Please join us for worship and Sunday school, each Sunday at 8:30 and 11:00am. at FUMC downtown (308 N. Braddock St.).

Children's Church at 8:30 and 11:00am
Worship is central to the life of our church. Next week Rev. White returns. He will be preaching a sermon titled “The Mentally Deficient, Financially Gifted, Barn Owner”. In preparation read Luke 12:18-20.
We need Lectors
Do you attend our 11:00am service and wonder what you can do to get more involved with worship? If so we have the answer for you! We are in need of Lectors for our 11:00am service. As a lector you would be in charge of coming to the pulpit to read the scripture on your scheduled Sunday. Worried that you might not be able to pronounce some of the names/city listed in the Bible? Fear not for help is never too far away. You will receive your scripture passage on the Thursday prior to your service. This gives you time to read over it and list any questions you have prior to arriving to church on Sunday morning. Rev. White is more than willing to help with any pronunciation concerns you have. This is a great way to get more involved and help your church. If you are interested in signing up, please contact the church office at 540-662-3151.
The church will be having it’s next blood drive on August 10 beginning at 1:30pm. Tim Anderson will begin filling spots for this drive when he returns to town. So in the mean time, mark your calendar and spread the word. For those of you that donated blood during the June 11 Relay for Life event, you are fine to donate again. Thank you in advance for your donation.
Family Movie Night
We are having another family movie night this August 12th. We will be showing "Risen". In 33 AD, a Roman Tribune in Judea is tasked to find the missing body of an executed Jew rumored to have risen from the dead. We will supply hot dogs, buns, condiments, and water. All you have to do is bring a side dish or dessert to share. This is going to be in the Fellowship Hall at 7:00pm. See you there!
