Heifer International is again the mission project for this very special day, so be saving
your change to drop in the buckets the children will pass during the special offering.
Our goal is to purchase an ark of
animals again this year,
that means we need $5,000.00.
Oh yes! We like green money and checks, too!
This is the eleventh year for the United
Methodist Women to sponsor this special day.
Save the date on all your calendars!

Annual MidWinter Retreat
This past weekend, 25 youth ventured back down to Burnet, TX
for their annual MidWinter Retreat. The theme this year was,
“What Will Your Adventure Look Like?”
From Friday to Sunday the youth cooked, cleaned,
fellowshipped and worshipped together.
Cassie Wohlfarth rejoined the group as the guest speaker
and talked about God’s calling and plan in each of our lives.
Our students spent the weekend looking into God’s plan for their lives, and how they think that has been (and will continue to be) seen so far. As always, we are so thankful for the many volunteers and supporters who made this trip a possibility for our students!
Welcome our newest members,
Ronnie and Susan Strain. Susan is already become a
valued member of Sharing Hearts.
SNEAK PEEK The Homebuilders SS Class got a Sneak Peek at Project 3.7. Buddy Sheppard, co-chair, Michael Hudson, Allen Schneider and others in our class have spent many hours in the heat, rain and cold doing many jobs on this clinic. The inside has been painted and it is absolutely amazing.

First Methodist School
Remembers Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Our most recent chapel was led by Mrs. Deanna’s
Tuesday/Thursday four year old class.
Like Dr. King, they taught us that we are all special in God’s eyes. They told the story of “The Crayon Box That Could Talk” and created a beautiful piece of art to illustrate the story.
We have a few spots available for new friends who would like to learn and grow with us, so spread the word! Please check out our website and our Facebook page for more information about our school!
