The Fast Tract
Elements of a Healthy Life
How often do you get to Lent, the season before Easter, and make something up to give up or take on? That isn't the end of the world, but we can be more intentional. This sermon series aims to give us time to thoughtfully discern how to spend Lent 2020. 
Mature Active Super Seniors
Friday, February 14th, Mature Active SUMC Seniors will celebrate Valentine's Day together with a potluck from 11:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m. in the Family Life Center here at SUMC! Let's warm our hearts, souls and minds while we bask
in Jesus' love together. Main dish and potatoes will be provided. Please bring a side dish or dessert.
VBS 2020-June 22-25, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Rocky Railway
Jesus' Power Pulls Us Through
Believe it or not, it's time to start thinking about VBS. We are in need of lots of volunteers to make this a week  the kids will remember. The first step is to fill the Station Leader Spots. The Bible Story Station is still in need of a leader. This is the station where the kids hear the story for the day and do an activity. The VBS starter kit comes with a manual full of ideas to pick and choose from. Please contact Heather Nekola if you have any questions or are at all interested in looking through the manual and talking about what the station might look like. If a station leader is not for you, we will need lots and lots of shepherds. These are the people that take their group from station to station throughout the evening. The VBS volunteer and child
sign-up will be online soon. You don't have to have a child to volunteer!

Prairie High School

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!
