    Seasons of Celebration
    You are invited to share in an All Church Worship Experience on Sunday, July 30 at 10 am in the Family Life Center Gym as we culminate our Seasons of Celebration sermon series! It will be a special time to celebrate who we are as the congregation of Fishers UMC in a unified way, as we worship in ways old and new. We would love to see how you are involved at Fishers UMC and encourage you to wear any ministry shirt, both past and present, to the celebration.  Following our time of worship will be a time of food and fellowship.  We ask those with last names A-P bring a side dish to share, and last names Q-Z bring a dessert to share.  The main dish and drinks will be provided by the Church.  We look forward to spending time together with our Church family in one place celebrating who we've been, who we are, and who we will become!

    Monthly Book Club
    Join the Monthly Book Club in July as we read and discuss The Healing Quilt by Wanda Brunstetter.  In the next episode of the Quilting Club books, retired Amish newlyweds Emma and Lamar Miller have decided to buy a winter place in Sarasota, Florida. But it wouldn't feel like home if Emma didn't take her quilting materials and offer classes. Wounded and hurting people have a knack for finding their way to her classes for some quilting therapy: Jennifer, a pregnant new mom; Mike, a charter boat owner; Erika, a wheelchair-bound teen; Kim, a waitress; Noreen, a newly-retired widow; and BJ, an artist facing illness. And when Jan, visits from Indiana, romance is also added to the class discussions.  If you are looking for a way to combine your love of reading and books with a small group atmosphere of fellowship, this is the place for you!  The Book Club meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month.  This month we will meet on July 25.  If you are interested or need more information, contact Kim Arnott at 797-8612 or .
