Thanks to Gerry Davis, we have a four minute video remembrance of our 2017 Lobsterfest complete with aerial video footage. A number of the church members and volunteers are pictured.
Sunday school begins Sunday September 10th at 10am at the North Ferrisburgh United Methodist Church for youth ages 3 y/o through 8th grade. For High School students, we are planning on a twice a month class for you.
We are a Safe Sanctuary church with many good policies in place to keep young people safe so that they can learn about God’s love.
Thanks to Gerry Davis and his drone, we have the following images of the church and the pavilion during Lobsterfest on July 29th, 2017
During Sunday worship the message was the youth and adults talking about a) what they each did; b) where they saw God; and c) what they liked the best. I videotaped MOST of the messages, but unfortunately, my iPhone ran out of memory before everyone spoke. Apologies to Megan McIntyre, Sophie and Nora Hatch, and Joe Kwiatkowski who all gave wonderful messages as well.
Written comments from some of those not on the video:
Nora Hatch: One of the things that was hard for us was our homeowner got sick and had to go to the hospital. We told the whole camp and the whole camp prayed for his healing. We were so grateful to see that he was released from the hospital the next day. We were very fond of him, his wife, and their cute dogs.
Joe Kwiatkowski: “My role at UMARMY was providing the music during worship services. Being able to see all the different groups on the program team, I saw God in the interactions between the different groups and the people they did work for. My favorite moment was meeting a client who had met my godmother because the client’s sister owned a flower shop my godmother would do deliveries for on busy holidays. “

Please note: there is no parking at the church as there is a memorial service that day.
In some countries, children don’t have books or school supplies. Many have no schoolrooms; classes are held in inadequate or half-destroyed buildings, tents, or even the open air. School kits may be these children’s only educational resources.
The craft group has been making the school bags that hold the contents for the school kits. They would appreciate additional help in accomplishing this. The instructions are on the attachment below that you can open with a click. There is donated fabric from Laura Socinski that can be used in the rainbow room next to the Fellowship Hall (with the piano) .
If you have questions, give Jill Wilkens a call at 425 2263.
