We hope to see in The Zone at FUMC this year!

Sunday Mornings

9:00 am - 9:30 am           BREAKFAST CLUB in THE ZONE
                                                   Continental style breakfast and hanging out.

Join us for a bite to eat, game to play, catching up with friends, making new ones, or an early morning nap. Cereal, snacks, juice, even waffles. Our gracious hosts Lynda and Heather continue to love us, by feeding our stomachs. Life is already hard; so don’t make it harder, by skipping breakfast.


9:30 am - 10:30 am         YOUTH SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS, HIBBARD HALL
                                         
           Led by Zach Walker, Hibbard Hall

This Youth Sunday School class focuses on being intentional. Intentionally listen to God, for God, and seeing him anywhere and everywhere. We take the songs that make it on the radio.  Listen for what God can teach us through others, as we share scripture, ideas, and stories, that not only inspire, but remind us that God is not just at Church. 


10:30 am - 11:00 am       HANG TIME in THE ZONE
                                                    The Zone closes at 11:00 am
