The sale will take place Saturday, June 25, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Booth space is going fast! Cost is just $20 for a 10’ x 10’ indoor space with an 8’ table or $20 for a 14’ x 14’ space with no table plus 10% of your sales. We will advertise in the local newspaper and have a banner hanging in front of the church on sale day.

The Kingdom Connection Fine Arts Camp is July 11-22, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. There will be a presentation of the musical on Sunday, July 24th. This camp is a chance for children 1st grade and up to discover talents they never knew they had through the direction of our Music Director, Linda Pollock. They will also learn about God’s Word as they sing, dance, and act their way through the production. There are also plenty of opportunities for parents to help with building sets and helping their children learn lines. Learn more about The Kingdom Connection by clicking here.
You may register your children at the Welcome Desk or online by clicking here.
Wal-Mart has requested that we pick-up their food donations at 9:00 a.m. instead of 8:30 a.m. So starting immediately, drivers will need to be at Wal-Mart at 9:00 a.m. and volunteer pantry workers will need to report to the church at 9:15 a.m. for unpacking the truck.
Wal-Mart has indicated that management needs to complete paperwork before we can pick up the goods, and that this later pick-up time will help avoid delays for our drivers.
We hope that this time adjustment will not be a problem for any of our volunteers, and we appreciate your being flexible during this time.
Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 12 from noon to 2:30. That is our church picnic and pond dedication.
Exciting activities are in the works, but we will need your help. The church will be frying up fish. If you are a fisherman and have some ready-to-cook fish filets (fresh or frozen), please contact Tim at 918-289-2431. He tell you how to drop off the fish. The church will provide grilled hotdogs and bottled water. Please bring your favorite dessert or side dish to share.
We will have a large tent for shaded seating and food service. If you have a canopy or large umbrella with stand, you are encouraged to bring it. Don’t forget your lawn chairs and sunscreen, too.
A lifeguard will be on duty at the pond, so you can bring a canoe or small kayak. Bring your fishing pole for catch-and-release fishing! A prize will go to the person who catches the biggest fish! There will be music, a slip-n-slide, bubbles for children, and miscellaneous yard games to play! We will have something for everyone. If you are interested in helping, please contact Laurie Ault at 918-341-4580, ext. 310.
We look forward to this year’s picnic at the “new” pond. This will be a great opportunity to invite a friend to show them just how much fun we have at FUMC!
We are very grateful to the Vance family for which our new sports fields and pond area are named. A big “thank you” goes out to Kelly and Sherry Vance for making the extensive pond renovations possible as well as providing for much of the sports field development. The pond renovation includes stairs and a handrail going down into the water for baptisms. Pulling out the underbrush, enlarging the pond, and planting new trees has beautifully modified this area of the FUMC property. It will continue to be a lovely backdrop for weddings and Easter sunrise services while also providing a place for groups to gather for marshmallow roasting and fishing or a youth group outdoor movie night. A quarter-mile walking trail around the pond is also planned.
On June 5th there will be an American Red Cross Blood Drive from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. There is a sign-up sheet in Disciple Hall. Sign-ups are appreciated, but walk-ins are welcome.
