Church trustees have launched a major fundraising campaign to replace its "beyond repair" organ. A reconditioned one has been located and will cost $16,000. if you can, please mail a check to SUMC, Box 93, STM 08248 to help defray the costs. Donations may also be made In Memory of or In Honor Of someone (IMO/IHO). Regardless of your religious preference, SUMC has been home to countless concerts, funeral and memorial services, hymn sings and Sunday services. It's "the town's" church.
Last fall, the SIA made a donation of $500.00 to help defray some of the costs of the winter season. Here's hoping you'll be able to offer financial support, too.
