For an evening of fun with brass, come see, hear, and enjoy the Saint Louis Brass at FUMC on Sunday, October 15 at 5 p.m. The concert is free, and childcare is provided.
Although the members of the Saint Louis Brass look formal when they perform, audiences are pleasantly surprised at the relaxed and informal atmosphere they create. With extraordinary grace, the ensemble transforms the stuffiness associated with classical chamber music, combining professionalism and showmanship to produce a thoroughly enjoyable musical experience.
The church grows when we are doing the mission and ministry of the church that both cares for our members and reaches beyond the church doors to our community. On October 15 you have the opportunity to visit with members of every ministry and mission of our church to see where your gifts best match ministries of our church and where God may be seeking to use you in ways you never imagined. Take time Sunday Morning, October 15, to investigate the missions and ministries of FUMC.
Helping Hands Ministry is a mission at FUMC working to help elderly homeowners make their homes safe and dry.
