Flu Season Precautions
During this very critical flu season, it would be a good idea to bump fists instead of shaking hands. We all understand the importance of prevention.

LENTEN BOOK GROUP
Heifer International Offering
Pick up a canister this Sunday in the lobby, fill it with change, and bring it to church with you on Sunday, February 25, 2018.
The children of FUMC will be collecting money that day in pails and wagons for the annual Children’s Sabbath offering for Heifer International. This money will be sent directly to Heifer International to help families in developing areas become self-sufficient. Our goal this year is $5,000 which will purchase an “ark”; two water buffalos, two cows, two sheep and two goats, along with bees, chicks, rabbits and more.
Kids for Christ
Children in kindergarten-6th grade meet us Sunday at 4:00 at the Wesley Building for games, a devotional and more discussion about serving others. We will wrap up our time together with fun games in the gym. Parents may pick children up at 5:30 in the gym. Friends are welcome!
