A message from Brother Jaimie Alexander
Dear FUMCBV Family,
Trunk and Treat is almost here! We are preparing for our young guests in costume and their parents who will be visiting our church next Monday. We need your help to ensure they receive a warm, friendly FUMCBV welcome! Whether you have signed up or want to just show up and help, your presence is appreciated. Here is where we still need you:
5000 pieces of candy to meet our goal.
Volunteers to help with set-up at 3:00pm
Volunteers to help with tear-down
Marshmallows, Graham crackers and Chocolate bars for s’mores
If you will require electricity for your trunk, please let Angie Rader know immediately.
Thank you for your support of this amazing opportunity to share Christ’s love with our community.
Midweek Manna will welcome a guest presenter this week who will speak on the topic of “Identity Theft: What You Need to Know.” This is the first of a series of four presentations by Matthew Taylor and his father, Shawn D. Taylor of Thrivent Financial on various financial and retirement topics of interest to all of us. The Taylor’s presentations will be held in the chapel. Additionally, Shirley Wenger is bringing back her embroidery note card small group in Becker Hall just in time for Christmas cards!
Our meal this week for Midweek Manna will be Spaghetti with Stan and Phyllis’ delicious garlic bread and salad as well as Donna Gaudet’s scrumptious desserts. Come hungry! Please let us know if you will join us for the meal by signing up with Sign-Up Genius through the link below.
Wednesday Night will also be the night for families, children and youth to gather together for Promise Night. With the adults upstairs in Becker Hall and the children and youth downstairs in their respective classrooms, we will explore ways to support the church through our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service and our witness. God faithfully equips each of us to be the hands and feet of Christ to our community and the world. Together we will prayerfully consider how God is calling each of us to serve as Christ’s faithful disciples. Please join us for a time of reflection, renewal and Communion.
I look forward to seeing you Saturday and/or Sunday as we Celebrate the 40 years of Faith of FUMCBV!!!
God is Faithful!
Don’t just come the church, Be the Church!!
