FAITH UMC - EVENTS & OPPORTUNITIES:
Special Lifetree Cafe Worship Service on July 15th:
Please join us in the fellowship hall at 10:30 AM this Sunday for a special worship service where you will get a taste of Lifetree Café and how you can relate to friends and neighbors. Invite a friend who may be exploring their faith! The topic is “Money, Money, Money: Stories from a Lottery Winner.”
Old Fashioned Corn Roast and Backyard Cookout on July 21:
We will have a delicious corn roast cookout on the church lawn (inside if it rains) on Saturday, July 21 from 4:00pm to 7pm. This will be a great opportunity for fun and fellowship while also raising financial support for our ministries. The Old Fashioned Backyard Cookout, will feature roasted corn in the husk, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, macaroni salad, potato chips, watermelon and assorted drinks along with games for adults and kids. Live music will be provided by Chip & Annie Mergott from 5:00 to 6:30 pm. We need help with the event and donations to help offset the expenses so that more
proceeds are generated toward ministry from the sale of the meals. There are sign-up sheets in the hallway. We are hoping for a big turnout—and encourage you to invite friends. Bring blankets and lawn chairs to make it a real picnic. See Brandon Dubbs, Tim Patschke, or Jake Ruhl for more information.
Operation Overboard Vacation Bible School - Monday, July 30-Friday, August 3 from 6-8pm:
Faith UMC will once again host Vacation Bible School. All children ages 4 to 11 years old are invited to join us for the week. Everyone is also invited back to our 10:30 am worship service on Sunday, August 5th when the children will share what they have learned. Please stay for a family picnic after the service.
Our theme this year is Operation Overboard: Dare to Go Deep With God. Your children will become divers-in-training at Operation Overboard as we plunge into God's Word and discover stories of deep faith. After a high-energy opening at Ocho's Cove, the divers make their way to the Underwater Passage. Interactive Bible lessons reveal five ocean insights for living as a follower of God, and your divers will discover Sea Scripture memory verses that will boost their faith long after VBS. The children will expand on what they've discovered by participating in a variety of activities: making their own art projects at Aquatic Arts, singing new music at the Choral Reef, exploring science activities at Exploration Station, participating in recreational activities at High Tide Hangout, and enjoying tasty snacks at the Diver's Diner.
You can register to help with Vacation Bible School or register your children to attend via our Online Registration Form at: http://2018.cokesburyvbs.com/faithumclititz or by downloading a printable copy: Child Registration Form or Volunteer Registration Form. You can also download our flyer so you can share the information with a friend (print two sided for best results).
There will be a Safe Sanctuary Training for all volunteers who work with our youth or children so that they understand their responsibilities in providing diligent care for all of our young people. This training is required annually, and will take place on Monday, June 25 at 6:30pm. Volunteers also need to have up-to-date clearances (renewed every 5 years). Please contact the church office for more information.
Lunch/Dinner at Isaac's in Lititz on August 12
Faith UMC will be having a fundraiser to purchase a scooter to support the ministries of Pastor Asif in Pakistan. All you have to do is plan to eat at Isaac's between 11-8pm that day (in store or take out is fine), and show them the flyer that says you from Faith UMC (digital and paper copies will be available). A percentage of whatever you spend is donated back to the church for this cause--and that includes your meal or even buying gift cards that day.
