Relay for Life – August 23rd
Firecrackers of Faith will walk again, this time at Pinewood to walk around the lake, and sell great food (our famous banana pudding and macaroni & cheese bites). You will even have the opportunity to take home one of several beautiful, handmade quilts. There will also be food trucks and live music. Come help us beat our 2018 record of $4,112!
Mid-West Food Bank August 24th, 9:00am – 11:00am
We had a great time helping out at the food bank last year, sorting hundreds of airline blankets for distribution to those in need. We go back one year later, and are eager to find out what we will be doing to help this time. Sign-up sheet and release forms are in the sanctuary. Maximum of 20.
Something’s Happening Here: A Season of Renewal for the Church (September 8th – 29th)
Stewardship is a pretty boring (and often uncomfortable topic) without knowing why we should commit our time, talents, gifts, service and witness. Besides, shouldn’t renewal be a “spring thing?”
Much happens before seeds go into the ground, and one is preparing the soil. For example, after the harvest of wheat or barley, sheep and goats are let into the fields to graze on the stubble and waste of the harvest; fertilizing as they go. Sometimes the soil is turned and a cover crop planted to protect over the winter and to be plowed under in the early spring.
For the church renewal is a process; not a single event. It is a journey of many steps rather than a sprint. A leap of faith is often required, and this leap includes spiritual preparation, as well as planning and follow-through.
Beginning with a Love Feast on the 8th, we will discern together how to be “the body of Christ” here at NFUMC, and what our gifts and graces we each bring to the table for mission and ministry in this place and at this time. On the 29th we will enjoy a fellowship meal: covered dish and all.
Aramis Alvarez Memorial 5K – Saturday, November 9th
More than one race, walkers and kids are included also with a fun ride. (The races will be chip timed.) But, that’s not all. We will be selling our famous chicken BBQ, and this year will hold a Mid-Morning Market (an upscale yard sale). More details to follow.
