BACKPACK MINISTRY
Our September backpack recipient is a woman, around age 30, size small. Look for the pink backpack in the narthex. Thank you!

FUMC OUTREACH
Thank you for your support of this summer’s outreach projects. The pill bottle campaign ends this Sunday, Sept. 17. We will continue collecting RETURNABLE water and soda bottles (NO teas please; soda, both cans & bottles marked NY, are really needed) for deposit, which can be placed in the marked boxes in the Narthex. Returnables may also be taken to:  FM Returnables, 202 West Seneca St, Manlius.  Please ask that the deposits be credited to the account of Fayetteville United Methodist Church.

FLOOD BUCKETS
Outreach, UM Women and our Sunday Education groups are cooperating to fill 20 Flood Buckets by the end of Sept.  However, we need your financial help to reach this goal.  Please consider a gift in the special envelopes – and mark them for Flood Buckets.  We will purchase the supplies and pack them on Oct. 1st. On Sunday, September 24th we will collect a special offering during both services to help with hurricane relief.

THE PUMPKINS ARE COMING!
Your help is needed to make our 6th Annual Pumpkin Sale a success:
Saturday, September 16:  Volunteers are needed to come to the Haines residence (8087 Kirkville Road, Kirkville) at 9 a.m. to help pick, load up the trailers and then set up at FUMC for the Pumpkin Sale.

Sign-up sheets in the Narthex: The sale will take place on 4 consecutive weekends starting Friday, September 22nd, Saturday, September 23rd, and Sunday, September 24th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  This year we are adding Columbus Day, Monday, October 9th. 2-hour shifts are being set up on these dates mentioned, and we hope you will help out. Look for “official” shift sign-up sheets in the narthex on Sunday, Sept. 17.

FAYETTEVILLE FESTIVAL Sat., Sept. 16
Fayetteville UMC will again have a booth at the Fayetteville Festival. It is a good time to let people know about our church, take some time to chat and hand out flyers about our pumpkin sale and, especially, about our worship services, Christian Education programs and service/mission work. We will also be selling pumpkins and are looking for volunteers — or just stop by and spend some time with us at the booth. Rev. Bruce Barden will be there with his balloon animals and we’ll need help with face painting, as we meet and greet young families. Stop by the Food Trucks for lunch, stay for the fireworks, get to know our Fayetteville community. For more information, please contact the church office.
