Senoia UMC men pitch in, build ramp for local woman

The United Methodist Men of Senoia United Methodist Church carried the ministry of the church outside the walls into our community on Saturday, June 23. Long time member, Mrs. Eron Crook, had become homebound due to her declining health. Access to her home required negotiating stairs at every entrance making it nearly impossible for her to leave her home - even for doctor visits.

The men of the church contacted the family and arranged to provide the labor to build her a ramp providing access into and out of her home. Under the leadership of Ken Hazelton, the men met at the home and began construction. As a further assist, the men (along with several of the women of the church) trimmed the shrubbery around the home so that it will look kept as well as improve safety by making the home more visible.

A great day of service was had along with grand fellowship, some good food, and hard work. By the end of the day the yard looked nice, and Mrs. Crook can now enter and exit her home with relative ease.

Senoia UMC welcomes everyone to join them for worship Sunday's at 10:55 a.m. for a traditional style of worship under the leadership of pastor, Rev. Nathaniel A Long. For up to date information on church activities, visit their website: www.senoiaumc.org
