A message from Brother Jaimie Alexander
Dear FUMCBV Family,
Last week I had a birthday. I want to thank the church family for making it a big deal and a special day for me. Thank you for all the birthday greetings,cards,remembrances,and gifts. I especially want to thank the staff who had a birthday luncheon for me and to Amy Gilmore for my oatmeal chocolate chip, pecan, birthday cake! It made being in the infancy of my fifth decade great!!!
39th UMW Holiday Bazaar
Saturday, October 1 8:30 am to 2:00 pm
Work has been going on for months in preparation for the UMW Holiday Bazaar this Saturday. Volunteers are still needed to help setup on Wednesday morning at 8 am. Donuts and coffee will be served. Volunteers are needed to help return things to normal on Saturday at 2pm. Baked goods may be delivered on Friday between 9am and 4pm. Pies are still needed for lunchroom. If you can help by making and baking pies please bring those to the kitchen on Friday also. It takes the UMW plus others to accomplish all that is needed to be done. Thank you for any help you are able to offer!
This Sunday we will begin a new sermon series “40 years of Faith, A Foundation for the Future” as we think about the history of FUMCBV and prepare for the future of FUMCBV. I am excited about the series and I hope you will be also!
Angie Rader, Sandy Schmidt,Ted Ivy, and myself will be attending the Leadership Conference at the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Kansas City Wednesday though Friday this week. I am excited to attend this conference with a great team of new persons in new roles of ministry at FUMC Bella Vista. I will see you on Saturday at the Bazaar!
God is faithful!
Don’t just come to church, Be the CHURCH!!!!
