Polson UMC Day of Remembrance Tree Planting

July 13, 2021
In June, FUMC Polson, Montana planted trees at their church and also at Flathead Lake Camp to remember the members who had died in 2020 during the COVD pandemic. In addition, a tree was planted in honor of Kris Murphy, who supervised the vaccination response for the Confederated Salish Kootenai Tribes. FUMC also served as a temporary vaccination site for CSKT, when their original location was unavailable.

As individual churches, you are welcome to choose a day for remembering those siblings who have been lost in the past year amidst tremendous change. Click here for more information on how you can set aside a Day of Remembrance for your church and community.

How are you connecting with your community this summer? The Community Engagement team of the Mountain Sky Conference encourages you to pick a project, volunteer in mission, start a new group, work on leadership development – the possibilities are endless. Then, sometime between today and September 1, tell us about it! Selected stories will be celebrated via Mountain Sky communication vehicles such as Ministry Crossroads. As we continue to build our connection, we celebrate the ways that faith communities are engaged. By sharing how you are involved, you inspire others and share knowledge with those communities that have the same challenges and opportunities as you! Check out our link for more details and feel free to share across the Conference.
