Wednesday, March 27th Stations of the Cross Online on Facebook and Youtube at 6:30 p.m Will also have an in-person self guided meditation beginning at Noon on the 27th

A Volunteer Opportunity: The Outreach and Hospitality Team is looking for volunteers to make follow-up phone contact with Sunday morning guests and visitors. A script to guide conversation will be provided and the time commitment is just a few hours on Sunday afternoon. If this seems like the perfect fit for you, please let Pastor Matt know you are available. 


Adult Education Opportunity: Be a VIPP (Very Important Point Person).

Building relationships within our congregation and within the larger community of our town reinforces the power and purpose of leading a Christ-centered life. We are currently looking for people to create and arrange a few social and/or educational events in coming months. The March newsletter lists a few suggestions for pleasurable outdoor events, museum excursions, community concerts, and day trips. Leadership for these activities would be a one-time commitment on the part of a single person or couple, no year-long commitment to a study group or chairmanship. Sign up at the Welcome Center if you’d like to be one of our VIPPs for one activity.





History Night, April 17, 6:30pm: If you can help with providing desserts for this special event, please sign up at the Welcome Center. Featured Speakers: are John Berry, Joe Gschwendtner, and Rev. Matt Franks. Come learn more about our Methodist roots and the people who settled in our county and town in the late Nineteenth Century, and invite your neighbors to join us.


Wanna Be An Usher?

We had a great training last night. We have a few Sundays that need to be filled. If you are interested in becoming an Usher please let Pastor Matt know.

 

Chancel Choir and Bell Choir welcome anyone new and interested in adding to the music ministry of our church. Lenten and Easter music selections promise inspiring additions to our worship. We have 32 robes and 3 octaves of bells just waiting for your place in worship. Bells meet at 4 pm and Choir meets at 5:30 every Wednesday. If you have questions, please contact our director Nancy Docksey (nansydocksey@gmail.com; 303-877-9085).

 

Prison Backpack Ministry dates have shifted to April 14-May 5. Watch for more information in the March newsletter.


Hospitality and Outreach Team would like assistance with contacting visitors by phone on Sunday afternoon. If this is something you’d like to do in welcoming new people to our church, please let Pastor Matt know. This team appreciates everyone’s efforts in welcoming visitors, greeting them and introducing them to others, inviting them to lunch, and sharing our church’s social media posts to your own page. Since many of our visitors are not in person but following us on line, sharing these posts increases our visibility.

 

Church Photos: If you have any photos to share about church events —  small group dinners or lunches, mission activities, musicians, worship services, etc., please send them digitally to Rev. Matt. (matt.franks@fumccr.org)

 

Community Kids: If you can help with providing and serving food to the children who come to our after-school SOCK program on Tuesday afternoons, please sign up at there welcome center.

 

Online Vespers: Attend our Virtual Spiritual Gathering every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. via our Facebook and YouTube Channels! Pastor Matt will deliver an online experience that you won't want to miss. Make sure to join the party on time!

 

Communion During Lent: Starting Feb. 18th we will offer Holy Communion in the Library in between services except for 1st Sunday when we will have full communion in worship.
