This Week at FUMC

First Church Family:
     I pray that you are well. Our youth and adults returned from BigStuf in Panama City, Florida on Tuesday evening. I must tell you that it was all that it was said to be: incredible worship and instruction for the students, tremendous instruction for all of us youth leaders, great small group time, and recreation on the beach.
     We have a wonderful group of kids, led by our graduating seniors: Molly Triplett and Cary Carpenter, and they participated fully. Our youth leaders, Sonya Triplett and Meredith Cline, did an amazing job. You will see a slide show of some of our experiences soon.

Please remember that this Sunday we all worship together in the Sanctuary at 10:30AM!

     We will remember and offer thanksgiving for those who established our nation. Our theme over the next weeks will be the heroes who followed God as recorded in the Old Testament. Adult Sunday School will precede the service. Contact your SS leader for the exact time of your class’ meeting.
     No doubt, many of you will be on vacation this weekend, as this is the most traveled non-Thanksgiving/Christmas week of the year. If you are in town and have guests, bring them. When they tell you that they have nothing to wear, tell them that we have no strict dress code, and bring them on.     
     With a number of you, I have been looking forward to worshipping as one congregation in July. 
     Remember that on even numbered Sundays (including July 10 and 24) across the summer, we will offer Godly Play Sunday School for our children at 9:15AM.
     Also remember that, on July 17, we will enjoy a hot dog and hamburger picnic meal following the service.
     Be safe and enjoy the Independence Day holiday.

Blessings and love,    

Pastor Dave
