We can drink a toast to the to the New Year with our coffee! ~Kathy and Bruce Barden
RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE: As part of her continuing Scout project, Julia Hamilton is helping to organize a Red Cross Blood Drive at FUMC in Homer Hall on Saturday, December 30th from 9 am – 2 pm. Give blood! Help save lives
BACKPACK MINISTRY: January’s recipient is a woman, size small. Look for the backpack in the Narthex.
IS YOUR 2018 PLEDGE IN?: If you haven’t had a chance to make your 2018 pledge to FUMC, we would appreciate receiving them as soon as possible! Pledge cards are available in the back of the sanctuary and in the Narthex. For those of you who requested pledge envelopes, they are ready to be picked up in the Narthex. If you have any questions or would like to order a set of pledge envelopes, please call the church office. Thank you!
LIGHTS OUT, PLEASE!! The trustees request that everyone turn off the lights in the church once meetings are finished. We are having issues with our electric bill being higher than normal and we need to work hard to turn off the lights when meetings are finished. We want to thank everyone for their help in this matter.
TRUSTEES: The next trustee’s meeting will be January 9th at 7 pm in the Library
OUTREACH COMMITTEE: The next Outreach Committee meeting will be held on January 10th at 7 pm in Homer Hall.
MYSTERY LUNCH BUNCH: If weather conditions are acceptable, the “Mystery Lunch Bunch” will go out after the service on January 7. You are welcome to join us as we dine together at an area restaurant — probably one not too far away. Call the church office by Friday, Jan. 6, to make a reservation. (If it’s stormy, we’ll move it to January 14.)
ARTIFICIAL TREES: UMW is planning a project for next year and looking for any artificial Christmas trees that you no longer want. If you are planning on discarding or just want to donate one, please call the church office. Thank you.
