The music worship today was moving!!! It really brought the spirit and excitement of the season to me!!!! Thanks to all who make it happen.
Figured I would reach out here to see if anyone looks at this page. I wanted to know if there was someone in the church community that has owned / done / does autobody work and would be willing to teach me some of the basics. Im sure we could work out a quid-pro-quo but wanted to check with my church family first. I have a project car that I want to use to learn some of the basics. Let me know!
No 5pm worship today but you can still make it to our 11:00 service! Hope to see you soon.
We are live streaming now!
We are live streaming right now!
Carrig, 5, is so into his prayer calendar! He insists we all hold hands and pray before he will place the daily sticker. We love Floris!
Janice Joel, who is a regular at FUMC, is in need of prayers! She is at Fairfax Hospital fighting for her life. Please continue to pray, and any help would be a blessing!
