To Know More about the process of discerning the church's future in relation to remaining in the United Methodist Church or disaffiliating and joining the Global Methodist Church or another Methodist denomination, see this month's newsletter.

Parts for the sanctuary air conditioner have been ordered and we hope to be back in the sanctuary by September for 10:50am  Traditional service. In the interim, we will be meeting in the chapel.  The 8:50am First Light service will continue to meet in the Hannah Building. 

Wednesday Night Live ended for the summer and will resume again in August when school starts. 

FUMC is in need of a used truck to haul trash from Hill St. to the dumpster located on Jackson St. The church currently owns a 1991 Chevy Silverado that has been in use for over 15 years but has almost outlived its usefulness.  Please contact Anita Tennyson, Trustee Chair or Bro. David, if you have a truck that you would like to donate.  The church will provide a donation receipt indicating fair market value.
