Whether one has children in school or not, August is always a sign of new beginnings, as a rhythm of another academic year begins to sound. We are a community that is blessed with a gift -- the gift of our freedom to go to school. Indeed, at FUMCMC, we strive to show our community that it is important to be open to learning throughout our lives. In that spirit, join us in all of our Sunday morning worship services for a time of blessing. Whether you are children, youth or adult, we invite you to bring your backpacks, briefcases or laptop bag to worship and celebrate a blessing of backpacks.
