F.U.M.C. NEEDS YOU....
… to serve on one of the committees listed below. These groups carry on the work of Christ to those inside and outside of the church, and we want to be fully-staffed when the new year begins in the fall. So please consider donating your time and talents to …
CHURCH GROWTH Sponsors events such as winter concerts on a Sunday afternoon in January & February as well as the spring Swap Meet. These not only provide great opportunities to introduce new people to the church; they raise $$$ which we use to purchase advertising.
CARE COUNCIL Coordinates programs of compassion in the name of Christ to members in need. These include Christmas cards to shut-ins and those living far away, service of remembrance to honor those we’ve lost during the year, Healthy Living bulletin board and photo bulletin board, and helping hands to those going in to or coming out of the hospital.
MISSIONS Hosts holiday outreach efforts such as Christmas gifts to kids & veterans and chooses missions programs to be funded by monies collected on Communion Sundays.
How many of you know we have a library in the church? It is located on the North end of the narthex. There are many Bible reference books, inspirational books and many fiction books that are Christian based. Come take a look. We are not using the card system any longer (unless the book already is cataloged). If the book has an envelope inside the cover, take the card out and enter the date and your name on the card and put it in the box (alphabetically) that is on the desk near the library exit. Those books that have no card inside the cover will be on the honor system. It will be stamped with the church name so you can remember where you return it. We have a lot of new books that will be added in the next few weeks, so come and see.
