Announcements for March 7th

Holy Communion
We will celebrate Holy Communion as part of our worship service. If you plan to worship online and were not able to pick up communion elements this past week, you are welcome to use bread/crackers and juice/water for this time of communion.

Special Communion Offering: Camp Ministry
Summer camp provides students with a unique opportunity to experience God away from home, outdoors and with other students of similar age. Every year, Florence UMC kids and youth are encouraged to spend a week at Camp Aldersgate or Camp Loucon, two of our Kentucky UM Camps. As we feel it is an important opportunity for students, Florence UMC subsidizes part of the cost for each of our church family kids who attend these summer camp experiences. As a special communion offering opportunity, we invite you to consider giving to our Camp Ministry Scholarship Fund to help support Florence kids and youth attend summer camp this year. For more information on attending Camp Aldersgate or Camp Loucon, please contact Pastor Anna.

To make a special gift, please reference Camp Scholarship on your check or giving envelope. If giving online, please select the “Kids to Camp” Scholarship drop-down option. This online giving option will be available through March 14th. Visit this webpage for more information on how to support Florence UMC and it’s ministries.

Reminder: No Children’s Church on Communion Sundays
We do not have Children’s Church on Communion Sundays. Nursery is available – during both services – for kids birth to 5 years old. Families with kids entering the nursery should still stop at Kid Check-in Station, in the Gathering Place, before going to the nursery.
