The Next Children's "Play"

June 9th

Youth Mission Trip Help

There’s worry whether there will be enough adults going on the summer youth mission trips.  Without the safety-number, the trips can’t happen. Please be in prayer and consider going with the senior high June 23-29 or with the junior high July 8-12.  Contact Travis at travis@fumcgp.org for more information.

Did You Miss the Call?

The youth tried to call all church members last week to raise money for the summer mission trips.  If you did not get to talk to one of our fabulous young people but want to help, just donate indicating “youth mission trips.”  Thank you!

Communication!

People need to know how God is moving in our church. We need help communicating that.

Invite people to get involved with small groups in the church: Tuesday night Life Groups, Sunday School classes, etc.

How to Dress for Church

Friends, it’s that time of year when we guess about the weather. We tried to turn the heat on for the sanctuary building, and the water refused to heat up.

 

So? Dress in layers. Be prepared for shifting temperatures in our buildings in case we guess wrong and/or the machinery doesn’t want to function.
