Vacation Bible School starts Monday at 5:45 pm

During each of the three services we will commission our VBS community of helpers. Pastor Steve will call you forward during the service. This is for registration volunteers, teachers, crew leaders, decoration helpers, food helpers, and anyone helping for VBS.

Immediately following the 10:55 service today we will decorate the sanctuary and fellowship hall for VBS. Helpers are invited to a pizza lunch immediately following the 10:55 service. We plan to be finished decorating by 2:30 pm. Come for part or the whole time – all help is very welcome.

The Emmaus Cluster will meet at Guntersville First United Methodist Church on July 12th at 6:30. Remember it is “pot luck”. If you bring a dessert, bring a drink to share.

The Fellowship Hall will be closed the week of July 24th – July 30th. The floors are being waxed and we ask that you DO NOT WALK on the floors. The work will start around 1:00 pm on Sunday, so please get everything you need out of the basement area before 1:00 pm.

Our church has a sound system and TV screens in the fellowship hall for presentations. Instructions will be posted on the sound cabinet this week. Using Apple TV, airplay on iPhone or iPad, you can wirelessly show videos, pictures, and keynote presentations or play music. If you have your own laptop (with HDMI cable), it can be used instead.

Fall Prayer Retreat – Pastor Steve invites you to an overnight prayer retreat for the men and women of Arab First UMC on Thursday-Friday, September 8-9, at the retreat center of Sacred Heart Monastery in Cullman. Steve will facilitate our journey, with one of the sessions hosted by one of the sisters. The theme will be “The Word is Very Near You: Three Ways to Pray the Scriptures.” Registration forms with all the details may be found on the Hospitality Table. Friends are welcome.
