There will be hot dogs, face painting, balloon artist, bounce houses, and Easter Egg hunts!  Free for all!  Come join us!

Shred-It Event

Saturday, April 20, 12:00 – 2:00 PM

It’s time to clear out those unwanted files and piles of paper, old checks, and documents you no longer need!
Paper of all kinds can be recycled and should be brought in bags for easy handling and loading by the Shred-it driver. Cardboard cannot be shredded.
You can bring your paper in re-useable boxes or tubs, and the containers will be returned to you.
Invite your neighbors and friends to join the Shred-it Event and plan to stay for hot dogs and the Easter Egg Hunt too!

Coffee with the Pastor

Sunday, April 28th, 9:45 AM

The Outreach/Hospitality/Missions Ministry Team (OHM) invites all first-time or returning guests to attend coffee with the pastor on the fourth Sunday of the month during the Sunday School hour. A few volunteer covenant keepers (members) of the OHM Ministry team are also in attendance to get to know our guests a little bit better, and to answer any questions our guests may have about the church.

While Pastor Christie (and soon Pastor Mike), would love to have coffee with our faithful covenant keepers as well, physical space in the pastor's office and time limitations dictate that the Fourth Sunday Coffee with the Pastor be devoted solely to getting to know FUMCRO's guests a little bit better. If you would like to become a regular part of the OHM Ministry Team that hosts the 4th Sunday Coffee with the Pastor, please contact Lynne Grandstaff. 

Also, if you are a covenant keeper (member) who wants to have coffee with the pastor, feel free to contact your pastor to set up a time agreeable to all involved! Pastor Christie always enjoys a Venti Soy Latte from Starbucks and she never doesn't.

We hope to see you there!

Your Hospitality Team and Pastor Christie
