Fall Sermon Series: The Book of Ruth!

We're now halfway through our sermon series on the Book of Ruth, and so far we've discovered how difficult it was to be a woman in the Ancient Near East (especially if you're poor, foreign, or a widow), what "ish gibbor chayil" means in Hebrew, and how God's providence can work to change lives and restore faith. There's still lots more to learn from this beautiful story, though, so do join us for the rest of our series!

Oct 26: Ruth 3:1-18 A strange love story (Greg Thiessen)
Nov 2: Ruth 4:1-10 Justice and Grace (Lydia Cruttwell)
Nov 9: Peace Sunday (Aften Thiessen)
Nov 16: Ruth 4:11-12 Building up the House of Israel (Lydia Cruttwell)

Neighbourhood Outreach Event -- October 31st

As an extension of our drop-in centre outreach program, FUMC will once again be offering coffee for parents, as well as water, hot chocolate, and other goodies for trick-or-treaters in our neighbourhood on Hallowe'en. We'll be set up on the front lawn of our Education Building (660 East 51st Ave.) from 6:30 to 8:30pm on October 31st and would love to have you join us in showing God's love to our neighbours! Costumes optional, and any donations of baked goods or carved pumpkins would also be appreciated, even if you can't volunteer at the event itself.
