- United Methodist Women The United Methodist Women will meet at 1:30pm Monday, January 13th. The meeting will include the pledge service. All women of the church are encouraged to be part of our mission-oriented group.

 

- Walk and Talk Bible Study with devotional is specifically designed to be used while you walk with a friend, a member of your congregation, or by yourself. The primary objective of the Walk and Talk

Bible Study is to help communities incorporate healthy habits into their lives of faith through physical movement and spiritual enrichment.  Each month there is a different theme which provides 4 devotionals on that theme for a total of 48 devotionals. There is a scripture passage, a short reflections and a series of questions and a closing prayer.  If you are interested in purchasing a book for $6.00 please contact Susan Thorson, Parish Nurse at the church office 665-2991.  Talk to your friends and think about doing this Bible Study to replenish your bodies with good exercise and spiritual enrichment.

 

- International Food Fest The Missions Committee will be hosting their 3rd Annual International Food Fest on January 19th from 5-7 pm in Wesley Hall. We will have sign-up sheets in Wesley Hall for you to write down your name, what you will be bringing, and what Country the food is from.  The Food Fest has been a time of great fellowship and a time for us to hear from different members of our Church family on the various mission opportunities they have had this past year. We hope to see you all there! If you have any questions, please get a hold of Nick & Tracy Kisch or any of the Missions Committee members and we would be glad to help in any way we can.

 

- Financial Peace Class Once again, we will be hosting the Financial Peace Class.  We will offer two classes.  The first class will start at 4:00pm on January 26th and the second class choice will start on Tuesday, January 28th at 6:30pm.  This is an excellent opportunity to start the year out right and get started on some financial strategies that can help you become debt free. Please feel free to contact Denise Willman or Laurie Bailey for more information.  This class costs $99 and is offered free for any former FPU graduates that would like to take it for a refresher course.  You may contact Denise at 606-665-2869 for more information.

 

- Tree of Life Ministry The Rosebud Reservation is the second poorest county in the entire USA.  Over 1,000 people depend on “Tree of Life” for free hot meals each week.  With cutbacks in food stamps, the ministry is more needed than ever.  Without an increase in financial support the ministry may have to curtail their food pantry and hot meal program during the winter months.  With that being said, the Missions Committee has committed to continue the Miles of Pennies into the New Year.

 

- Faith and Home First United Methodist Church will be providing a study group for parents once a month.  We will plan to meet for 45 minutes the first Sunday of the month in the east end of Wesley Hall during the Sunday School hour at 9:45am, starting today.

- United Methodist Women The United Methodist Women will meet at 1:30pm Monday, January 13th. The meeting will include the pledge service. All women of the church are encouraged to be part of our mission-oriented group.

 

- Walk and Talk Bible Study with devotional is specifically designed to be used while you walk with a friend, a member of your congregation, or by yourself. The primary objective of the Walk and Talk

Bible Study is to help communities incorporate healthy habits into their lives of faith through physical movement and spiritual enrichment.  Each month there is a different theme which provides 4 devotionals on that theme for a total of 48 devotionals. There is a scripture passage, a short reflections and a series of questions and a closing prayer.  If you are interested in purchasing a book for $6.00 please contact Susan Thorson, Parish Nurse at the church office 665-2991.  Talk to your friends and think about doing this Bible Study to replenish your bodies with good exercise and spiritual enrichment.

 

- International Food Fest The Missions Committee will be hosting their 3rd Annual International Food Fest on January 19th from 5-7 pm in Wesley Hall. We will have sign-up sheets in Wesley Hall for you to write down your name, what you will be bringing, and what Country the food is from.  The Food Fest has been a time of great fellowship and a time for us to hear from different members of our Church family on the various mission opportunities they have had this past year. We hope to see you all there! If you have any questions, please get a hold of Nick & Tracy Kisch or any of the Missions Committee members and we would be glad to help in any way we can.

 

- Financial Peace Class Once again, we will be hosting the Financial Peace Class.  We will offer two classes.  The first class will start at 4:00pm on January 26th and the second class choice will start on Tuesday, January 28th at 6:30pm.  This is an excellent opportunity to start the year out right and get started on some financial strategies that can help you become debt free. Please feel free to contact Denise Willman or Laurie Bailey for more information.  This class costs $99 and is offered free for any former FPU graduates that would like to take it for a refresher course.  You may contact Denise at 606-665-2869 for more information.

 

- Tree of Life Ministry The Rosebud Reservation is the second poorest county in the entire USA.  Over 1,000 people depend on “Tree of Life” for free hot meals each week.  With cutbacks in food stamps, the ministry is more needed than ever.  Without an increase in financial support the ministry may have to curtail their food pantry and hot meal program during the winter months.  With that being said, the Missions Committee has committed to continue the Miles of Pennies into the New Year.

 

- Faith and Home First United Methodist Church will be providing a study group for parents once a month.  We will plan to meet for 45 minutes the first Sunday of the month in the east end of Wesley Hall during the Sunday School hour at 9:45am, starting today.
