Weddings are on my mind!  Last weekend Conner and Cheyenne Ragsdale got married at the Ragsdale’s home, and it was a beautiful evening celebrating the love of two people who are starting their new lives together!  Next Wednesday morning at 10 AM, I will be celebrating my youngest daughter Lyssa, her marriage to the man she has been waiting for her whole life.  Matthew is wonderful and everyone in our family already feels like he’s part of our family, and I am so excited for them both!  Lyssa and Matthew are getting married in a small, intimate family wedding in Orlando, but the day before, we’re all going to Disney World to SURPRISE my grandson who will be turning 10 – he has no idea we’re all going to be there!  Next week will be FULL of love and joy and I am overflowing with happiness to all be together.

I’ll be out of town next Monday through Friday but Heather will be here most of Monday-Wednesday, and Pastor Sue Gross will be on call, 903-767-6339.   Email Heather your prayer requests: communications@fumcwinnsboro.com


Wednesday, April 6th, 6 PM … Taco Dinner and Egg Hunt, and if you haven’t RSVP’d this FRIDAY is the deadline so please, just do it now, PLEASE!

Click here to make a reservation now or call 903-342-6172

As of today, we have 23 Beach Club people coming (12 children, not part of our church!) and 27 FUMC people who have RSVP’d so thank you so very much!

Why is this important?  Our kitchen team and bakers work really hard to make everything special and to be sure there is plenty of food – with the cost of food going way up, we want to be good stewards and prepare for everyone so please help us.  but please help us be sure to have enough food and enough eggs for the after-dinner egg hunt. We are, of course, asking our KBC families to RSVP also but I hope we can count on YOU to help.

THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO BROUGHT EGGS!  We still need yours so bring them Sunday!

WON’T YOU PLEASE HELP HEATHER GET THE EGG HUNT READY?  Heather will be here in the office next M-Tu-Wed to help with the egg hunt, and she will be at the FLC at 4:30 to make sure there is plenty of time to get 3 sections of eggs set up for 3 age groups out by the volleyball nets.  She will need some help so please email her if you can be there early: communications@fumcwinnsboro.com
