FUMC/FUSMC Community Meal!

COME ONE, COME ALL!

Our brothers and sisters from First United Spanish Mennonite Church are inviting us to a free community meal on Friday July 25th at 6:30. Come make some connections across language and culture, and have table fellowship with our sister church!

The Fruits of Summer!

It's fruit season here in the Lower Mainland, and we're enjoying the delicious strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and figs of summer! It's also fruit season here at FUMC, as we spend the summer looking at 'the Fruit of the Spirit' in Galatians 5:22-23.

While we've already started this series and dealth with two of the nine fruits (patience and peace), this series is easy to jump in on at any point, so come join us as we explore the virtues that flow from the Holy Spirit!

July 20: Love (Lydia Cruttwell)
July 27: Kindness (Greg Thiessen)
August 3: Goodness (Lydia Cruttwell)
August 10: Self-Control (Lydia Cruttwell)
August 17: Joy (Jenn Baerg)
August 24: Faithfulness (Lydia Cruttwell)
August 31: Gentleness (Greg Thiessen)

Dinners for 8

Have you got a great patio or deck that you'd like to share? Do you have a barbecue that hasn't seen enough use yet this summer? Do you want to get to know your fellow churchgoers better?

If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, then we've got the perfect solution for you: Dinners for 8!** These casual, one-off dinner gatherings are a way for our church community to be blessed by one another in this summer season, and you are welcome either to host a dinner or to sign up to go to one. The signup sheets are on the door of the church at the back of the sanctuary, and if you want to be a host, just contact Greg Thiessen by phone or by email (greg.fumc@gmail.com).

**if you don't have enough room to host 8 people in your home (or even 6 or 7), please don't let that stop you from hosting... just let us know how many you can fit around your table, and we'll make a signup sheet to fit. Or, just invite a few people back to your house for lunch after church on Sunday!
