The 4th of July will be here very soon and that means the 40th annual 4th of July Ice Cream Social will again to be held in front of the Methodist Church, starting at 1 p.m.
The origins of ice cream can be traced back to at least the 4th Century B. C. After the dessert was imported to the United States, several famous Americans served ice cream. Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson served ice cream to their guests. Dolly Madison served it in 1812. The first ice cream parlor opened in New York City in 1776. Community United Methodist Church started serving homemade ice cream to the Williams Community in 1973. The 4th of July Ice Cream Social is a community tradition for everyone to gather on the lawn at the Church, eat homemade ice cream, cool off a bit, and fellowship with friends and neighbors. Sisters in Spirit organize the social but the entire church participates. We accept a free will donation, with all money going to Good Neighbors. Over the years, local musicians have played and sung, we served hamburgers, hot dogs, chili, even if it rains. It has always been about the fellowship and the homemade ice cream. See you there: July 4, 1 p.m. at the corner of 2nd St. and Sherman Ave.
Sunday at 8:45 a.m. is Adult Bible Study, 9:50 a.m. is Prayer Before Worship, 10 a.m. is the Worship/Young Disciples Church and at 11:30 a.m. is Fellowship.
