"March Forth In Faith" is our campaign to bring a new Family Life & Ministry Center to life at Swansboro United Methodist Church.

Ministry Fair - February 19, 2012: Every committee that receives money from the SUMC budget was represented at the Ministry Fair. We feel our church family is more aware now of how the budgeted funds are spent as well as  the activities of the various committees. Each are important in the role they play in the life of the church. Pictures from the fair are below.

            Co-chairs Sid & Marcie Briley and Jay Ahlquist

Five Vision Awareness Gatherings were held during February to share information and encourage prayer for the program.
