World Communion Day
Sunday October 5, 2014 (3-4:30pm)
The service will last about an hour and fifteen minutes with time at the end for fellowship and light snacks. There will be singing, testimonies, communion, and times of extended prayer. The focus of the service is to glorify God by celebrating Communion together as a united body of believers.
Who is Invited?
The York River District Youth are hosting the service by helping to set up, organize, and participate in the event. However, our hope is that people from all generations will join us in celebrating Communion together. While the service is organized by the United Methodist Church, it is also our hope that other Christians and visitors from the community would join us as well.
The old Methodist Tabernacle in Mathews County has a long history of holding Christian services and meetings but has not been used consistently for several years. It is privately owned now and remains a historic landmark in the community. It is a rustic, open-air facility with wooden benches.

York River District clergy and laity gathered on Sunday, August 10 to celebrate the installation of Seonyoung Kim as their new District Superintendent. District clergy led a dancing processional to “We Are Marching in the Light of God.” They were joined by Bishop Young Jin Cho, DSs Ted Smith (Fredericksburg) and Bob Parks (Farmville), and Conference Lay Leader Warren Harper, among other service participants. DS Kim’s wish was for the joy of the moment to set the tone of her tenure in the York River District: we are marching, dancing, singing, and praying in the light of God.
Representatives from the District and Conference participated in a covenant service, giving Rev. Kim symbols of her responsibilities in the District. Several individuals and groups shared their singing talents: Rev. Hyung Il Moon, Josh Hagstrom, and the York River District Youth Choir.
