Smith Valley UMC Brown Bag Lunch Speaker Series

We at Smith Valley UMC are initiating a new project called the Lunchtime @ Smith Valley: A Brown-Bag Series. We are inviting our church members and the entire community to pack a lunch and join us for a free afternoon of learning and fellowship. 

We’re having some very interesting speakers from a variety of backgrounds and experiences.

  • Our 3rd speaker, on August 9th, will be Heather Bottorff and Chad Harmon. They will discuss communications and relationships in all aspects of our lives including: marriage, parenting, workplace, and of course in our church family.

We will be meeting in our Welcome Center at noon on the second Thursday of the month.  We will supply beverages, paper products and eating utensils. We’re asking everyone to bring their own brown-bag lunch.

Please join us for an interesting and hopefully enlightening experience. We look forward to seeing you there.  Please call 317.881.1641 or email svumc@att.net the church office with any questions.
