Mark your calendars now for a special weekend! To kick off our Sunday school year we will be having a joint Sunday service on September 9th at 9:30 am.  Come for a special service full of music from Central College’s Flying Pans.  This award winning steel drum band will be the centerpiece for the morning activities.

At 10:30 following the service we will be having a special picnic on the lawn with food and beverages as well as games for the whole family.

Registration for Sunday school will also be taking place during the picnic.  Everyone young, old, and in between are encouraged to look at the class list and sign up.  Sunday school classes will officially start the third Sunday in September.

Volunteers are needed to help with tear down and disassembling games, tents, etc. on September 9th  after the Rally Day Celebration event.  Please contact the church office if available to help. 

The Nationals pancakes at the armory is asking for our help again.   Sign-up sheets are available on the table in the church entry way.   Call Kay Jensen with any questions at 641-842-5325. 

We are in need of lawn games and volleyball nets to be borrowed by the church for our Rally Day event on September 9th.   Please contact the church office if you have any we can borrow.  

There are currently only a few openings left at MSPS for the 2012/2013 school year.   If you or someone you know is interested in preschool for 2 year olds through 5 year olds, please call the preschool at 641-842-2193.  

Congratulations to Kevin and Teresa Glesener on the birth of their new granddaughter!

My family and I want to thank everyone for their prayer, cards, gifts and memorial contributions on the passing of my father Lester Riggle on June 17th. I also want to thank those that covered for me during my bereavement leave and filled the pulpit during that time; thank you Phyllis, Joyce and Pastor Brent. We felt all of your prayers and so appreciate your care! God is good!  Pastor Lane and Family

I want to thank everyone who sent cards for my 85th birthday as well as everyone who wished me a happy birthday.  I am truly blessed.   Edna Poortinga

There are never enough words or thank you to express ones feelings for all the great fellowship of our Church.  Your prayers, cards, phone calls and words of concern have helped greatly to get me through the rough road of my health issues. I know you will be there again when needed.  Thank You to Pastor Lane for special prayers, visits and being with Cora during my surgery. Sam Rathmel

The F.U.N. committee greatly appreciated all the support we received for Ag in the City.  Thanks for donating the delicious pies and all our brothers and sisters for helping set up, serving the meal, and cleaning up afterward.   We cleared around $900 which will be used to fund outreach programs of the Church.  

Thank You and God Bless! 
Thank you for rewarding me with the First United Methodist Church Scholarship!  I greatly appreciate your support in helping me pursue my education!  Sincerely, Dana Haselhuhn

A big thank you to everyone who helped with our Summer Party as well as VBS 2012! 

Thanks so very much for contribution of $155 for the Ludhiana Christian Medical College and Hospital. Your gift will be used to bring healing and wholeness to the very poor people who are served by the hospital and will also be used to enable nursing students from poor Christian families to receive training to serve as health professionals.  Many will be the first of their families to receive this kind of education.  Thanks again for your gift.  Max Marble, Office of Creative Ministries
