  • Thanks to all those that helped make the United Methodist Men's "Law Enforcement Appreciation Breakfasta success this past Tuesday morning. Breakfast casserole, ham, sausage, French toast and fruit were served in our fellowship hall and enjoyed by 30 members of the Canton Police Department and the Madison County Sheriff's Department.  Ten of our UMM members were on hand to cook, serve and personally thank these brave men and women for what they do every day to keep our community safe.  Hopefully, this will become an annual event.
  • The Quilt Ministry has quilts hanging. Please go by and say a prayer and then tie a knot on each quilt.
