On Saturday, September 10, some of our members gathered at the church to participate in the annual making and baking of cinnamon rolls for the Arts & Crafts Fair. Much fun was had as the church was filled with the delicious smell of cinnamon rolls in the air.
Saturday evening prayers will be offered at 6:30 p.m. during the month of September starting with September 3. This brief prayer in the sanctuary will also be available in print and listed below to pray at your home if you are unable to be physically present. Click on the links to open the prayers. These prayers prepare our hearts for Sunday worship with each other and deepen our capacity to “Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.”

Women and kids are invited to a Summer Party, Wednesday evening, June 22 at the Kleibers’ farm starting at 6:30 p.m. Guests are welcome too! We will have a wiener roast and s’mores at their fire pit. Asia Frye will be our speaker! Please sign-up on the bulletin board by Sunday, June 19 or contact the church office if you’re unable to come in to sign-up. Indicate how many women and how many kids will be attending with you. Bringing food is not required, but if anyone wants to bring a side dish, you can indicate that on the sign-up sheet. We’re looking forward to a FUN evening and hope many of you can attend.
Trinity Mennonite has invited us to enjoy a joint outdoor worship and picnic with them on June 5. We will gather at the ballpark complex shelter house just south of the swimming pool for a 10:30 a.m. service. We are delighted to have “Flannelbacks” from Bethel College to lead us in worship.
There are no trees at this location so please bring, canopies, umbrellas, sunscreen, and lawn chairs. For the picnic, bring food to share and table service. Drinks will be provided. Come and enjoy the outdoors and good music as we worship and fellowship together.
There WILL NOT be a separate service at FMC on this day.
We’ve successfully added pictures of comforters the women of FMC completed for the 2016 Comforter Blitz that took place at Journey Mennonite Church in Yoder, Ks.
