6-22-20 FUMC Update

When I go into the lobby on Sunday mornings to prepare for worship and unlock the front door, I can’t tell you how good I feel when I see our ushers working together to greet people, “smile with their eyes,” and make people feel welcome! Especially during this COVID time, worship cannot happen without our ushers who give out face coverings to people who don’t have them, disinfect everyone’s hands, and seat people with safe distancing. I want to thank Amy Moss, Brad Scharf, Sue Gross, Shiela Haynes, and Ken Atkins for doing such an important job and doing it WELL this month! Now, we need your help to continue to make worship safe and sacred. Won’t you please be part of making worship work? 
Our current plan for 2020 is to have one team of 4-5 people a month rotate, one month on and one month off. You only need to be here by 10:15 a.m., and you’ll be finished before noon! If you can’t make a Sunday, we’ll work on having people available to substitute for you. Please contact Penny Boice if we can count on you. THANKS SO VERY MUCH!
COVID-19 TESTING in MINEOLA, JUNE 24 ~ Attached please find the details on COVID-19 Mobile Testing at the Minneola Civic Center. This is one of the last testings (for the virus testing, not the antibody testing) scheduled for our county. Please post, share, and announce the event to your friends. If you have any questions, please contact the Wood County Courthouse.
LET’S SHOW OUR LOVE TO THE PARK FAMILY ~ With Katie’s disease progressing and Judy back to dialysis three times a week, would you like to help bring a meal or a dessert on Wednesdays? Rather than overwhelm them, they have asked JUST for Wednesdays right now and they have no allergies (and Katie is on a special diet so will not be eating). You can drop off your food on their covered porch by the door on the day you choose. CLICK HERE to choose a day – it’s easy! 
SANCTUARY OPEN FOR PRAYER TUESDAY MORNINGS ~ Drop-in Tuesday mornings, 9 am – NOON at your convenience. Prayer guides are optional but they are by the choir room entrance and the front lobby. (Please take them with you, and as always, wear a mask in and out and please disinfect your hands.)
SUMMER MOVIE SERIES CONTINUES ~ This Sunday we’ll talk about the true story of the undersized Depression-era racehorse whose victories lifted not only the spirits of the team behind it but also those of their nation, SEABISCUIT (free on Amazon Prime and $2.99 elsewhere). I want to apologize to those of you watching online who saw the WIFI service dropped out on Sunday. While this was out of our control, we DO think there may be some things we can do to help have a different back-up plan.  While we instantly tried to set up a balcony cell phone, you could tell we had a problem. With technology, things are ever changing! In the meantime, I hoped you enjoyed the history behind the Ark of the Covenant and  Raiders of the Lost Ark yesterday. As always you can listen on the website.
FIND INFO ON THE WEBSITE ~ All our upcoming events are on the website calendar HERE (with the ZOOM sign-in info) or you can always find details on the HAPPENING NOW page. Also, you can also download and/or just listen to sermons on the website also, HERE.
Blessings to all!
