What’s Happening at Faith?

Hello Friends, 

It’s hard to believe that fall is on our doorstep and the summer is melting away.  We have lots of activities planned for these cooler shorter days, and we want you to stay connected through our website, announcements and newsletter.  So stay in touch.

Happy Fall!

I love fall! Fall is exciting.
It’s apples and cider.

It’s an airborne spider.
It’s pumpkins in bins.
It’s burrs on dog’s chins.
It’s wind blowing leaves.
It’s chilly red knees.
It’s nuts on the ground.
It’s a crisp dry sound.
It’s green leaves turning
And the smell of them burning.
It’s clouds in the sky.
It’s fall. That’s why…
I love fall.

September 9th is a Big Day at Faith!!!

  • FLOCK BEGINS – Our Children’s and Youth Classes start.  Classes will be held on Sundays during worship on the second and fourth Sundays of the month.
  • POTLUCK LUNCH – We will celebrate the start of FLOCK with a potluck lunch in the Narthex.  Bring your favorite dish to share!
  • PERENNIALS FOR THE PARSONAGE – Do you have perennials that you need to separate for the fall?  Would you consider making a donation to the parsonage?  The parsonage backyard is a little sparse, and we will be collecting plants on September 9 and taking them to the parsonage to plant.
  • BISHOP DEVADHAR WILL BE VISITING THE DISTRICT -He will be at Shelburne United Methodist Church, 30 Church Street in Shelburne.  The Bishop will be presenting from 2:00 to 5:00 PM.  If you have been planting at the parsonage, come as you are, sweaty and dirty.  He will love to see mission in action!

Methodist Mixers – October 13th, 6 PM

The Methodist Mixers will dine at the Silver Palace Restaurant on Williston Road at 6 PM.  The Methodist Mixers are a group of folks from area churches who meet a few times a year for fellowship and food.  Everyone is welcome!  Contact Beth or Rod Williams for information or reservations, 658-6468

JUMP (Joint Urban Ministry Project)

JUMP is one of the important ministries of our church community.   We support them through the donation of toothbrushes and razors.

They are in need of volunteers to help clients complete applications, provide basic supplies, and be willing listeners.  They also are looking for board and committee members.  Contact Bill Eddy for more information.

Clothes Line for Kids

As the cooler weather moves in we are in need of hats, coats, mittens, boots, scarves and anything else to keep children warm in the cold weather.  We are so grateful for your donations!
