Happy Tuesday, Church!

July 4th Fireworks Viewing Event at FUMC:
Remember to come to our July 4 Fireworks viewing event at our Church. We still are one of the best places to spend the fourth of July in Blairsville. The fun will begin at 6:30 pm! Our contemporary band (led by our new Contemporary worship leader - Eric Miller) will be providing music this year. Jeremy Bruce will be overseeing the BBQ again! The BBQ baskets are $5 each and drinks are $1 each. The snow cone truck will be here too and perhaps a few other surprises! Come make an evening of it. Our church will be open and Hospitality folks will be here to help guide people around (and point out the restrooms!) Come be an ambassador for your church to the community that night. The view is amazing! Fireworks begin at 9:30 pm as usual.
Pat Maryscuk will be stepping down from her volunteer service overseeing our church nursery in July. SPR is creating a paid position called “Nursery Director” for this role. If you wish to apply for this part-time role, please send your resume to the church office.
