United Methodist Women: The United Methodist Women is a women’s group involved in activity and study of Methodist Mission service. The women meet four times a year; February, May, September, and November on the second Sunday of each respective month. All women of the church are welcomed and encouraged to join UMW and participate in their activities.
Bereavement Committee: This group of volunteers provide a light meal for families following a funeral or memorial service. You can assist the committee with the set up and serving of the meal the day of the service; or you may contribute to the meal by providing sandwiches, cookies or cake and delivering them to the church prior to the meal. Volunteers are always needed, welcomed, and very much appreciated by the Committee and the bereaved family.
Office Support (Fold Letters/Correspondence): This is a group of volunteers that help fold and assemble the church newsletter each month, as well as additional church mailings if needed. Contact the church office if you would like to assist with this endeavor on an as needed basis.
Emmaus: The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders. The Walk to Emmaus experience begins with a 72-hour short course in Christianity focusing on the themes of God’s grace, disciplines of Christian discipleship, and what it means to be in the church.
During and after the three days, Emmaus leaders encourage participants to meet regularly in small groups. The members of the small groups challenge and support one another in faithful living. The three-day Emmaus experience and follow-up groups strengthen and renew Christian people as disciples of Jesus Christ and as active members of the body of Christ in mission to the world.
Our Local Emmaus group, Living Colors, meets at the FUMC on the 4th Tuesday of the month from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. We begin with a covered-dish meal and meeting, followed by worship and Holy Communion.
Kairos: The people involved in Kairos prison ministry are called by God to share the love of Christ with those impacted by incarceration. Kairos encourages believers from a variety of Christian traditions to be volunteers in this Christ-filled ministry. The mission of the Kairos Prison Ministry is to bring Christ’s love and forgiveness to all incarcerated individuals, their families and those who work with them, and to assist in the transition of becoming a productive citizen. Kairos offers the opportunity to receive God’s forgiveness through faith in Jesus Christ, and to grow in their faith and servant hood in Christian community. The Kairos Prison Ministry also needs volunteers to assist with baking cookies for the incarcerated men and women.
