Prayer Opportunities | Prayer is such an important part of a church's life. FUMC offers many opportunities to strengthen your prayer life. Please check out our prayer ministry page. We offer prayer groups, a prayer chain, an intercessory prayer group, and many other opportunities to kneel before our Lord and Savior and share your burdens and worship and praise. For what other great nation has God so near to it as the Lord our God is whenever we call to him?

Weekly Prayer Ministry | Wednesdays at 6 PM
Our Prayer Ministry will also continue to run every day of the week with prayer partners meeting for one hour a day with a one-week-at-a time commitment. Please sign up in pairs to pray for one hour a day during your week for the Kingdom of God to come more fully in our church and our community and beyond. We will continue to promote the prayer team ministry on Sunday mornings with the prayer clipboard circulated periodically.

Missions Committee Evangelism CD | Jesus – Help in Times of Need Devotional CD

John Fatora and Irene Tomchik published a CD a few years back that shares the message of Jesus Christ in the spirit of John Wesley.

It is the vision of the Missions Committee that this CD will be a continuation of the Discipleship process that we are pursuing as a church. We have been growing and training as disciples over the past few years and feel now is the season to begin moving beyond our church family into the community using this CD as a tool to help share the life of Christ with our neighbors and friends.

Copies are available for drive-by pickup under the carport; or ask your small group leader for copies to give to friends who are open to receive them. Click here if you would like to listen or download the CD.

If you have any questions, please contact the Church Office at 570.385.3941 or office@havenfirstumc.org.

Next Community Lunch is July 13 at 12 PM
All are welcome to share this time of fellowship. If you would like to sponsor a Community Lunch, please contact the Church Office at 570.385.3941 for contact  information regarding available dates.

Men's Breakfast | June 15 at 8:00 AM
For more information, please contact the Church Office at 570.385.3941.

There are times when things are not going well for each of us, perhaps we ourselves are sick, perhaps there are loved ones who are sick or hurting, maybe there is a family emergency or crisis, during these times you don't need to be alone. Our Pastors, Minister of Visitation, or even our Lay Leader would be very happy to come and visit with you. Before you reach a place where you feel alone and that no one cares, please call the Church Office and let the office staff know that you are in need of a visit. The message will be passed along quietly to the Pastors and a time for a personal visit can be arranged. Others of us tend to prefer to weather these times quietly and by ourselves; if that is you, please be aware that there is a Prayer Ministry team that is willing to intercede and pray for you. You can access the Prayer Ministry through the website, by calling the church office, or prayer chain.

 

Most importantly, remember that you have a church family that is willing to walk along side of you at all times. Also, please know that you don't need to be a Pastor or Lay Leader to visit and care for your Brothers and Sisters in Christ. You can visit our homebound members. If you enjoy getting to know new people and would like to spend some time with members of our First Church family that can no longer make it to church on a Sunday morning, please call the Church office or simply put a note in the offering plate and someone will contact you. Thank you for taking the time to spend a few minutes sharing the love of Jesus with our members who can no longer come to church!

Did you know…?

FUMC saves Redner’s receipts

  • Do you shop at Redner’s? If so, do you have a Save‑A‑Tape /Pump Perks/Rewards Card?

  • FUMC participates in the Redner’s 1% Save‑A‑Tape program. Remember to use your Redner’s Save‑A‑Tape/Pump Perks/Rewards Card and put your entire receipt in the plastic containers on the table in the narthex marked Redner’s receipts.

  • By using your rewards card each time you purchase merchandise (excludes, fuel purchases and items controlled by the federal or state government such as tax, milk, and tobacco products) at Redner’s Warehouse Markets, your receipt will be designated as a 1% Save‑A‑Tape customer receipt with a Save‑A‑Tape total printed on the receipt. Receipts that have been highlighted or written on are not eligible, so please do not mark or circle the receipts. Participating in the 1% Save‑A‑Tape program does not exclude your ability to receive gas points, etc.

  • If you don’t already have a rewards card, you can pick one up at any Redner’s locations. The card is free and you DO NOT HAVE TO GIVE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION to receive the card. Your name is not on any mailing list if you request a card.

  • Our church gets 1% of the total of all receipts. For example, if the receipts total $5,000, we would get $50 to be divided between Christian Ed and the Youth Group. Please consider participating in this easy program.
