I love the way you are jumping in with two feet.


Next stop the Forums to get into discussions. I see you have volunteered for the Creative/Design/Content team.  I have posted the rest of your team members in a discussion in that Forum Category.  Time to get everyone on board. Do you know everyone on your team?  Do we need a discussion item for people to introduce themselves to other people on the team?

Thanks for using the Event functions for these moments of fellowship.  Just what it is there for.  And I am now coming to a picnic!  Technology and food -- a great mix.

Welcome to the new site Kathy!  Enjoy your first touring experiences.

Quick Tip: Your first step could be to go up to the right hand corner of this screen to your box and go to "Settings".  There are two first things to do there.  #1 - upload a welcoming photo of yourself. #2 - look at the left side of that same page at the "email" settings quick link to see the controls you have on what notices the system will do for you and how you can control them -- I love the new "daily digest" feature myself.

Overcoming Worry

Posted by FUMC on November 16, 2018 at 12:48pm 0 Comments

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had these dolls in my collection. Somewhere along the way I learned that they were from Guatemala and called worry dolls. According to Wikipedia, they were given to “brooding and sorrowful” children who would share their worries with the doll, then hide it under their pillow at night.  By the next morning, all the concerns would have been taken away by the worry doll.    


Matthew 6:15 says, “Do not worry about your life. . .” 

Is it as easy as all that?  Life is learning, over time, to put things in perspective.  It’s having ways to share and then let go of the anxieties that most paralyze us. What are you worried about today?  Who can you share it with?  What new perspective helps you see things differently?

Reconciling Notes

Immigration 101: 

 Sunday, September 23, in the Fellowship Hall immediately after the 11:00AM service. Light lunch to be served.

An Overview of U.S. Immigration Law

Do you ever wonder about immigration laws?

What’s a visa, a green card, DACA?

Why immigrants don’t just apply for citizenship?

Would you like to have a better understanding of immigration rules in a non-political format?


Lunch will be followed by Just Neighbors presenting an easy to understand overview of the ins and outs of our country’s very complex immigration system.


Regardless of your political views, this presentation will focus on facts about who is eligible for the various types of legal status in the U.S. and what the various types mean. There will be time for Q&A. 


No RSVP necessary, just come! For more information contact Mark Elder markuselder@gmail.com.



Co-hosted by FUMC’s Reconciling Ministry Team

and the Church in Society Team.
