AGAPE Christmas Box

 Share Christ’s love with an AGAPE Christmas Box!  Project AGAPE is a joint ministry venture of the Western and NC Conferences of the United Methodist Church.  Our own pastor has led five mission teams to this region and serves as the chairperson of the Project AGAPE board.  These are some of our most desperate Christian brothers and sisters.   Imagine being a child in this region of Armenia where widespread poverty has been wrought with many forms of devastation, such as earthquake, war, and a failed economy.  Your gift may be the only gift this child has ever received.

We will take up boxes in the month of July and complete our summer Christmas collection in mid-August.  Forms are located in front of the church office and in the back of the sanctuary.

 

Prayer Walk

We are starting the Prayer Walkers at FGUMC. We will meet on Tuesday evenings at 7:00, have a short devotion, discuss prayer concerns, and then walk the grounds of the church in prayer for those concerns and in prayer for our church. We plan to meet rain or shine – if it rains, we will meet in the FLC.

EVERYONE is welcome! Regardless of how fast or how far you want to walk, we have someone who will partner and walk with you. Can’t or don’t want to walk? Come anyway!  Join us for the devotion and uplifting of prayer concerns. So bring a water bottle, and meet us on Tuesday at 7:00!

ICE CREAM SOCIAL

Ice Cream Social at 6:00 pm at the picnic shelter. This time together is for the whole church, so please come as we fellowship, play games such as corn hole, and enjoy the varieties of ice cream and toppings.  In the event of rain, it will be held in the Family Life Center.
