Welcome Back Sunday

Mark your calendars as Sunday, September 10th is Welcome Back Sunday at Katonah/Purdys United Methodist Churches.

As the summer winds down and we all get back to our routines with school starting for our youth, please join us as we gather once again to worship together in the sanctuary in Katonah.

Pastor Lori is eager to share ‘What’s in the Wonder Bag’ during worship. And the Sunday School teachers are excited to begin Church School again and will be teaching from the "Grow, Proclaim, Serve!" curriculum where the children will journey through the bible with stories, fun crafts, giggles and singing.

Pastor Lori and our Church School teachers are eager to Welcome you Back! We look forward to worshiping and fellowship together! See you there! We are still seeking one or two volunteers to host fellowship after worship on that day, please e-mail Erika at to sign up.
