One day while we were kibitzing in the Thrift Shop, Don Gould mentioned that he’d just purchased a very nice Joseph Banks suit, worth upwards of $400, for the bargain price of 50 cents. He was grateful but also a little chagrined. Can’t we charge more for a nice suit than 50 cents?

Churches like Harwich UMC can make a difference! Over the years there have been countless instances of missional outreach, as well as situations when the congregation has coordinated hands-on-help for members who are sick, grieving or otherwise in need.

Grace is a United Methodist and Episcopal community in Christ co-led by an Episcopal priest and a semi-retired UMC pastor. I attended worship there on July 9, and introduced myself to Rev.
