Adult Forum
Several years ago, FUMC committed to provide missionary support for Steve and Diantha Hodges for their work in South Sudan. On Sunday, we will have a Skype session with Diantha to hear an update of her work and they are helping to build a new nation. Steve will be in another part of Africa and we hope he can join us also. It is great to have new technology to communicate with others around the globe. Join us at 9:00 am in the Church Parlor.
