Ambassadors for Children

We have had a special request from one of our caseworkers… A biological family ( who’s child is at risk for going in to foster care) has asked for us to help pay for lodging costs while their child is a patient at St. Louis children’s hospital. The Ronald McDonald house is full and they are staying at the Haven House which is $40 a night.   The child is expected to be hospitalized for at least 2 weeks.  If you can donate toward this cause, please mark your donation with ambassadors for children and put it in the collection plate on Sunday, or message Becky Solari if you have any questions or need to donate a different way.

Thank you so much!

Vacation Bible School Donations

We have had a tremendous response already for the need for computer monitors and keyboards for Vacation Bible school donations.  We DO NOT need any more. We have plenty already. Those people who talked with Jill on Sunday can still plan to donate, but we will not need any more than that. Thank you so much for your generosity!

If you would still like to donate, here are some of the items we still  need:

packages of new, white t-shirts (size Youth L, XL,  and Adult S and M)

rope lights, push lights, pool noodles (preferably new), toilet paper and paper towel tubes, comic strip newspapers, other super hero type props and decorations


Please place VBS donations in the box in the Fellowship Hall next to the VBS sign.

Blue Sunday is this coming Sunday, April 10th at Campbell UMC and there are all sorts of ways to get involved!

  • All are welcome to wear BLUE to church on Sunday!
  • All are welcome to stay following worship on Sunday, April 10th to have a talk-back session about what we have heard that morning about child abuse in our community – we will process together, pray together and vision about how we can change what is happening to the most vulnerable among us. Lunch will be available to purchase for $10 each and a nursery will be provided as well. Please RSVP by Friday, April 8th to Pastor Emily at pastorelc44@gmail.com.
  • You can serve foster children through Ambassadors for Children. April 10th is also National Sibling Day and this awesome organization is sponsoring an event for foster children in the Ozarks area. Some foster siblings get separated to different homes during their time of transition and Ambassadors for Children wants to get them together for a night at Chesterfield Family Center. How can you help? You can find the signup sheet to volunteer for the event itself in the fellowship hall or chat to the Ambassadors for Children reps that will be here on Sunday morning. They need people to signup to volunteer for the event that evening, people to signup to clean up after the event (must be safe sanctuary trained within the last two years for both of these options), and/or sign up to provide kid-friendly snacks, drinks, treats for approximately 250 people. Bring your donations to the church either on Sunday morning or by 5 pm and Pastor Emily will take them to Chesterfield Family Center for you.Blue Sunday - Print Logo


All are invited this Sunday, April 3, to Campbell United Methodist Church at 8:20, 9:30, or 10:50 a.m., and have the opportunity to worship God and experience the body of Christ as an instrument of hope and peace wrapped in song.

The Adult Choir and String Orchestra with Harp will present “Sanctuary: A Musical of Hope and Peace”. Hear the poetic words of Whitman, Levertov, Hopkins, Adams, and Angelou interspersed with the beautiful choral and orchestral works of composer Joseph Martin.

We would be honored to have you attend and invite others to do the same that all may be a part of this special morning of music!
