Voter Registration at FUMC on July 15
Register or re-register to vote on Sunday, July 15th before and after worship. Many Colorado voters are unaware that you will not receive the mail-in ballot you may be expecting in October, if you, like thousands of others, did not vote in the mid-term 2010 election – unless you re-register to receive your ballot by mail. If you don’t remember or are uncertain, please take advantage of the opportunity to re-register at the table provided (1-page form, takes less than 2 mnutes!)
And, of course, newcomers to Colorado or those first-timers who will be 18 before election day, Nov. 6, are welcome to register.
There will be NO Executive meeting in July and the sub-groups will re-start in September. The School of Christian Mission is July 12th-14th at St Andrews United Methodist Church in Highlands Ranch, there is also a one day event on August 25th at Brentwood UMC. Please contact Connie Takamine for details. The District Day Apart is July 28th in Limon CO – also see Connie for details and registration.
