03-31-2021 FUMC Words for Wednesday
Good morning everyone,
Our Holy Week schedule is below. Please note we have added a Sunrise Service for this Sunday morning on the hill. We will gather at 7 am. This is a BYOC event, so please bring your own chair. A special thanks to Will Stafford for leading us in music and Pastor Mike for sharing a good word with us! Looks like you might want to bring a jacket (or make that coat), too.
Also, don’t miss the word from our Health and Welfare Team regarding vaccines just below. I received my first dose yesterday and the process could not have been any smoother.
Grace and Peace to all.
Don

Confirmation Class 2021
Plans are being made now for our next Confirmation class. Confirmation is an opportunity for young people to confirm for themselves the faith we as the church have sought to raise them in. This year, the class is open to all youth in 6th grade and above. If your daughter or son has not been confirmed and would like to be part of this class, please contact us in the office at 706-745-2073. I look forward to hearing from you.
Grace and Peace, Don
