Ladies of Fayette First Methodist, it is time again for each and everyone to prayerfully consider your pledge to UMW. If you are a member of this church, you are a member of UMW. This money goes to help with the Baptist/Methodist Women’s annual Christmas dinner, helps support missions and helps us with the moving expenses when we have a change in our Sr. Pastor. We have been asked and challenged to increase our pledge this year, if at all possible. Please make your checks out to FFUMW and give to Joan Weaver, Sandy Nolen or Bonnie Thomason. You can also mail it to the office. Thank you in advance for allowing us to continue to serve our church and community as Methodist Women.
In-As-Much donations may be made at the altar railing during communion. In-As-Much continues to provide emergency assistance to community members in need within program guidelines. We thank you for your mindful prayer support for our neighbors in need!
