MEET THE PROS
Thank you to all who served

WOW! What an awesome night! Six precious people gave their life to Jesus last night at the Meet the Pros event. That is something to celebrate!! Praise God for allowing us to partner with Meet the Pros and host this amazing ministry. Angler testimonies and more from this incredible night are to come next week!

We want to thank Methodist Men, the GFUMC Missions team, area merchants who donated, and all who served with this outstanding community outreach! We cannot do ministry without servants who are committed to helping others become devoted and contagious followers of Jesus Christ. We love our GFUMC family!

Want easier access to the GFUMC Library? Great news, the GFUMC Library will have a kiosk display in the snack/coffee area, and a member of the library team will be present to answer questions about our GFUMC library before and briefly after the 8:45 am Contemporary service this Sunday, May 15th.  Books will be available for check out as well.

NEHEMIAH STUDY
Tuesday Morning Bible Study

"Nehemiah" Tuesday Morning Bible Study with Ann Lee. One of the powerful messages of Nehemiah is how much you can accomplish when you align yourself with the will and plan of God. Nehemiah and his followers do what seems impossible because they are doing what God has called them to do. You don't have to rebuild a wall to do the will of God!   The study meets every Tuesday at 9:30 am in Room 202/Main Building. Can be viewed on our Guntersville First UMC FB Page and at gfumc.net
