There are many small groups for fellowship and study.  Click here to go to the small group page and find one that interests you.  




Hoagies are back! The UMW have Heritage hoagie tickets for sale on the first Sunday of each month at church or by contacting Joan Aveni, Mary Oksten, or  Donna Mickle. The $6.50 ticket includes a Heritage hoagie and beverage. 

A new group for Seniors is forming. If you are interested, please see Brian Mickle.


Save these items! The United Methodist Women collect these items on an ongoing basis: Box Tops for Education, and aluminum pop tops. The box tops benefit Ranch Hope. Bring your contributions to the Narthex. 



Two ways you can support the church with your church offering. 1) Standard- your gift of check or cash in the collection plate, 2) Direct Deposit – Have your contribution taken directly from your account and transferred to the church account. 


TD Bank’s Affinity Program is coming to FUMC. The Finance Committee has joined the plan where the bank will contribute $ once a year to our church based on the number of accounts and the amount of money in the various accounts. Members enroll in the program at TD to have their accounts qualify for this charitable gift.  There is no cost to the account holder and participation is confidential. (Only the bank knows your personal details.)  More information coming soon.
