This Sunday!  All Welcome!
FUMC Preschool graduates 12 kindergartners!  Congratulations to the class, and thanks to families and teachers!  

Comment on Facebook

All 5 of my children attended FUMC Preschool and they loved it. They were better prepared for public school than most of their classmates. All their teachers told me through the years, that each of my kids were prepared for Kindergarten from day 1. My youngest is now 28, so it has been many years since preschool and I am thrilled the school is still going strong!

Today FUMC’s pipe organ was moved to be renovated.  This has been a careful and delicate project!  The substitute “loaner” organ has been installed while the renovation takes place.  We are expecting the return of the pipe organ at the end of summer.  Thanks for everyone’s support and patience in making this important project possible!
