STARS Training - This Sunday!
FUMC is partnering with the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for another year of STARS (Summer Teaching to Advance Reading Success). This program helps provide our
community's youngest scholars with the head start needed to succeed in school. Volunteer opportunities range from one to four hours for anywhere from 1-6 weeks during the summer. STARS is a great opportunity to continue our congregation's work around racial equity and education.
Join us at FUMC on Sunday, June 3, after the
second service for a training.
Contact Kathy Carpenter for more information.
Food Pantry Needs You!
The food pantry ran out of bags this week and needs your help! If you have any to spare, please bring bags to church on Sunday, or drop in the Welcome Center throughout the week. Paper bags are preferred. This is an on-going need and any help is much appreciated.
Changes to Coffee Hour
We're making some changes to coffee hour on Sunday morning. In an effort to be more environmentally and economically responsible, we'll be phasing out our paper coffee cups and lids and replacing them with reusable mugs. You're always welcome to bring your own mug with a lid if you'd like your coffee to travel with you around the building! We're excited for this opportunity to live into our mission for sustainability and appreciate your cooperation.
Also, beginning this weekend and continuing through Labor Day, we'll be serving coffee on Sunday mornings from 8:15-11:15 in the Fellowship Hall, with treats served at 10 a.m.
We all love Sunday's Coffee Fellowship Hour, but did you know that we rely on member donations to help support this valuable time? We now have two easy ways for you to sponsor the Sunday of your choice - add your name to the list in the Narthex or
sign up online.
You can also reach out to the Welcome Center by
or phone at 608-256-9061.
Deborah Circle will meet at Sa Bai Thong at University Station on Tuesday, June 12, at 6 p.m. Josie Gobel will share her experiences at the worldwide UMW Assembly which met in Cleveland this May.
