Listed below are some ways our church continues to serve as we are called to do. Announcements In-person Worship Protocols: Just a reminder that one of the best ways to show love for one another is to follow the 4W’s: 1. Wear Face Masks; 2. Wash hands; 3. Watch your 6 ft distancing; 4. Wait to visit til you are outside! The Ushers will guide you to the exit for your pew. At this time, we will continue to have song leaders and ask that you not sing during the hymns. As more of us get vaccinated this may be lifted as well. Also, please call or email the church office if you plan to attend on Sunday. This will help us plan for seating. Thank you for helping us all stay as safe as possible. March 14—Wearing of the Green! We will be back in church so wear your green to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (March 17). As in the past, if you forget to wear the green you will need to donate $5 to the Church Building Fund. We hope Mary Ellen will be there to cheer us on!
March Mission Project - It’s a baby shower! Our local mission this month is helping young families with diapers, wipes, burp cloths( if anyone wants to sew some), bottles, and other items that might be helpful. Dan Finland, a friend in Kathy Prater’s neighborhood, is a man with a heart for helping others. He stocks baby supplies in his home and when a family calls for help, he responds with what’s needed. So let’s help him share the love! Bring your baby supplies to church and we will deliver them to Mr. Dan! Blessings!
April Food Ministry Needs: We will be giving a ham for each family on Saturday, April 3. We are planning on feeding about 45 families. If you can donate a ham (Walmart and Aldi’s have good prices) by March 26 that would be helpful in our planning.
Easter Lilies – Get your order in for the Easter Lilies that adorn the alter on Easter Sunday. Orders are needed by March 25. Please call the church office or send a note that you’d like a lily in Honor of or in Memory of a loved one. Include your name and the correct spelling of their names. Each lily is $10. You may take your lily home on Easter Sunday or donate it to the church for the garden areas.
Wednesday Book Study and Gathering— 7 pm each Wednesday during Lent! Some people give up or sacrifice something during Lent. Others look at Lent as a time to add something to their spiritual life. Join in the book study, ‘The Last Seven Words’ by Susan Robb. You will gain a deeper understanding of just how much Jesus loves each of us. Please call the church office or Pastor Tyler if you would like to join this special Lenten study. If you have a special book or want to study more in the Bible let Pastor Tyler know—678-699-9547. A reminder: Pastor Tyler has published a “how to video” for using Zoom. It has become a way of meeting and sharing during this stage in our church life. It is so convenient to use—no drive time, casual dress, free, and sure beats not seeing each other! You may view the video by clicking on this link....www.FBUMC.net
Flowers for the alter—We will begin the new year with a calendar for the flowers on the alter. If you would like to have flowers placed on the alter on a certain date, in memory or in honor of a friend or loed one, please send a note to the church office with the information and a suggested donation of $20. The calendar will be on the table in the foyer if you need to sign up at church.
Prayer Team- the Prayer Partners continue to pray each Tuesday at 10:00 am and as needs arise, emails or phone texts are sent with special requests. Many of you pray with us during the week as schedules permit. Add your name to the list of 'Pray-ers' and a prayer list will be sent to you. Call or email the church office for this list. If you have a prayer need - a request or a thanksgiving - please let us know. You may call Pastor Tyler or call the church office. Prayer is a strong connectional bond with our Savior that we need every hour and every day.
Volunteers needed: There is always room for an extra helping hand. If you would like to volunteer an hour or so to any of the above mission works, please see Pastor Tyler or call the church office.
