DISCERNING THE VOICE OF GOD - A SMALL GROUP STUDY FOR WOMEN Discerning-750x500
 Do you feel that the ability to hear God's voice is for other people and not for you? Is it only for people who lived in Biblical times?
Not at all! The God who loved you enough to die for you loves you enough to talk to you. And wherever you are in your spiritual walk, God will find a way to speak to you in a way you will understand.
Through 7 sessions, discover the root to clear and daily communication with God—humble obedience. Learn how surrender unlocks His many blessings intended for us, centers us in His will, and helps us discern His voice in everyday life.
This class, facilitated by Marlee Beckom, meets Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. beginning February 21.  Space is limited to 20 participants.  Learn more and sign up here.

YOUTH OUTREACH PROJECTWHSyouthoutreachalternate3_md
Alamance County has high school students who live in unstable situations, which can result in homelessness.  When this occurs, these students often leave home with just the clothes on their backs.
Front Street UMC is collecting hygiene items, which will be assembled into “Necessity Packs” by our youth and stored with high school social workers for distribution as needed.
It is our hope that these “Necessity Packs” will provide some comfort to those students facing incredible challenges.
Download a list of items being collected or pick up a copy from outside the church office.  Monetary donations are also welcome.  Make checks payable to FSUMC with "Youth Outreach Project" in the memo-line.  For more information about this project, please contact John Charles Steele.  Thank you for your support!
