Many people remember the beloved Fred Rogers, host of the popular children’s television show, “Mister Rogers Neighborhood,” but did you also know that he was an ordained Presbyterian minister? Join us beginning Sunday, August 7th for a three-week sermon series on spiritual wisdom from Fred Rogers, as we take a deeper look at America’s favorite neighbor.
Are you a student preparing for a new school year or semester? Are you a teacher, gearing up for the fall? Bring your backpack, purse, work bag, or satchel to worship on Sunday, August 7th to receive a blessing as you prepare for the year ahead!
First Sunday UCO FOOD DRIVE
When you do your shopping this week, remember those in our community who are in need. Because of your support of this outreach ministry, in the month of June, 240 people received food assistance. The plastic bags we donate are used to package the food that clients receive. Clients receive donations on Tuesdays and Thursdays (mostly by appointment).
The most needed items are Jiffy Cornbread mix, Jellies/Jams in non-breakable containers, small bags of Sugar, Flour or Rice, and canned meat meals such as Spaghetti and meatballs. These items are not normally received from Food Net or Second Harvest. You are welcome to make a financial donation by making your check payable to FUMC and designating it for UCO in the memo line.
Thank you for your continued support.
