Making Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World
#FUMCLOVES

During the 40 days of Lent, Christians are encouraged to add something to their life. We're asking people to find ways they can be intentional with helping someone each day, whether it is an individual or with an organization. A couple of examples are assisting at Boca Helping Hands, reaching out to a neighbor or helping a friend, Please post a picture online of you "showing love" using the hashtag #FUMCLOVES so we can flood the Internet with the love of Christ!
YOU ARE INVITED!

The United Methodist Women will meet online on Saturday, February 20 at 2:00pm for the special program of "Prayer and Self-Denial." The theme this year is: “She Leads: Empowering Women to Make a Difference. To highlight United Methodist Women programs and encourage women to give thoughtfully in order to make a difference in the lives of women , children and youth around the world.” Please join us! Email Debbie Woolsey to confirm. Click here for the link information to the Zoom meeting on February 20.
FUMC BOCA HAS A GIFT FOR YOU

As Pastor Marcus mentioned here a few weeks ago, FUMC Boca is providing access to online resources from Right Now Media—the world’s largest library of video-driven Bible study resources. You will receive free unlimited access to discover fun shows for kids, studies on books of the Bible, training videos on leadership, and much more. Getting started is easy—just CLICK HERE to create your account. We are very excited to offer this to our congregation as one way that we can use to focus on growing daily in Christ's love. Check out this video to see the great ways you can use this resource.
EMAILS CLAIMING TO BE FROM OUR PASTORS ARE GOING OUT AGAIN!

Please do not respond to these. Our pastors will never send you an email asking for gift cards or from a @gmail.com account. All official church emails end in @fumcbocaraton.org. If you are ever not sure about the legitimacy with an email, please call the church office at 561-395-1244.
PRAYER REQUESTS

If you have prayer requests that you want to share only with the pastors, please contact the church office. If you would like your request to go out on the Amazing Grace Prayer Group email (80 people), contact Min Pusey by email or at 610-715-1075. She will then share your request with the group.
Online Worship Service: February 14, 2021
THANK YOU FOR BEING A MINISTRY PARTNER FOR 2021
 
In a normal year we would have a Commitment Sunday where the congregation could bring forward their commitments of prayers, presence, gifts, and service as an act of worship. Since we did not have this opportunity, we would like to thank publicly those who have committed to be ministry partners in 2021 by supporting FUMC with prayers, presence, gifts, and service. Any additional commitments will be acknowledged over the next few weeks in our weekly email. Thank you to George Elmore, Shirley Ritchie, and Steve & Kathy Staggs for your support and partnership in 2021.

SUMMER CAMP - *Meeting Date Change!*

Warren Willis Camp in Leesburg FL has announced that they are moving forward with plans for overnight camp during the summer of 2021. They have assured us they will be following CDC and America Camp Association guidelines regarding COVID-19 in order to provide a safe week for the campers and a safe summer for the staff. At this point, refunds will also be available if they are unable to safely host camp this summer. 

We will be attending the week of July 26-31, 2021. Transportation will be provided. Students entering 4th grade in the fall through high school seniors graduating in 2021 are eligible to attend. 

The cost per camper is $430 for the week and includes lodging, meals and all activities. Camp Scholarships are available and we will be fundraising to further reduce the cost.
