Line Dancing Creates Unique Neighboring Space

article written by Elizabeth Meador, FUMC Hurst's Line Dancing Instructor

I discovered line dancing after retiring as a classroom teacher and after recovery from breast cancer. I was ready to quit after my first session, convinced I was a disaster. But I had a terrific teacher who wouldn’t let me quit. After about three or four sessions, I was hooked. I eventually became the teacher’s substitute and took over the class when she left.

Line Dancing is offered Mondays at 1 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. All are welcome!

Worship Beyond the Church Walls

Article by Joe Motley, Parc Place volunteer. Joe preached last month during worship service at this local senior living community.

Our worship service at Parc Place exemplifies the powerful results of a partnership formed by two UMC churches dedicated to developing a meaningful, sustainable ministry. 

I volunteered to assist with Parc Place outreach because I wanted to be a small part of a ministry that expands and extends FUMC’s presence in our community. As followers of Christ, we are called to share God’s grace and love whenever we have an opportunity for outreach.

Home-Centered Ambassadors are Connecting the Body of Christ

As part of our Home-Centered Ambassador program, Rev. Michael Redmond visited his friend Rod Wernicke recently. Rod shared stories of his career in aerospace engineering. Rod also shared the story of how he planned and built these scale models from toothpicks!

Home-Centered Ambassadors visit their friends at least once a month and offer communion where desired. Kaye Miller also serves as a Home-Centered Ambassador. “As a Home Centered Ambassador, I just knew I would be the blessing to my people, but I’ve come to realize that I’m the one receiving the abundant blessing!” Kay said. “It’s rewarding and a pleasure to spend time and share with them.”

Do you know someone who needs a visit? Would you like to become a Home-Cented Ambassador? Contact Sarah Boyette at
