Ways to Keep In Touch With Your Church Family

  • Call Your Friends: Groups and phone chains aside, we also encourage everyone to take this time to check in with your friends and families. As many engage in social distancing for safety, it's more important than ever to reach out! Call, text, email, send a letter...anything will do to let those you love know you're thinking of them.

  • Online Sermons: Sermons will be recorded (now in VIDEO format) and posted on our Home page. So, each Sunday morning you can tune in there to hear the newest message! Previous sermons from the last couple weeks will be archived on our Worship page if you miss one.

EAC Committee Members Wanted: by Alex Konya

The Educational Assistance Committee is looking for people interested in helping our youth. The Committee started in the 1970’s at First UMC of Easton when the members of the Wesley Class decided to help students from the church with their higher education expenses. To-date, we have helped 48 church members by lending over $98,000 in interest-free loans. Loans can be used for college, vocational or technical school classes.


In addition to the loan program, the Committee also grants the Jack H. LaFever Memorial Achievement Award, a scholarship given to a deserving member of Green Pond UMC who is graduating from high school. The Award has grown from $100 at its inception to $1,000 annually. We have awarded 31 Memorial scholarships, totaling almost $25,000. The LaFever Fund has also been used to help the church’s youth group.


The Committee usually meets once a year, in May, to discuss our finances and discuss/vote upon loan and Award applications. If you are interested in serving Green Pond and helping its youth, please contact Alex Konya at 610-354-2234 or to discuss.
