A message from Brother Jaimie Alexander
Dear FUMCBV Family!!!
I am tardy in saying thank you to each of you for your support of our guests last week from Uganda. We were honored to host Duncan Ojambi and Lazarus Wogoli of Kibo Group International from Jinja, Uganda last week on Monday. Thank you so much for your donations to missions to support the work of Kibo in improving the lives of persons in Uganda and for the thoughtful welcome you gave these two wonderful men.
This Sunday, the May Mission of the Month emphasis “Mountain Of Food” begins. Mountain of Food order forms are available in the bulletins on Sundays in May. Donated food is given to various Benton County food Pantries. In May of 2015, the total given to build the mountain of canned goods and staples was over $7,000, which was a record amount. Let’s build an even larger mountain of food this May!
Thank you for your faithful and prayerful giving to the mission and ministry of FUMCBV. This is the time of year that giving sags. I hope that we can turn that trend around in May. Please join me in being faithful in giving and in tithing in praise and thanksgiving to the ministry of church as we strive to help people to love, learn, and lead!
Church Work Day Postponed Until Saturday May 14th!!!
Because of the weather forecast for Saturday, the all church work day has been postponed until Saturday, May 14th from 9am until ?. Bring your work tools and cleaning supplies and join others in the FUMCBV family in working around the church. There are usually some very delicious snacks being served to help motivate each of us, so bring food to share if possible!!

All you can eat pancakes will be served. All proceeds support the missions and ministry of the UMM. Tickets are being sold in the office or at the door the day of the event.
We welcomed Shirley Newton into full membership last Sunday at “The Well” Service. We are so thankful Shirley has made FUMCBV her church family and church home!
This Sunday we will baptize Viviane Lynn Sackman on her first birthday during the Well Service. We will welcome into full membership Jo Bain and Nancy Schriner at the first Service. Help welcome each of these persons to FUMCBV Sunday!!!
God is faithful!
Don’t just come to church, Be the CHURCH!!!!
