Cross with Newsletter II


Homecoming 2016 at Fair Grove United Methodist Church is almost here!  Our Homecoming will be observed on Sunday, September 18th with worship service beginning at 10:45 a.m. and lunch following immediately after the worship service. Both the worship service and lunch will be indoors. (There will be no 9:00 a.m. Early Service on this day.)

 We are pleased to announce Rev. Dr. Jeff Patterson, our District Superintendent, will be here to offer the morning message.

Please remember that we will have a covered dish meal in the Family Life Center immediately following the service. We look forward to seeing you on this special day.  Your presence will add to the joy of our time together.

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 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.
