Church Family Picnic (June 30, 2019):
Members of Fountain Park UMC enjoyed fellowship, food, refreshments and fun at our annual Church Family Picnic at Vollrath Park in Sheboygan.
Mother Nature threw a little rain in our direction, but it didn’t discourage us.
After the rain passed, we had fun kite flying, Frisbee golf, shooting hoops and other games. Ken Bailey captured the day with his art work!
Youth Dessert Auction – 5/18/19: Fountain Park Church Youth Group hosted their annual Dinner & Dessert Action. Once again it was well attended and a great meal was served with class by the youth. After the meal the auction began. A total of nine desserts made by church members were auctioned off. Every one of them were works of art and satisfied everybody’s sweet tooth and then some. The auction was a success and all proceeds goes towards the youth annual summer mission trip.
Talent Show – 5/4/19: After being absent for a number of years, Fountain Park Church brought back our Talent Show. It was a big success with eleven acts ranging from very talented to very silly. Everyone enjoyed a meal prior to the show. During the show there was plenty of audience participation with sing along and pop quizzes along with some embellished stories about the performers. It was a fun night for all and we hope to bring it back as an annual event.
Russian Christmas in July Dinner
(July 25, 2018): About five dozen church members and guests enjoyed an evening eating Russian food celebrating how people in Russia during Christmas.
Food included the main course, Golubtsy (stuffed cabbage with meat – Right/top), Borshch (soup – Left/top), Shuba Layered Salad (herring, eggs, beets, carrots, potatoes – Left/middle), Krab i Kukuruzy Salad (crab & corn), Russian Sausage (From Brockman’s Market), Oivje Salad (meat, potatoes, carrots, eggs, peas & pickles), Shirazi Salad (cucumber, oil, vinegar, dill & onion), Kutya Wheat Pudding (grains, dates, cranberries, cream & lemon zest), Russian Cream Dessert (Right/bottom), Pryaniki (spice cookies – Left/bottom), Sbiten (spiced honey drink), White Russian Coffee.
After the dinner, Pastor Warren Waddell presented an interesting power point show describing his experiences doing mission work at Volgograd, Russia. The dinner was a fund raiser for his coming trip back to Volgograd in November. A free will offering was taken.
Salvation Ride (July 6, 2019): The Ride is much more than a fun day on two wheels: every dollar raised and each mile biked provides critical support for those in need through the Salvation Army that goes directly to those in Sheboygan County.
This year marked the 6th annual “Ride” (not a race). There are five routes: 10, 25, 50, 62.5 and 100 miles. There are well-stocked Rest Stops providing snacks and refreshments along with rest rooms along each route.
John & Vicki Winter, along with Mary Tryggeseth participated in the ride on July 6, 2019. Together they raised about $1,200 for the Sheboygan Salvation Army. Thank you to all that made donations!
