Church News and Notes:
In-person Worship
Don't forget to contact the office each week if you are planning on coming to in-person worship.  Due to COVID restrictions, we have to limit the number of people in attendance.

Call the church (319-334-3689) or send an email (fumcKari@gmail.com) if you would like to be on the list for Sunday's in-person worship service.  

(The service will continue to be available via Facebook, the radio broadcast and our website as usual, so if you aren’t quite comfortable coming back to in-person worship, you will still have options.)

 

Pledge Cards  You will receive a pledge card in the mail, please fill it out and mail it back to the church using the stamped envelope that will arrive with the letter and pledge card. Please return your pledge card by March 5th.


"What Love Means"  
During the month of February, we would like to do something different for the slide show during the offering.  What we would like is for you (both kids and adults) to answer the question "what love means." Then email your answer and a photo of the person answering the question to either Sarah Rothman or to the office and I will forward it to her.

100th Birthday! Eileen Williamson will be celebrating her 100th birthday on February 24th. 
 Cards can be sent to:
 Eileen Williamson
121 Cortez Road #11
Hot Springs Village, AR 71909
