Combined Worship this Sunday – July 4th
We are combining the 9 o’clock and 11 o’clock services this week and will meet at the park. We will begin at 9:00 with an Inter-Generational Sunday School Scavenger Hunt with a spiritual lesson. Worship will begin at 10 o’clock and then everyone is off to their own gatherings and picnics. Please come and join us for this special day.
REMINDER: Please do NOT mail checks or other communication to the church through the U.S. postal system. We continue to have very spotty or non-existent mail service. The church office has gone up to two weeks without receiving mail, even with going into the post office for pick up.
View the service later! You can watch any of our services on our YouTube channel. Just search for First United Methodist Church Chambersburg or click the link above.
We also have a dedicated phone number so you can listen to latest recorded service at 717-899-4JOY (4569).
We are asking folks not to mail donations through the US Postal service. Please hand-deliver them to the church, because we are having issues with receiving mail. We also have online giving available as well. Thank you for blessing us!
As you know FUMC assisted approximately 50 neighborhood children by enabling them to participate in virtual education during the school year. We financed the paid staff of the Boy’s and Girl’s Club who assisted the children with the technology as well as maintaining order and COVID protection. Our total cost for 2021 was $21,000 and as a result of the very generous contributions from our congregation we were able to pay all but $4,000. We would like to be able to cover the full amount through donations and hopefully we can do that over the next month.
Thank you and God bless you all.
