FUMC’s Christian Progressives Book Group gathers once a month to discuss a book by one of the leading Progressive theologians at work today. Christian Progressivism occurs along a spectrum from liberal to moderate, and our book selections touch on all parts of the spectrum in an effort to create engaging conversation and strengthen our faith as individuals. If you’re already a Progressive or simply want to know more about what that means, we are a friendly, informal group and would love to welcome you.

Life happens! Maybe you want to be in a Bible study yet you are juggling work, family, household responsibilities and maybe even caregiving. Time no longer seems to be your own. This very flexible Virtual Bible Study may be for you! Members read a Bible chapter each week. Connie Siskowski highlights some points in the chapter and participants voluntarily comment and share throughout the week as they are able. If you would like try this format, just email Connie and she will be happy to welcome you!
The Outreach Committee coordinates the funds to be given to charities throughout the United States and the World. The congregation has the opportunity to donate funds through the giving envelopes that are available at all the Sunday services. The following is just a partial list of some of the organizations our congregation supports:
The Outreach Committee meets the second Tuesday of the month in the Church Office Conference Room at 7pm.
An Intercessory Prayer Team meets on a regular basis to pray for the prayer requests from FUMC and the community. In addition there is an email group “Amazing Grace Prayer Group” that receives prayer requests through email. YOU can ask for prayers or be on one of the prayer teams by emailing Min.
The United Methodist Women’s Unit (UMW) at our church has three circles and an interest group: Rachel Circle, Rebekah Circle, Susanna Circle, and the Gertrude Sewing Group, that provide opportunities to promote spiritual growth and fellowship and develop awareness and encourage action and advocacy on behalf of women, children and youth, locally and globally. Any female aged 12 and up is welcome to join a circle.
We offer free yoga and exercise classes during the week. Please contact the church office at 561-395-1244 for the latest schedule.
