Hi, Friends.


We are finding creative ways to be in service during this time of sheltering in place. You can help, too.

* We are keeping our Food Pantry open with curbside service, Tuesdays 8:30am-11:30am.

     * You can drive by during Food Pantry hours with donations or your financial gift to the Church.

     * If you are in need, you can receive food, household products, and hygiene items.

* We are reaching out with phone calls, emails, and texts to check on people's well-being and needs.

     * Who do you need to check on? Ask if they need food or medicine. Say a pray or have a laugh.

* We are mailing cards and letters to break through the feelings of isolation.

     * Who can you send a card, letter, or thank you note?

* We are ramping up our prayer lives.

     * Where is your place of prayer? When are you setting time aside for prayer? Who needs your prayers?

* Some are using their unique talents to make masks, share music videos, and create inspiring videos.

     * Use the unique gifts, skills, and talents, that God has given you to serve another.

* We continue to connect through our online Worship Service, Sunday 10am, www.facebook.com/festusumc.

     * Join us for interactive worship and invite others into the conversation.

     * If you are ready for worship in the sanctuary with restrictions, visit www.festusumc.org/worship.

Peace and healing to you!

We look forward to in person service opportunities returning asasp (as soon as safely possible)!

First United,

Pastor Tish
