If you can donate any of the above, please let Pastor Emily know at pastorelc44@gmail.com ASAP and have the donations here by Friday, April 29th, 2016 at NOON.

Thank you in advance for being the hands and feet of Jesus Christ!

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.

Questions? Please contact Jill jupp@campbellumc.org  881-2018


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!

Our CAMPBELL CONCERT SERIES is back on this Saturday evening, March 19 at 6:30 pm as 4CALVARY joins us in Concert!!

4Calvary is a Southern Gospel Quartet based out of Nixa, MO. The group started out as a conversation between two co-workers and has grown by leaps and bounds over the last couple of years.

4Calvary performs in all types and sizes of venues all over the Midwest and Midsouth and they are bringing their unique style and music to Campbell UMC. The group performs gospel standards and songs currently in radio play, with something for everyone in their performances.

All are invited! $5 entry at the door with concert in the sanctuary. Proceeds above expenses go to support the Campbell UMC Imagine Fund.

Please come and invite family and friends to enjoy their excellent harmonies! See you there!!

Egg Hunt - 2016.jpg

Campbell’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt will be Saturday, March 26th at 10 a.m.

We will have games, crafts and activities in the gym. Children will be dismissed from the gym by ages for the egg hunt, which will be held outside. Bring your friends, family and neighbors! Don’t forget your Easter basket too!
Volunteers are needed to help with the games in the gym and hiding eggs before.
Please contact Jill at jupp@campbellumc.org if you can help.
– We are also still in need of candy to fill the eggs. –

Run for the Son

Run for the Son is almost here with a little over a week until the big day.  We will have a lot of fun running or walking together. You can choose to do either the 5k or 1mile, but you will need to sign up right away.  To sign up you can come by the church and fill out a registration form, print one off and mail it in or go to actnowracing.com and signup online.    What a wonderful healthy way to come together and worship our risen Lord.  I look forward to you joining at our 2nd annual  Run (or walk) for the Son on Saturday, March 26th at 9:00a.m..  And don’t forget to make sure to stay for the children’s Easter party and Egg Hunt at 10:00a.m.   

 Looking forward to seeing you here!
