Outreach Volunteer Opportunity!
We are seeking volunteers to help run the children's carnival games at the Crabtown Seafood Festival next Saturday, August 17, from 2pm to 7pm. This is a good opportunity for our church to be out in the community as part of a major downtown celebration. Please contact Rev. Kerry Greenhill ( or 303-641-2442) by Monday, August 12 to learn more or sign up.
FUMC is collecting school supplies for Bassette Elementary School again this year. A donation box is in the Narthex for the supplies. We will bless all donations in worship on Sunday, August 25, as part of our Blessing of the Backpacks. If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Eason at
Keep the “Red Room” in mind if you are decluttering!  
 Proceeds from sales support our United Methodist Women’s Missions. We need and appreciate your donations of gently used treasures that can find a new home. You bring it in and we can sell it! We will take just about anything except electronics and furniture. 

Contact Brad Allsbrook, (757) 722-1816, with questions.
Nursery Volunteers needed!  To provide a safe environment for the littlest ones in our church family, we are required to have two unrelated adults in the nursery each Sunday. If you can volunteer to work with our paid childcare worker either during the Sunday School hour or during worship (or both!) on an occasional basis, please contact Meg Moore at 202-549-7548 or . If we get a large enough pool of volunteers the commitment should only be a few times a year. Men and women are welcome, as are youth 16 or older. We would also like someone to act as nursery volunteer coordinator, so please consider if this is the job for you!
