 A Time of Gathering and Praise




  Wait for the Lord. Wait with faith and hope.

We come as a people of faith, yearning to touch the hem of hope.

Wait for Christ’s healing and strength.

We come as a people strengthened by God, yearning to touch

Waiting and hoping, we come to worship.

We come to be healed.

A meal will be served for all children, their family and all volunteers, starting at 5:30pm each night. Committees will once again be in charge of different duties. Please check with your committee to see which duty has been assigned to them. Each night the program will run from 6:00-8:00pm. Please invite your family friends and neighbors to bring their children. The more kids we have the more fun it will be. I will once again be looking for volunteers to help with the preparing and setting up the props. I will have a board with needed food and supplies down in Wesley Hall and will be looking for volunteers to provide those items. Feel free to sign your name by each item you are willing to donate. We will be needing lots of mountain climbing gear and some tents and ropes and such for decorations. If you are bringing these props, please clearly mark them with your name.  Please contact me if you have any questions at all. Thank you in advance for all that you do to help this become a success. God Bless.


- On behalf of the Finance Committee, thank you to everyone who purchases Hy-Vee cash cards through First United Methodist Church. The Committee recently approved a request to remodel the Jr. High Youth Room at an estimated cost of $5,538 using some of the proceeds from past Hy-Vee

card sales. Last year alone, FUMC raised $6,206 through this very simple and valuable ministry that everyone can participate in. Hy-Vee cards are available for sale each Wednesday & Sunday before and between worship services. A special thanks to all past and present church members and office staff involved in this ministry.


- Candle Makers Daughter play is set for Sunday night August 9th. Musical helpers are still needed. Please contact Katheryn Hickey’s at 605-655-4892.


- Camp even though the Early Bird deadline is past you can still register for camp. The cost would be at full price.  The church and UWM will still cover ½ of the early bird cost for one camp per youth (K-12th grade) you are responsible for the balance. If you have any questions please talk to Diane Kisch.


- VBS-Everest Mark your calendars VBS will be held August 2nd through the 6th. Watch the bulletin for more details.
