Tomorrow morning (Sunday, May 22, 2022), we’ll have our regular in-person and livestreamed services at 8:15 and 10:30. We’ll be recognizing members of the Abilene High School class of 2022 at both services, but they will only be present in person at the 10:30 service. Those being honored are Braden Adams, Samuel Burton, Joy Clemence, Nick Holmes, and Maren Meneley.
Two Sundays ago (April 24, 2022), we presented Bibles to Addison Duey, Brenna Bryant, and Anna Holt. We’re so glad to have these girls as part of this church.
Braden Adams put together this collection of the FUMC Youth Band songs. Next time we’ll try to set up the camera so that everyone is in the frame (sorry Magda). Our thanks to Braden Adams, Magda Meneley, Maren Meneley, Carson Woodworth, Jensen Woodworth, and Joy Clemence (in the booth).

Wendy Robinson has reported that the youth group handed out 417 bags on October 31, 2020 for Drive-Thru Trick Or Treat. Thanks to everyone who donated candy.
The Youth Group will be host a drive-thru Trick or Treat for the community on Saturday, October 31, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Vehicles should enter the parking lot from Seventh Street and will exit onto Spruce Street. Trick or Treaters will not get out of their cars. No walk-through traffic please. Youth and adult volunteers will wear masks.
From Wendy Robinson: Due to the High School still holding classes virtually we will wait one more week for Youth Group and Power and Light to begin to meet in person. We are now planning on meeting Wednesday, October 14, 2020, in person at the church. Power and Light at 3:30 p.m. and Youth Group at 6:00 p.m. Please use the South doors (6th street entrance) and bring your mask. I pray to see you on the 14th!
Due to the suspension of in person school we will not starting Power and Light or Youth Group tomorrow (September 23, 2020).
Power and Light will resume on Wednesday, September 23, (after school until 5 p.m). Wendy will meet the children at the bus stop at 5th and Cedar and walk the children to the church after school. Children will need to wear their mask and practice social distancing. Power and Light follows the school calendar. We will meet if school is in session. We look forward to seeing the children.
