Don't Forget to Order UMCH White Christmas Materials

It is time to be ordering White Christmas materials for the upcoming Advent Season.  The UMCH is very excited about new resources this year which includes a 2017 Advent “scratch off” calendar and other downloadable materials.  The Advent Calendar will be perfect for each church member to have in their home during the season and would also make a great take away for a Children’s moment.
