A message from our choir director

We are excited to welcome you to service each Sunday morning at 9:30 am. The music ministry has been challenged during the pandemic to find new ways of providing music to enhance your worship experience. We hope that the music we have offered thus far has been a blessing to you. Although congregational singing is not yet allowed, we are happy to announce that this coming Sunday during the service we are including a live vocalist. We want to assure you that every safety precaution is being taken and the distance and the duration of the singing is all within the guidelines that we are following. We are looking forward to safely including more live music that we hope will be spiritually fulfilling. We are looking forward to seeing you in service on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am.

If you are thinking early about Christmas this year, perhaps you might like to include a gift of a can of coffee for the clients at the F-M Community Food Pantry. During the month of November,
we will be collecting cans of coffee here at FUMC. There will be a collection box inside the office entrance. If you would like to make a cash donation to the food pantry, you can drop it off here at the church. If you would like to send a check, please mail it to:
FM Food Pantry
P.O. Box 626
Manlius, NY 13104
We average 150 families, and the coffee is collected through November to begin client’s foods distribution in December. If you have any questions, please contact Lois Vitale.
