Invitation to New Member Gathering with Sarah & Ross
Would you like to ask some questions about joining the membership of Front Street?  Have you joined the church in the past year, and would like to learn more about how to get plugged in?
On October 21, at 7:00 p.m., my wife, Sarah, and I would like to invite those who have joined the church during the past year, and those who are considering joining the church, to our home for dessert.  During that time we will share some information about the United Methodist Church, and Front Street, in particular.  (Think of it as a mini new member class.)  There will be time for questions, and of course, you will get to meet others who are relatively new to the church.
Our address is 205 Driftwood Drive, Gibsonville.  If you could let us know you are coming, it would be helpful.  My email address is  See you then!
The long-awaited Columbarium is now in place on the Front Street side of the church.  It contains 60 niches, each able to contain up to two sets of cremains.  The Policy and Reservation documents are presently being finalized.  By the end of September everything should be in place.  At that time, those who are interested will be able to proceed with reserving a niche.  We will publicize how to make your reservation once all forms are finalized.  The prices approved by the Church Council are $1,000 for the first set of cremains, and $500 for a second set.  Thank you for your patience.
Financial Stewardship
Just look over this newsletter and notice all of the activity going on through Front Street!  Whether you are a kid, youth, or an adult, there are opportunities to engage your faith inside and outside the church.  And it all happens because you give.
Yes, right now we are a bit behind because of the summer slump.  However, I believe that if the ministries of the church are important to you, your financial giving this fall will show it.
FYI, as we begin to finalize our planning for the 2019 Budget, I invite you to lift our church’s budget in prayer.  Also, be praying about how you will respond to the opportunity to support the ministries of our church in the new year.  Our Stewardship Campaign will be in November this year, and will center around the theme of Giving Thanks.
Thank you to everyone who continues to support the ministries of the church in a sacrificial way.  We couldn’t do what we do without you!
