FUMC Words for Wednesday: 04-20-2022

04-20-2022 FUMC Words for Wednesday
What a wonderful time of worship on Easter Sunday! The day began with the youth leading the Sunrise Service in the early morning fog. Their presentation of the life and ministry of Jesus was amazing! Be sure to thank them and Jennifer for their service. The celebration continued inside later that morning. Worship in the Sanctuary and at The Well just added to the day. Thank you, Jeff, Keith, Choir, Eric, and Overflow. All were blessed by your ministry.
And the Good News is….it’s still Easter. He Is Risen!
Supper tonight !
Pizza will be on the menu. Serving starts at 5 pm.
Make plans now to come and enjoy a meal together
Bible Studies will follow at 6 pm.
CHILDREN’S MINISTRY ANNOUNCEMENT
I regret to inform you that Emily Stafford will be stepping away from the position of Children’s Ministry Director at the end of this month. Emily notes that serving in this position has been a blessing to her and that she has enjoyed allowing God to reach the hearts of children through her. At this time, however, she no longer feels called to serve in this role. She will remain active in the Children’s Ministry, just in an unofficial capacity.
Be sure to thank Emily for her service and to continue to hold her and her family in your prayers.
Thank you, Emily!
Pastor Don

Please stop by and say a prayer over these quilts. Tying a knot lets the receiver know that people care and that we have prayed for them.
