Summer Suppers!

Summer is a quieter time around our church buildings, since people are outside enjoying the sunshine on the beach and in the mountains and in their own backyards and patios. This makes for a perfect opportunity to get to know one another better by hosting a few "Summer Suppers" -- a casual potluck dinner hosted in the house of someone from FUMC, inviting others to join them for food and conversation.

There's already a few signup sheets for dinners up on our foyer door, and more will be coming soon. Do join in and get to know your brothers and sisters of FUMC better! (and, if you'd like to host, please contact Lydia via lydia.fumc@gmail.com)
