Spring Fair, May 6, 2016

It's time again to start planning for the Spring Fair. Spring Fair will be MAY 6, 2016. If you have any questions or ideas, please talk to Pat Hewitt.   Also, a good time to set aside good household items you no longer want when doing your Spring cleaning!  Please join me, Pat Hewitt, in making this year another successful event.

Fellowship Hour:

Please consider signing up for Fellowship Hour.  In can either be for between services and/or after 10 a.m. Worship Service!  Starting in March, Birthday Fellowship will be between services and again following the 10 a.m. Worship Service.  Please join us in celebrating each other’s birthdays each month.  This birthday celebration will happen on the First Sunday of each month, but there are other Sundays available for you to host a fellowship hour.  This is a good opportunity to enjoy fellowship time after service.


Crop Walk will be April 9, 2017 at 1:30 starting here at First UMC.  Please support the First UMC Singles group as they will be walking.  Donation sign-ups will be in the Welcome Center. 


 Book Club News:

April Book Club News: The book club will meet on Wednesday, April 19th at the parsonage at 6:30 PM.  The book of the month is "The Innocent Man" Murder and Injustice in a small town.  Author John Grisham's first work of nonfiction, an exploration of small-town justice gone terrible awry, is his most extraordinary legal thriller yet.  

May Book Club News: The book club will meet on Wednesday, May 17th at the parsonage at 6:30 PM. The book of the month in May is "All the Light we Cannot See" by author Anthony Doerr.  Please remember to write a couple of quotes from the book, that have a particular meaning for you, and the group will discuss them. Any questions, please contact Patrice Hunt.

We welcome the fresh perspective and variety each reader brings to the pulpit on Sunday mornings.  Of course, we always appreciate the contributions of those who sign up regularly, looking forward to their continued participation.  So, as we embark on the journey, let’s share the joy of sharing His word with one another. There are still spots available.   Sign-up sheets for 8:30 or 10:00 service (your preference) are available in the Welcome Center. Thank you for your support.
