THE 4-H FAIR IS COMING!
Every year, our youth and the adults of our church work a food booth at the 4-H Fair. The proceeds go to benefit our youth and the church's general fund.
This year the 4-H Fair is August 12, 13, and 14.
Yes, it's time to make the sausage, pepper, and onion sandwiches again. The absolutely BEST sandwich around!
Want to help? If you like to cook and be with a great crowd of folks, you can help out in our kitchen. If you like the bustle and excitement of the fair, join us at the First UMC booth dishing up those yummy sausage, pepper, and onion sandwiches.

Disciple Fast Track Comes to FUMC
BIBLE STUDY FOR BUSY LIVES
Since 1987, Disciple Bible Study has reached nearly 3 million people worldwide, introducing the grand sweep of Scripture in a 34-week format and changing lives and congregations. But we live in a hectic world - which is why Disciple Fast Track has been designed. It maintains the integrity and principles of the original study, allowing participants to receive a thorough introduction to the Bible, but in almost a third less time. Fast Track is not a replacement for the original. Rather, it is a practical option.
Disciple Fast Track uses the same Disciple Study Manual, but the class time has been shortened from 2.5 hours to 75 minutes, the course length from 34 weeks to 24 weeks, and the readings have been reduced while retaining the sweep of the Biblical story found in the original Disciple.
Our church will be participating in the beta 2 version of the new program's final test. It has been developed by Bishop Richadr Wilke (author of the Disciple Bible Study Manuals) and Susan Fuquay, Christian Educator, with the permission and endorsement of the United Methodist Publishing House, the publisher of Disciple Bible Study.
Interested in learning more? Please go to the Disciple Fast Track website to explore all the materials and read what other pastors, educators, leaders and participants are staying.
