Doubt and Doing
Mark 6:1-13
This sermon looks at the little difference Jesus can make in his hometown, up against the commissioning of the disciples to go cast out demons. What miracles are at our fingertips that we do not even try to make happen because of our assumptions about it being impossible?

Have you ever wondered what secret or not-so-secret talents are hidden in our fantastic staff here at FUMC Downtown Bentonville? Now is your chance to find out! Our staff invites you to a Staff Talent Showcase on Sunday, February 4 in Hines Hall. We will also have a Chili Supper provided by the talented cooks in our Chancel Choir. The Showcase and Chili Supper are free and open to all. A free-will offering will be taken to support the FUMC Scholarship Fund. The Chili Supper will begin at 5:30p with the Talent Showcase beginning at 6:00p. Can Pastor Michelle really juggle? Come and find out what wonderful hidden talents your staff possess, have some great chili, and support the Scholarship Fund!

Planning a Legacy Luncheon - Postponed
Due to low response, we have postponed this event until later in the Spring. Watch for updated information.

Mental Health First Aid Training
Saturday, February 17th, 8am-5pm

Sign up to attend this 8 hour training on how to respond to someone who is in a mental health crisis. You will learn useful skills and information that take some of the fear and anxiety out of responding. You may also aid in keeping a situation from escalating. Lunch will be provided. Registration deadline is Sunday, February 4. There is no charge for this training, as it is being sponsored by The Mixers Sunday school class, but the number of people allowed is limited, so please sign up here to hold your space.
