Marilyn Good Love Offering

After 10 years of faithful ministry on FUMC Staff, Marilyn Good is retiring. Marilyn has coordinated the logistical needs of staff, congregation members, and countless outside groups using FUMC facilities, enabling us to use the facility as a crucial tool for ministry. All are invited to give a love offering by August 18. Note "Marilyn Good Love Offering" in the memo of your check or online giving.

Back-to-School Sunday

Sunday, August 18
During worship, all students, teachers, and administrators will receive a blessing and a gift as a tangible reminder of God’s and our congregation’s love and support. Parents should plan to take children to their new Sunday School classrooms and then join us in Wesley Hall for a parent coffee. Then that evening, join us at the pool party!

August Mission Emphasis
English as a Second Language (ESL) classes are offered at no cost in our Family Life Center weekly on Monday and Thursdays. Guests can practice their English conversation skills and develop friendships to support them outside the classroom. Although the teachers are volunteers, materials, childcare, utilities for the FLC, and refreshments for the social hours all cost money. Contributions at the altar rail offering during the month of August go to support this quiet but powerful ministry.
