Dear Fumc Family,
I hope you are making plans to attend the Third Annual "Come to the Table" next Sunday, September 22, immediately following worship. It will be so awesome to have a Sunday Fried Chicken Meal together! In worship, on Sunday, you can make your reservations. There will be a Ministry Fair as well along with a dedication of the Parlor Kitchen following the meal. It will be a special day for the church family!
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday! We will continue the sermon series,"Write your Story". We study Isaiah 64:8-9 and Jeremiah 18:1-2 together as we look at our lives as clay in the potter's hand. The potter is God and through God's constant faithfulness at all times of our lives we are being shaped into beautiful vessels.
During the month of September, the Mission Committee invites you donate jars of peanut butter to be given to the Backpack Program for School Age Children. As I send this to you, I am thankful that 118 container of peanut butter have been donated. Hopefully we can collect 200 jars by the end of the month. On a side note, apparently Jiff is a favor brand of the church family. More jars of Jiff have been given then any other brand.
Last Sunday the Children's Ministry hosted a "Back to School Bash" in my backyard. It was a 100 degrees but the children had fun swimming and the parents as well as grandparents enjoyed visiting with each other.
This Sunday at 5:00 pm the Committee on Leadership and Nominations will meet. Persons on the committee are;
God is Faithful!
Don't just come to church, Be the CHURCH!
