Weekly Update

This Sunday: Hope for Old Age

Are you afraid of getting older? Do you fear how you might end up in your final days?

If so then you’re not alone! Each of us wonders sometimes what our future holds and it’s natural to be fearful of declining health. But old age brings many wonderful possibilities as well! This Sunday we’ll hear a wonderful story from the Bible about God bringing great blessing to a couple who were– ahem– “well seasoned.” There’s something to be said for the wisdom and confidence that comes from experience, too. But above all else, we can have confidence that God will take care of us no matter what our future holds.

Join us Sunday to find Hope for Old Age!

UMW Rummage Sale & Luncheon

The UMW Annual Rummage Sale will be Saturday, May 6th from 8am – 2pm. The UMW ladies will be setting up for this event on the mornings of Wednesday, May 3rd – Friday, May 5th from 9am – 3pm.  In addition to all that fun, for a sum of $5 you can have a great lunch.

Youth Auction & Children’s Art

At the concert last Sunday, in addition to the great music, our children had crafts for sale and our youth were auctioning off their hard work. If you missed it, you still have a chance– look this Sunday for a fresh chance to support our youth and kids!

Candidates for Ministry

We are so blessed at FUMC to have several of our members feeling called by God to serve as pastors! On April 30 we had a special called Church Conference. In it, we voted as a church to support Brenda Hogan in her journey, and we voted to continue our support for Jeff Graber as well.

There was also a special announcement that morning… Jeff Graber has been appointed to serve as Pastor of Marquette United Methodist Church starting July 1. Congratulations, Jeff! We’ll miss him here, of course, but don’t worry… we’ll give him a good sendoff in June!



Other Blessings

  • Dorothy Fulks will be celebrating her 90th birthday on Saturday, May 6th, from 1pm – 4pm.
  • Pantry Needs: Spaghetti sauce, canned chicken, canned tuna, canned ham, assorted juices, crackers, peanut butter & jelly.
  • Have you linked your Dillons Plus card with the church? If you do, a portion of all your normal purchases will go to support our ministries! You can set it up by clicking here or contact the office if you’d like help.
