A note from Mandy…
Dear FUMC Family,
Could your family, or a family you know, use a weekly “family date night,” a time to come together to build communication, connection, and relationship? We’d love to have you join us at Strengthening Families. SFP is encouraging, warm, and extends your support network. We would love to have you join us!
Hosting SFP at FUMC is such a gift! Families feel at “home” here. They feel encouraged & cared for by our church family. The families have expressed repeatedly the comfort & love they feel extended from our FUMC family. It is especially neat to hear this from families who have previously had negative experiences with faith/church. Thank you for opening our church homes to others and providing a place for families to grow in love & connection to their families and community! Many families send their children to FUMC events & VBS as a result!
Would you like to participate in SFP? Opportunities are as follows:
- Join SFP with your family, or share the opportunity with a family you know.
- Pray for the families and facilitators of SFP.
- Provide a meal (any Thursday, 9/7/23-12/21/23, at 6 p.m. – drinks & paper products provided) – contact Mandy to sign up (firstname.lastname@example.org, 574-527-8776)
- Volunteer in the nursery (6:30-8:00 p.m., any Thursday) – contact email@example.com, 574-527-8776 to sign up!
Thank you so much for your support!
