Make a joyful noise to the Lord, ALL the Earth! God is calling YOU to be in service. Music ministry is an extremely fulfilling means to answer that call. If you are not yet involved in music ministry at FUMC, now is the time to change that. The fall is always a great time to become a part of one of our music groups as everyone is getting started. Here are some of the opportunities: Chancel Choir- Open to all persons of high school age and above. We’ll teach you everything you need to know. The group practices on Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. downstairs in the main building in the choir room. First practice is September 5th . Bell choir- The Hi-Lo Ringers practice on Thursday nights, 6:30-7:15 in the bell choir room, beginning September 12th . The group is open to people of high school age through adult. Some music reading ability is helpful. We have vacancies that we’ll need to fill to start the season. Praise Team/Band- positions open by audition as needed. Just let Clarence know you’re interested.

Don’t see what you’re looking for or do you need more information? Contact Clarence at

Church & Community Picnic, and Volunteer Recognition Aug. 25, 12-2 p.m. @ Crossroads For our church picnic this year, we are doing something extra special – we’re inviting the community to join us! We will have FREE food, fun (bounce house, face painting, balloon art), fellowship, live music, and a chance to win a gift card to a local restaurant or business. As we pray and prepare to launch a new worship community at Crossroads, we want to reach out to and begin building relationships with people in the area—and we need your help! Here are some ways you can help: 1. PRAY about whom God wants you to invite to our Church & Community Picnic. 2. INVITE people to join us. (Invitations available in the parlor) 3. BRING an extra side dish so we’ll have plenty of food. 4. DONATE a gift card to a local business or restaurant (by Aug. 20). 5. VOLUNTEER to be a greeter (inside or outside), direct people, answer questions, etc. Thank you for your prayers and help! If you have any questions, contact Pastor Alice (alicewolfe@love-first.org).
