First Friday Film Night:
March 2, 2018, 6:30-9:30pm, Room 205/206
Continuing our “Embracing the Other” theme we will shift focus to a far more intense movie for March 2: Clint Eastwood’s Gran Torino (2008, rated R).
The plot: Korean war veteran and retired autoworker Walt Kowalski doesn’t like how his life or his neighborhood has turned out. He especially does not like the people next door, Hmong immigrants from Southeast Asia. But events force Walt…
Young Adult Gathering
Every other Tuesday night, 7:30pm beginning March 6, 2018 at Panera Bread (1780 E. Jefferson Street in Rockville)
It’s time to get together as a community, away from the hecticness of life. Young adults in their 20s to 40s will be meeting every other Tuesday night to focus on what it is to be a Christian in the 21st century. Meetings are free-form in nature, based on questions brought by group members, Bible verses, and all around life together. Join anytime! For more information, contact Office Manager Theresa Eggleston at email@example.com .
The Empty Nest and Emptying the Next: Creating Healthy Emotional Relationships Between Home and Adult Children
March 20, 2018, 6:30-9:00pm, Fellowship Hall
Our popular pastoral care informational dinner series, “Life Transitions: Navigating the Narrow Passages,” will feature guest-speaker Rev. Janice Daffern. Many people assume that the “empty nest syndrome” affects only parents emotionally and refers to the time when young adult children leave the home and “fly away” to college or work, leaving the parents to ponder “what comes next?” in their lives. However, there are other sides to the issue…
March 31, 2018, 9:00-10:30am
Join us for some family fun and fellowship as we celebrate Easter. Invite your grandparents, grandchildren, friends, and neighbors. We’ll eat a yummy breakfast, dye eggs, and hunt for eggs filled with goodies. Bring a dozen hard-boiled eggs to dye and a basket for the hunt. In case of inclement weather, the hunt will be indoors.
April 15-21, 2018
Faith is providing breakfast, lunch and dinner for 35 women at the Interfaith Works women’s shelter on Taft Court from April 15 through 21. We need volunteers for the following: serve as on-site coordinator during dinner from 6:00-8:00pm one or more nights; assist with transporting food from Faith to the shelter as needed; and provide dinners, and provide lunches. If you are a Scout leader or member of another club, consider making this a service project - participation isn’t limited to members of our congregation.
To volunteer and for more information, please contact Carol Henley (firstname.lastname@example.org ). Donations are also helpful for purchasing breakfasts and beverages - write Shelter Meals on the memo line of your check made out to FUMC. Thanks for your assistance with this very appreciated ministry.
April 28-29, 2018
Rebuilding Together’s National Rebuilding “Day” is the weekend of April 28-29. Faith is partnering with B’nai Israel Congregation on a site this year. Our usual point person, Gary Clark, will be out of town April 28. Therefore, we need someone to assist with online registration of Faith’s volunteers, distribution of T-shirts, and to be on site as Faith’s volunteer coordinator. No construction skills needed. This is a great opportunity for someone who is interested in being more involved in Faith’s missions efforts, but doesn't have time for lots of meetings.
We also need volunteers to work at the site on Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon. Please mark your calendar and let us know now when you plan to come - it will help project leaders plan appropriate work for our skills. Teens age 14 and older may participate and earn SSL hours. You will get free coffee and donuts, lunch, a T-shirt and the satisfaction of helping a local family.
