380 Kids Registration
Believe it or not, it's already time to register to join us for 380 kids Sunday School and/or Wednesday nights. Just hop on the website at www.shueyvillechurch.org, click on the Ministry tab and then the Children's tab. The orange link will take you through the registration process. It only takes 2-3 minutes. If you are interested in teaching Sunday School or a Wednesday night class, please contact Heather Nekola, Children's Ministry Director. She is currently in need of Sunday School teachers to rotate teaching as numbers increase.
Willis Dady Sunday Lunch Program
Do you enjoy cooking? Socializing with
community members? Serving your delicious creations with others? If yes, this volunteer project would be a perfect fit for you! The clients at Willis Dady spend time during the week attending different meal sites in the
community. Every Sunday the staff like to give the clients the opportunity to eat in the comfort of the shelter. We will be preparing a meal for Sunday, August 12th. If you are interested in helping, please contact Brian Nekola.

1st Place Waves for Jesus

Workout Group
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witness, let us throw everything that hinders and the
sin that so easily entangles. And let us
run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
                                       Hebrews 12:1

Friends, we have a race to run each day for the Lord
and we are to be as ready as we can be. That means we need to be spiritually healthy and as physically healthy and energetic as possible. Then we can be ready to serve our Lord. Please consider checking out the new workout group at SUMC. There will be no judgment and plenty of
encouragement. We will work hard, work smart, have fun, and end our time with the most important thing; tending to our spiritual health. Talk to Pastor Brody or Maddie if you have questions. Sundays, 3:00 p.m., Family Life Center.
Prairie High School Grab & Go Pantry
The Prairie High School Grab and Go Pantry is always in need of snacks for their students. As a way to help, SUMC is asking for your help by donations of granola bars, fruit snacks, cereal bars, nut packs, cheese crackers, etc. There is a blue tote in the lobby near the UMW corner for your donation items to be collected. Collections will be taken September through May. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
New Shueyville Church Sign
It's become even harder to drive by Shueyville United Methodist Church and not notice we are there; the sign is working! Please be patient as we work through the learning curve that comes with new opportunities. Experts aren't made in a day! You might be wondering how we decide what goes on the sign. Here is our protocol for the time being. Anyone can submit information for the sign to Julie in the church office, and those submissions will be reviewed by the staff on Tuesdays at 1 p.m. Please honor this weekly deadline. Final decisions will rest with Pastor Brody. Please remember, we don't want too many things scrolling because repetition is key. Also, there is a difference between announcements to church members and the exciting things we want to share with people passing by. The sign is our way to let new people know of ways they can get involved at SUMC, not ways to remind members of things only they would understand. Thank you for being excited about the sign, and if it helps someone find their place in SUMC, then it will have served an amazing purpose.
Lord's Acre Sale - September 29th
"Rise Up!"
Just as we are RISNG UP as a newly invigorated church, we are GEARING UP for the 71st Lord's Acre Sale here at Shueyville United Methodist Church. The day will begin with doors opening at 9:00 a.m. A "General Store" will be located in the lobby. This area will sell baked and
canned goods, arts and craft items and produce. There will be three silent auctions at 9:00, 10:00, and 11:00 a.m. in the narthex. Silent Auction items might include theme baskets, gift certificates, donated items from businesses and hand crafted items. A frozen foods area will sell frozen corn, meals, and desserts. A country lunch will offer home-made good-ness, and the day will end with a live auction from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Kid's activities will be provided, so bring the family. If possible, let Sandy Less know by August 1st about any Live Auction items you will be donating. We all can be part of this day by donating an item or an hour of your time. It doesn't matter what we do, the most important thing is being a part of it! Stay tuned for more information and ways to help.

Coordinating Our Building Use
Are you needing a place at the church for a committee meeting or event? Please note that ALL scheduling of the building's use must be cleared and scheduled through Julie in the church office. This is not a "permission" issue, but we do need this central location for keeping track of the building's activities (we are thankful to be able to host a growing number of Boy and Girl Scouts this year!). Just drop an email or phone the office (848-7213), so there are no surprises. Thank you!
