Growing in grace.... Serving with love.

When I was a little girl I thought that church was only “open” on Sundays, understandably because my Sunday school class was on Sunday morning. My horizons expanded when I attended children’s choir on Saturday mornings but thought that church was opened just for us.   As a young teen I realized that church was also open on Wednesday evenings when I attended confirmation class.
 
It was not until I was an adult that I realized that church is “open” all the time and FUMC particularly has a very busy schedule throughout the week. Just check out the calendar to see all the activities that take place at our church. We are filled to the brim all during the week.
 
Is everyone who uses our space a church member? Or even a regular attendee? No, but everyone is touched by the love of Jesus. We have so many opportunities to serve our community and requests keep coming in. As community members become familiar with our campus, and with us, they experience God’s love. As we have had those wonderful experiences, we naturally want others to experience the same. And people return to learn more, to have their spiritual thirst quenched.
 
We are running out of space to serve these ever increasing needs. The capital campaign will allow us to continue to plan to build a Fellowship Hall that will not only help all of our church ministries but will help us reach out to the community.
 
You may be asked in the next few months to serve on a short task that will help us realize this dream.   Please prayerfully consider helping with some part of the capital campaign. If you would like to know about the committees, they are listed on our website under “New Building Project” on the left hand side and I am always available to answer questions. You will also see more of Susan Peters, our consultant, who is also available for questions and information.
 
An important date to add to your calendar is Saturday evening, April 13 for an all-church celebration. There will be dinner, entertainment, and information. Not only is childcare available but also children’s activities. All are invited.
 
Jeanne P., Chair of Capital Campaign
