(NEW) BIRTHDAY MINISTRY NEEDS YOUR HELP
Did you know there’s a Birthday Ministry here at Fishers UMC? Each month, we send out cards to each person celebrating a birthday. With a congregation our size, this takes about 75 cards each month. If you are a card maker, or have done some pandemic cleaning and have birthday cards you’d like to donate, please contact Jennifer Pugh at 317-849-1805 or We will be sure to put them to good use!

GENEROSITY STUDY
Fishers UMC is starting off 2021 by learning what it means to be Generous. We will get a chance to hear about Generosity in a 6 week sermon series, and an accompanying book study, both titled "The Generosity Challenge".  There will be 3 opportunities to participate in the study, all over zoom.

  • Sundays beginning January 24th 7-8p
  • Thursdays beginning January 28th at 9:30-10:30a 
  • Thursdays beginning January 28th  at 6:30-7:30p  

Sign up to attend the study at https://fishersumc.org/generosity/. After you have signed up, you will be contacted with all the zoom details and class materials.

MONTHLY BOOK CLUB
Join the Monthly Book Club in January as they read and discuss The Words Between Us by Erin Bartels. Robin Windsor has spent most of her life under an assumed name, running from her family's shameful past. She thought she'd finally found sanctuary in a rather unremarkable used bookstore. When she receives an eerily familiar book in the mail, Robin is thrown back into the past. That book is soon followed by the other books and Robin fears her past may be about to be exposed all over again. 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! We meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month. This month we will meeting on January 26 at 7:00 pm via Zoom. If you are interested or need more information, or need the Zoom link to join us, contact Kim Arnott at 797-8612 or .
