Your Place in Ministry – October 1st

Thank you for your support of the TFUMC Children’s Consignment Sale!

Choir Talent Show Fundraiser coming on Wed., Oct. 4th. Some of the ladies are preparing a delicious Lasagna dinner to be served at 5 pm with performances to follow. Please make your reservations no later than Monday at noon. Donations will be accepted for the Music Department only please. If you would like to perform, contact Karen (karen@fumctrussville.com). (For clarification– this is the only meal that will be served here at TFUMC-Holy Cross Episcopal’s menu for that night is not available *see below.)

*As you can see from the October Soul Café menu in our newsletter, we have begun an outreach with Holy Cross Episcopal Church. They have requested to purchase meals from us every Wednesday for their Wednesday night services. This has our Church interacting in a positive light with other area Churches outside of Holy Week. We are very excited about the possibility of interacting with other Churches in this manner and the positive feedback we have received so far has been overwhelming.

You are invited to join us on Sunday, October 8th for the Trussville First United Methodist Men’s Fellowship Breakfast at 7 am in the Fellowship Hall. Breakfast will be prepared by the Fellowship Sunday School Class. Our guest speaker will be veteran broadcaster and speaker, Mike Royer.

Please come help us celebrate Harry Lee as he retires…next Sunday, October 8th from 2-4 pm in the Christian Life Center.

The UMW has an exciting Prayer and Action event coming up soon!  All women of the church are invited!
Baby Shower for Loveladies on Tues., Oct. 10, 6:30-7:30 pm. Help us shower these moms with love and celebrate the babies! Shower and refreshments in the Fellowship Hall, followed by special music and prayer in the sanctuary. Please bring unwrapped diapers for babies less than 20 pounds, if you haven’t signed up for another gift. We ask God’s blessings for these babies and moms!

Bishop’s Day in the Cheaha District…for Laity Leaders & Clergy. October 12, 2017 – two locations: Anniston First UMC, 1-3 pm, and Pell City First UMC 6-8 pm. Bishop Debra Wallace-Padgett will lead a discussion of our Conference vision and mission and the appointment process.

Mark your calendar and make plans to join us for our Annual Veterans Day Celebration Service on Sunday, November 5th at 6 pm in the Christian Life Center…watch the bulletin announcements and newsletter for more details.

Please remember to bring any notices you would like posted regarding Church activities to the Church office. We ask that you not post notices on the Church doors or walls, as this causes maintenance/security issues. Per our Trustees, the Church office will post notices of Church activities on our bulletin boards. If you would like them posted on the electronic boards or would like to place a written notice in the bulletin (deadline is Tuesday at noon) or the Monthly Newsletter (deadline is always second Friday of the Month before,) let us know and we will be happy to help with that as well.
