7.21.2023 FUMC Announcements

This week's announcements for July 21st

July 20, 2023

Sunday, July 23
Rev. Dr. T. Ray Wheeler

Baby boomers are optimistic in the face of difficult times and have a strong belief that “things were going to work out for them"! They also have a rebellious streak and are not afraid of challenging authority.  We see this mirrored in the behavior of Jeremiah when he tells the King what he doesn’t want to hear and winds up in jail. But, ever the optimist, Jeremiah buys a worthless piece of land that is smack in the middle of an area occupied by the opposing army.  What can we learn from Jeremiah and the Boomers? 

Called Charged Conference

As part of the process to approve Pastor Ray’s appointment, our church will join with a few others in the area who changed compensation for their pastor for a special called Charge Conference on Tuesday, July 25, at 5:30 p.m. on Zoom. To represent our church in this matter, mark your calendars for the date and time, and join the zoom meeting via this link:
