A Beginner's Bible Reading Plan - Month 8,9


We are called upon by God to practice stewardship of the resources with which we have been gifted. This includes how we apportion our time, our energy and our financial resources, not just at church but in all of our earning, spending and saving.
With that in mind, for the next few months we are offering monthly suggestions for personal financial stewardship. From the Dave Ramsey website, here is your second installment:

Save on insurance with an Endorsed Local Provider (ELP).
Are you paying too much for insurance? Are you sure? A lot of people don’t actually realize how much money they can save by taking a deeper look at their insurance expenses. Trying to make sense of it all on your own can be overwhelming, so give an ELP a call to see if they can help sort it out for you.

Sermons All Week... All Year

If you miss a sermon and want to stay current with a series, or review past ones, the text and audio podcast of each week’s message are uploaded to You can find texts and audio for the past two years… you could put together your own private retreat!

Online Connections

Are you a regular user of Facebook? Jen Johnson has offered to help keep our church page updated with short notices of events and occasional announcements.

Let Jen or staff know if you can help with newer lines of communication. There’s a whole generation who may not read The Messenger or church bulletins but may well respond to invitations received on their phone. If you are connected to online worlds, help FUMC connect people through modern means Wesley surely would use today.

Do you like spending time with children? We still need volunteers to be in the Nursery on Sunday mornings during the 10:00am worship service. If you would be willing to give of your time in this way, please contact Martie at the church, 715-842-2201. Thank you!
