Lent 2017
“Roll Down Justice”

Palm Sunday
April 9

Holy Week Pilgrimage
April 13, 6:00-8:00pm

Easter Sunday
April 16

Lent is a time of reminding ourselves who we are called to be in this world. Our Lenten series is inspired by Amos, a prophet whose message is that God calls us to let “justice roll down like waters.”  Through powerful music and the remembrance of our rituals of baptism, this season will offer us reflection and renewed inspiration to let our voices be tuned to the heart of the Gospel-proclaiming God’s love for all people.  What prejudices are we challenged to “give up” as a Lent practice of abstinence, and further, how are we willing to “give” of ourselves for the sake of the world?


Scholarship Applications

The applications for students attending either ESU, Flint Hills Technical College or Baker University are available now. They may be picked up at the office during office hours and returned April 7.

Join us for the ultimate pep rally – there is Victory in Jesus!

The Bible is filled with examples of God’s people shouting and cheering in response to His mighty acts of power.  We hope you will mark your calendar and watch for more information about this great week coming to FUMC this summer.

If you are interested in leading or helping with VBS – join us on Sunday, February 26 in the Parlor following late service for an introduction to VICTORY and the many ways you can be involved in VBS!
