New Study Program Starting for Spirit Seekers Class

The Spirit Seekers class will be starting a new study program on October 6. We will be using Make a Difference. Following Your Passion and Finding Your Place to Serve by James A. Harnish. As Christians—United Methodists—we are called to “make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” It’s a grand mission—so grand, in fact, that it’s sometimes hard to know what we’re supposed to do. How can we help transform the world? Make a Difference draws upon biblical wisdom to provide practical guidance to help disciples connect their passion with the world’s great need.  We are excited about these real stories of how real people found their place to serve.

Come, join us in fellowship as we seek to follow Jesus. We meet Sundays at 9:30 in Building B. Study material is available.

Relay for Life a Huge Success!

Relay for Life – August 23rd

Firecrackers of Faith walked again this year at the Fayette County Relay for Life on Friday August 23rd at Pinewood Forest. The setting was great with walkers setting out around the lake, watching movies on the big inflatable screen, visiting the food trucks, and selling great food (their famous banana pudding and macaroni & cheese bites).  They sold several beautiful, handmade quilts to raise even more funds for this great cause – breaking their record.  They even took home the trophy for the largest fundraising total by a church! Congratulations!

Midwest Food Bank

A big group of our church members had a great time helping out at the food bank on Saturday August 24th, sorting hundreds of airline blankets for distribution to those in need.

Many thanks to all those who volunteered that day!
