Summer Prayer Service (August 16th)

On Wednesday August 16th at 7:30pm, Lydia will be leading a Summer Prayer Service in the basement of the church building -- we'll be praying together for our church, our city, and our world.

Joint Service Sunday (August 6th)

We forgot to announce it at our service last Sunday, so here's a quick reminder: DON'T COME TO CHURCH THIS SUNDAY!

(that is, don't come to the FUMC building on Sunday, August 6th -- instead, head over to Sherbrooke Mennonite Church (7155 Sherbrooke St.) at 10am for our joint communion service with FUSMC and SMC. Come join us as we worship with dear brothers and sisters!)

Come on out and join us each Sunday at 10am as we worship God, listen carefully to the words of Jesus Christ, and are empowered by the Spirit!

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

BBQ and Carwash Fundraiser for Kingcrest! (June 17th)

The good people of FUMC's Outreach and Service Committee are coordinating a BBQ to go along with Kingcrest's Carwash fundraiser on Saturday June 17th.

Come on out between 9:30 and 3 to get your car washed, and the BBQ lunch starts on the front lawn of the Education Building at noon. All monies raised will go to support Kingcrest's efforts to help newcomers and immigrants learn English and connect with one another and with the church!
