Come Join Us !

Armed with doorknob hangers and a street map, many of our members visited houses within the 1-mile radius of our church.

Beth Paschall, our Diaconal Minister who coordinated this effort, gave the following instruction:

***

Dear Doorknob Hanger,

Yours is the important job of expressing neighborliness to the people living in the proximity of our church. We want to be a good neighbor.

Ring the doorbell. If someone comes to the door, introduce yourself. Say something like this:

"Palos United Methodist is celebrating its 70th anniversary next Sunday. We want you to at least stop over for coffee between 9:00 and 11:00 am, or to hear the Blue Grass Band at 1:45 pm.

"We want to be a good neighbor and be of any help possible. We are close enough that your kids could walk or bike over."
