I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday! The summer seems to be flying by in the blink of an eye. We've been trying to do some fun things in between work and other responsibilities. Maybe by the end of summer, I'll be able to tackle the really big hills on my bike.

Bumbaugh Family to sing

The Bumbaugh Family will be in concert on Sunday at the Washington Square UMC for the 10:45 a.m. morning service.  The church is at 538 Washington Ave. in Hagerstown.  

The Bumbaugh family has been in ministry since 1999.  Margaret is joined by two of her adult children, Fawn Stitely and Scott Bumbaugh, to create a warm blend of voices.  Shortly after the start of the ministry, the trio was accompanied by "The Bumbaugh Kids" to form a ministry that reaches a broader audience.   Singing together for eight years, the five cousins, range in age from 6 to 17.  They travel and sing with their family ministry and bring new excitement to the concert.  This Pennsylvania family has traveled the East Coast sharing the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.  The church is handicapped accessible from the parking lot at the rear of the church.
