Memorial Day weekend ushered in the ninth season of Stockton United Methodist Church’s lakeside worship, The Connection. Led by Pastor Jim Coffer, The Connection features prayers, scripture and music designed to connect people with Jesus Christ. Worship 8:30-9 a.m. each Sunday through Labor Day. Meet in the hotel banquet room until lake levels go down, then at the picnic area near “I” dock at Orleans Trail Marina. Lake attire is encouraged. All are welcome: local residents, boaters, campers and lake visitors.
