Dear FUMC Family,

HOT is the word of the week! The expected heat of August arrived a little late and thankfully will not last long. This week on Wednesday,  After-School Youth and Children's Ministries kicked off.  Community Groups are beginning to meet this month also. In couple weeks, we will gather for "Come to the Table"a churchwide Fried Chicken Sunday Dinner after worship to get a jump start also.  September at FUMC is a season of fresh beginnings whether hot temperatures are holding on or not.
