker, or by contacting Becky Solari 848-9052.


Thank you for always being so generous to our adopt a caseworker program!

There are times when you hear that you should have been at church to hear something truly special, but you look back in regret because you missed it.  Please do not let this be one of those times!

All are welcome and all are invited to attend what promises to be an enormously uplifting and spiritually rewarding experience as the Watoto Children’s Choir performs in the Campbell UMC Sanctuary this coming Saturday evening, April 21, 2018, at 6 pm.  Invite those you know to come and hear this amazing choir of Ugandan orphans as they minister with voices, instruments, energy, life, vibrant visuals, and incredible music.

Many remember the last time Watoto visited over a decade ago, and the experience was so richly rewarding that they plan to attend again this weekend.  You will not want to say “I should have gone”.  You will be very glad to be able to say “We went and heard the good news!”

Our God reigns!  Come and hear these gifted young people sing and share about it and be sure to tell everyone you know!

Due to continued rain, and the forecast for more precipitation and colder temperatures this weekend, all Easter weekend activities will be moved inside.

The Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday March 31st will be held  inside the building.

Come hunt anytime between 10-11 am. There will be 3 age categories spread out over the building and plenty of eggs so families can hunt together. Please enter through the west side doors. Invite your friend and neighbors!

The Easter Sunrise worship service will be led by the Youth in the Sanctuary. Worship will begin at 6:30am – all are welcome!

Run for the Son

This Sunday, March 18th is the last Sunday to sign up in the Fellowship Hall for Run for the Son event which is scheduled for March 24th.

We have had a request from Ambassadors for Children … I am hoping we can help them out with this!   A family who has taken in a sibling group to foster is in need of a gently used dresser..does anyone have one they are willing to part with?   If you do could you please contact me, Becky Solari at 417-848-9052 as soon as possible , so that we can set up arrangements for pick up?   I appreciate you all so much!
