CHUPPERS
Chuppers (our Church Supper) takes place on Wednesdays - the starting time for the meal is 5:15 with Bible Studies for all ages beginning at 6:00 p.m.  Plan on bringing your family out on Wednesday nights for a great meal, some delightful fellowship and diving into the Word of God.  As the old saying goes "Seven days without church makes one weak!"  Call the church office by Tuesday afternoon to make a reservation for the meal.  The cost is $3.00 per individual or $8.00 per one household family.  THERE IS NO CHUPPERS OR WEDNESDAY NIGHT PROGRAMMING THIS WEEK DUE TO THANKSGIVING.


COMMUNITY THANKSGIVING SERVICE
This Sunday, November 23rd, the Jersey County Ministerial Alliance will host a Community Thanksgiving Service at the First United Methodist Church at 7:00 p.m.  The service will feature music from the combined Praise Teams from FUMC and First Baptist, along with an anthem from the Community Choir and a message from Pastor Brent Meyer.  A free-will offering will be received to support the missions and ministries of the JCMA. A time for fellowship and refreshments will follow the service.


HANGING OF THE GREENS SERVICE
The first Sunday of Advent is November 30th.  The first Advent candle to light our path toward Bethlehem will be lit during morning worship.  We will then re-gather at 6:00 p.m. for our Hanging of the Greens service, which will feature on original short story by Pastor Brent, rooted in anthems from the Kid's Choir and Chancel Choir.  Refreshments will be served following the service in the Fellowship Hall. 


THANKSGIVING GIVE-BACK
This Sunday, November 23rd the Mission Board along with the Fusion Youth Group are asking all church attenders to bring two dry food or canned good food item per household member as they attempt to raise 1,000 items to help stock the local food pantries in preparation for Thanksgiving.  Our local food pantries have been short of food lately.  Thank you for whatever you can contribute.
