What Do You Want For Your Children?
Pat Bruns and Betsy Lay are hosting a conversation with the parents of our children. We will gather on Saturday, June 30th at 9:30am in the FUMC youth room to explore the question, “What do you want for children at FUMC?” Join us as we explore the dreams that we hold for the children of our church.
