OUR CHURCH FAMILY
FMC is starting its second virtual choir project! Anyone and everyone is invited to join in singing a setting of "My life flows on." Adults and children of all ages are welcome to join. Participants can access project information and resources at following link: FMC My Life Flows On. The deadline for video submissions is Sunday July 12. Any questions can be directed to Nathan Swartzendruber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Elders have decided that we will continue to worship via Zoom during July. A committee will be formed to develop health and safety protocols that will be implemented when we begin to gather again on our church campus. The Elders have prepared a brief survey to receive your feedback on congregational life during these months of sheltering at home. Please take time and give us your response to the questions. Please respond by July 26.
If you are longing to read a new book or the kids need a change in Shalom books, the FMC Library will begin curbside pick-up service on July 16 and 17. If you would like to participate in the Curbside Library:
All are invited to help us celebrate Mia Graber‘s high school graduation at an outdoor celebration at East Union Mennonite Church (5615 Gable Ave., Kalona), Sunday July 19, 5-8 PM. We understand this is a tricky time so we respect any decision about attending and thank you for your support over the years!! – Ruth, Galen, Natalie, and Mia Graber
Karen and Terry will be on vacation through July 20. During that time if you have any concerns please speak to one of our Elders: Cheryl Martin Miller (chair), Mark Gingerich, Isaiah Goertz, Nancy Halder, Roger Schrock, Maya Kehr Yoder.
Reminder: The church building is locked and the staff are working from home.
