The families of Moore, Oklahoma, need our help. Entire neighborhoods have been leveled and the true extent of the destruction is still unknown. Although we are miles away, WE CAN HELP, RIGHT NOW, by donating to UMCOR US Disaster Response, Advance #901670.
To make an online gift, go to www.UMCOR.org and click on "Give Now to Tornado Response." Or call 1-800-252-6174 . If you prefer to pay by check, make the check payable to FUMC and write Advance #901670 on the memo line. 100% of the money we donate will go to disaster relief.

The Town of Bethlehem’s Memorial Day Parade is an event the entire community looks forward to every year, and to show our community spirit and spread the news about our great church, FUMC will once again participate. This Sunday, May 26 following the Morning Worship we will decorate our float. Bring your painting clothes and come ready to decorate away! The parade is held rain or shine this Monday, May 27 and the route is about 1.5 - 2 miles long. We will gather at 10:30 am on May 27 on Ridge Road for the parade itself.
The Farmers' Market (with Guertze barbecue) is back for the season - every Tuesday afternoon in the parking lot!
Pray and play June 9 at our "Praise & Picnic in the Park." This special event is being coordinated by Rob Stubbs and planned in conjunction with our sister church - Delmar Reformed. Worship will be followed by a picnic lunch of hot dogs, hamburgers, salads and all the fixings! And if that isn't enough for you, we'll have games, music, and fun for the whole family after the picnic. A freewill offering will be accepted (suggested $2 per attendee). And lawn chairs are encouraged.
