FUMC offering "Summer of Fun"


As we head into the summer we have a great deal to be thankful for: the COVID numbers are lower than they have been since the start of the pandemic and life is starting to feel like normal.

At First Methodist of Tallassee we have decided to use as many opportunities as we can to spend time together and to simply have fun together. This summer can be a season of renewal for us as we prepare for the work that we know God has in store for us.

So we have unofficially dubbed this season “The Summer of Fun.” I’d like to share some of the events coming up over the next couple of weeks:

“Connections” – fellowship events every Wednesday night. We’re starting weekly fellowship events this Wednesday, June 9 at 6 PM. We’ll have a meal together, devotion, and then fun games and activities together. This event is free, and will start each Wednesday at 6 PM in our Fellowship Hall.

Picnic at the Lake – this Sunday, June 13th from 2 PM until 5 PM at Lake Martin (1113 Martin Dam Road). We will have a family picnic with games and food! The event is free, come enjoy a fun afternoon on Lake Martin!

“Preparing for Renewal” – a two-night revival. On Monday and Tuesday, June 14th and 15th we will have two pastors who have served and lived here in Tallassee come back to speak to us about experiencing renewal. Dr. Hayes McKay, who is pastor at Covenant United Methodist in Dothan, will speak on Monday night, and Dr. Hunter Pugh, who is pastor at Brantley United Methodist in Brantley.

Both services will start at 7 AM.

You are invited to join us for these events during our Summer of Fun! My prayer is that this summer will be a time to express love to one another and encourage one another for what God has in store.
