2019 CONFIRMATION CLASS ... FUMC-Norwood is blessed to have a number of Confirmation age youth (Sixth Grade and over), and we invite each of these to participate in our upcoming Confirmation Class. We will begin with a meeting of interested young people and their parents on Sunday, January 27, during the Sunday School hour, in the Sims Parlor. This year, Rev. Bill & Lisa will return to a more concise Confirmation curriculum. We look forward to concluding Confirmation and welcoming these young people into full Church membership sometime this Spring.
SCCM FOOD CHALLENGE ... FUMC-Norwood has participated in SCCM’s Food Challenge in years past, with each family bringing in requested items for the SCCM Food Pantry. However, this year will begin something new. All the food we collect in the Norwood area will stay to feed hungry folks in our community. In early March, we hope to open an SCCM Food Pantry in the Community Center in Norwood which will be supported by the Churches of the Norwood Ministerial Association. This is an exciting way for us to make a real difference in our own home. In January, we are asked to bring in canned vegetables. You will find collection boxes in the Sanctuary Hallway and in the office Hallway.
Meigs Turgeon from Duke Divinity School will be doing an internship here at First UMC Norwood this summer. We are looking forward to his visit with us.
