2017 VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Our theme this year will be Galactic Starveyors
VBS 2017 will be June 12-16 from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon. It will be an adventurous week for your children, including lots of games, crafts, music, Bible learning and fun! Cost is $10.00 per child and covers all activities throughout the week.

We will need lots of volunteers and extra hands to help!  If you are available to help, please contact Pastor Jill (jauman@fumcftl.com) or Pastor Josh (jgentry@fumcftl.com).

​Also, there are items needed to help make this a successful event for the children. Please stop by the Lobby and see what is needed to help our 2017 VBS  be a success.

ON-GOING ​FUMC YOUTH PROJECT - HOMELESS CARE PACKAGES
Our Youth have assumed a project to assemble care packages to help benefit the homeless.  Each package
costs $7 to assemble.  Donations in any dollar amount are gratefully accepted.  Or you may purchase items
on their list  (click the link to the pdf list shown here).  For Easter, they assembled 100 packages ready for
distribution.  They invite you to take one or more packages with you to give to homeless you may see at
various locations throughout the city.

FUMC PRESCHOOL AND AFTER-SCHOOL CARE
Space is currently available for our preschool and after-school programs. Children from 6 weeks to 4 years of age are welcome in the preschool program. For elementary school children, we provide an excellent after-school program, which includes pick-up from local area schools, supervised homework time, play time, and a light snack.
