MINISTRIES OF THE CHURCH
Our Chancel Choir is open to all singers ages 12+. We rehearse at least one a week and sing three out of four Sundays in the choir loft. Our purpose is to worship the Lord through music in a variety of different styles. We sing from hymns to southern style spirituals! Please feel free to come in during a rehearsal to watch or even participate for a Sunday. If you have any questions feel free to contact Hailey at email@example.com
Our Junior Choir is for children ages 5-12 We meet after the children’s chat on Sundays in the choir room to sing songs along with learn some great dance moves. This choir sings four times per year during special moments. We learn to worship our Lord through singing and dancing. Come and join us!

The Ladies of Simple Abundance came to be a part of FUMC several years ago when a book called Simple Abundance – A Daybook of Comfort and Joy by Sarah Ban Breathnach came with one of us to be used as a devotional. The author had a way of gently and spiritually reviving the soul and reminding us to find JOY in the simple things that many times get overlooked in our daily hurry-up. Since our official naming of the group, Simple Abundance, we have had the opportunity to enjoy many missions that God has put in our path. Quarterly meetings are time to get together and share our blessings over fellowship and laughter, prayer and praise, bible study and book studies, over prayer shawls and discussing the needs of our congregation. Some of our missions include the Cookie Walk in early December that has proven to be a hit with the congregation as well as the public. Our outreach through baked goods and feeding the soul does not end there. We are actively participating in Tuesday Nite Dinners which is a weekly outreach ministry at FUMC for anyone in need of fellowship and a meal. The newest blessing to have put into our hearts is the monthly Love Over Latte. From September through May on the third Thursday of every month, you will find us learning about how the bible teachings can help Christian women grow in the word and be an active participant in their Spiritual lives. And certainly everyone’s favorite activity is our annual women’s retreat where church friends become family and families are blessed to have their mom, wife, mother, sister, aunt or grandmother refreshed and renewed with an ever growing Circle of Friends that provide unconditional love and support. If you are weathering storms alone, or just need some monthly ‘girlfriend time” please join us and feel the love of God working in all of us as He prepares us to live happily ever after, simply and abundantly.

United Methodist Men
Our mission is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others.
The goal of United Methodist Men is to empower the ministry of Jesus Christ through men within the congregations of the UMC.
Everyone has different gifts, graces and areas of interest. Opportunities for participation include the diverse ministries of the church, such as prayer groups, missions, Bible studies, retreats, workshops/seminars, small groups in the Wesleyan tradition, leading and participating on committees, teaching Sunday school classes, youth ministries, scouting, mentoring and assisting in leading worship service. The focus is not inward, concentrating only on those who attend a set meeting, but outward to all men, assisting them to engage in the process of spiritual growth.
Stephen Ministry is our congregation’s one-to-one, confidential Christian caregiving ministry. Stephen Ministers seek to be a living presence of Christ, to all persons in our community. A Stephen Minister is a trained, lay, caregiver that offers God’s love and plants seeds of HOPE and HEALING in the lives of those experiencing difficulties. Stephen Ministers meet with their care receiver regularly, usually weekly. Stephen ministers, listen, encourage, support, pray and walk beside their care receivers as they deal with various life situations that can be stressful. Through these caring, Christian relationships, God brings forth new life and renewed faith in BOTH the care receiver and the Stephen Minister! If you, or someone you know, is in need of a trustworthy person able to listen, share and care for them, with Christian love, please tell them about Stephen Ministry or let a Stephen Minister, Stephen Leader or the Pastor know.
Let us “…serve one another in love.”
~ Galatians 5:13
