Our FUMC Benevolence Pantry has been selected by Beltone to be the recipients of this year’s food drive! If we help them donate enough food to win the Beltone’s Southeast District’s food donation contest they will be able to fit a child from our community with state of the art hearing aids!

FILL THE TRUCK will be at both Crestview locations on Saturday, Sept 29 beginning at 10:00AM to accept food donations.

You can also drop off donations to the Beltone office next to Panera’s in Redstone Plaza Mon-Fri from 8:30AM-4:30PM.

The Crossroads Center will be open at 4:30PM for everyone to help us fill our timeline and to peruse the relics & photos that we’ve dug up from the archives. We’ll have a special guest, Dave Barkalow who will walk all of us through building a timeline of our church’s history. We will eat together, remember together, and figure out together what our stories mean for the future of our church. This special event calls for a special meeting time. We will start serving food at 5:00, Dave will start leading us at 6PM, and then we will have a brief Church Council meeting from 7:30-8PM. We’d love to see you there, because YOU are part of OUR story.
