Thank you to Bill and Jean Hermann for hosting us at their beautiful home
on July 24th! We had the opportunity to get to know them a little better
(Bill the jokester and Jean the artist!) and play in their sanctuary of a
yard. Jean makes pretty mean peanut butter cookies too 🙂 We look forward
to more fellowship opportunities with them and other members of the
Can you imagine over 5200 sr. high youth from across the globe celebrating
the love of Jesus? Can you imagine what it really looks like when over
5000 receive communion? Can you imagine what it’s like to worship “youth
style” with that many people? That’s what 27 youth and 3 adults from the
Lake Huron Presbytery had the privilege to experience July 16-20 during
Triennium at Purdue University. Out of the 30, 14 youth and 2 adults were
from Fenton First! Thank you to all who prayed and supported us on our
journey – we had a wonder-full time!!!
A Ladies’ Tea will be held Saturday, May 11, at 1:00 PM. All ladies of the church are invited, and guests are welcome. A brunch menu of pastries, fruit, and finger sandwiches will be served, along with coffee and tea. Please bring your favorite fancy teacup! There is no charge for this event, but please RSVP to Janet Stork (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A Kitchen Health Department Orientation will be held Sunday, April 14, at approximately noon (after coffee hour). The session will cover the Genesee County Health Department rules that the church is obligated to follow in order to avoid being cited by the county. Because of our renovation and changes in the law, we are no longer “grandfathered”, and must abide by all Health Department regulations.
Attendance at one of these orientation sessions is mandatory for members who are intending to work in the church kitchen for events, coffee hour, funeral dinners, etc. Especially all coffee hour team captains should plan to attend. The session will take approximately one hour.
The Chili Cook-Off will be held Sunday, April 7th, following the 11:00 service. Chili chefs wanting to compete should sign up in Fellowship Hall, near the bulletin board.
The congregation is invited to sample all the chilis, along with toppings, cornbread, beverages, and a dessert, and vote for their favorites by making a small contribution. Come and support your favorite chili cook.
The annual Potato Bake was served during the fellowship hour following services on Sunday, March 17, St. Patrick’s Day! How appropriate! Approximately 80 baked potatoes were served with the full range of toppings, and other refreshments including green lemonade. The response was very enthusiastic!
The annual Seder Meal was held Tuesday, March 26. The Seder is the traditional Jewish celebration of the Passover, and we recognize the roots of our faith in the Jewish tradition. A kosher-style meal is served, including the traditional lamb, a number of elements that represent the Passover story, and four glasses of wine or juice.
About 65 members and guests attended to share the meal, hear the story of the Passover, and participate in group singing. It was a wonderful evening!
This is an adult Bible study of the Old Testament lessons in the Lectionary for Lent. The meal begins at 5:30pm, studies are from 6:15-7:30. We will be collaborating with St. Jude’s Episcopal Church, and all sessions will be held in our Fellowship Hall. Child care is available in our nursery.
