Pulpit Exchange

Beginning this month our pastor, Laurel Scott, will participate in a Pulpit Exchange (once a month) within the local United Methodist church cluster.

On Sunday, April 10, we welcome Rev. Linda Peabody from Bolton UMC to join us for the 10:30 service as Pastor Laurel preaches at Bolton UMC.
Along with North UMC, the cluster includes:

South UMC (Manchester), Rockville UMC, Bolton UMC,
Crystal Lake Community UMC (Ellington), Wesley (East Hartford),
New Covenant (East Hartford), Vernon UMC

This is a great opportunity to bear witness to the message through various preachers who will bring their individual interpretations of the Word.
