Welcome to the website of Fountain Park United Methodist Church
Mission of the Month – December
Our Military: There are three ways opportunities to support our military. 1) We are collecting gently used DVD’s of good taste to be sent to one of Wisconsin’s Veterans Homes; 2) Donate packets of powdered drink mixes to add some flavor to plain drinking water and is one of the top 10 items requested by soldiers. This is part of the Hug Project, www.thehugsproject.com. 3) Write letters or send small packages to an anonymous soldier in a platoon recently sent to Cuba. This is meant to encourage a soldier, not as a pen-pal exchange. All the items listed above can be placed on the Mission Table in the Church Narthex.
Christmas Eve Service: Wednesday, December 24th at 5:00pm.
Merry Christmas: “For unto you is born this day in the City of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11.
New Year’s Eve Party: Wednesday, December 31st @ 6:00pm in Fellowship Hall. Join us for food and games. See the sign-up sheet in the Gathering Area for details.
Things to Know
Christmas Ornaments: The Chancel Choir is selling Christmas ornaments to raise money for the organ repair fund. There are several beautiful pewter ornaments to choose from at $6.00 each of which $3.00 will go towards the organ fund. Ornaments may be purchased before or after the worship services from any choir member or Director of Music, Jim Wilsing.
Chancel Choir CD: Available now, the Chancel Choir is selling a CD of their songs for your listening pleasure. The suggested donation is $10.00 each. So pick up a copy or two today.
Operation Christmas Child: Gift filled shoeboxes are a great way to introduce children to God’s greatest gift, salvation through Jesus Christ. This year FPUMC members outdid last years total number of shoeboxes with 61. The boxes are on their way to thankful children in impoverished countries. Thank you for your love & generosity.
Soda Pop Sunday: By simply donating the price of a can of soda will help save the life of a rescued infant at CSI Ministries-Kenya!! These infants are often found abandoned along the road or in the trash. So we are joining forces with other churches to support Dave & Jennifer Bell’s rescue mission in Kenya. The last Sunday of every month will be designated as “Soda Pop Sunday”. Funds collected will help buy needed items such as medicine, diapers, and infant food. What a wonderful way to care for “the least of these” until they are adopted by a Christian family. For more info about CSI Ministries, see the Mission Page.
Operation Shopping Cart: So what’s up with the shopping cart in the Gathering Area? The Missions Committee has streamlined donation requests for canned & boxed food items and paper products. This will be a year round endeavor. All collected items will go to, 1) food pantries at Campus Life, Safe Harbor, Salvation Army, and Sheboygan County Food Pantry on a rotation basis, 2) out youth group can use any needed items for any of their missions, 3) and for other committees that reach out to our neighborhood. A printed list of acceptable items is on the shopping cart. No glass products.
FPUMC News: Make sure you check out the FPUMC News page and the Photo Gallery page for news & photos about the latest events involving the church and its members.
Hospitality Table: Join your fellow church friends and visitors for coffee, juice & snacks for a little social time every Sunday before and after the worship service in the Narthex. All are welcome!!
