MONTHLY BOOK CLUB
Join the Monthly Book Club in June as they read and discuss 7 Men and 7 Women and the Secret of Their Greatness by Eric Metaxas. Author Eric Metaxas explores the question of what makes a great person great? You will read the stories of 14 heroic individuals who changed the course of history and shaped the world in astonishing ways. People like George Washington, William Wilberforce, Susanna Wesley, Jackie Robinson, Corrie ten Boom and Rosa Parks. These and other lives profiled in 7 Men and 7 Women reveal the secret to a life of greatness--by responding to call to live for something greater than oneself. You will find this book in one combined edition or two separate books. 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! They meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month. This month they will meet on June 22 at 7:00pm in person in Room 273 – upstairs above the Family Life Center. If you are interested or need more information, contact Kim Arnott at 797-8612 or .

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY PANEL BUILD
Fishers UMC has supported Habitat for Humanity as one of our missions for several years, they are a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. We have been blessed to be one of the few onsite panel builds that they plan on doing this year. A panel build consists of building the wall panels for a house. Not sure if you are qualified to help? If you can use a hammer, you are qualified! The panel build at Fishers UMC will be June 19th, with 2 shifts: 7:30a-10:00a and 9:30a-12:00p. We will also need 5 Nail Captains who stay the entire build time and help lead a group along with the Habitat for Humanity leader, called a Tiger. There is also a need for 10 people from the early shift to come at 7:00a to help sort wood into groups. This project will need 45 people per shift, so there are a lot of opportunities for our Fishers UMC family to Be A Blessing!

A few things to note: You must be at least 16 years old to participate, and 16-17 year olds must have a parent present. All safety items will be provided and closed toe shoes need to be worn. You are always welcome to bring your own hammer.
