All are invited to a caroling experience this coming Sunday, December 11th! Following the Contemporary Worship Service this Sunday, join us in the Fellowship Hall for a burger lunch courtesy of Pastor Martin. Following the lunch, we will go out and sing Christmas carols in the neighborhood! After that, we'll go back to the church and warm up with some hot apple cider!
We would love to see all of you there this Sunday. All ages are encouraged to be a part of this caroling experience!
“Nothing in all the vast, created universe could prepare us for God coming down as a helpless infant, or for Jesus the son of God intentionally positioning himself as a mere servant, identifying with the lowest of lows. It's enough to confound the mind, to make the heart contrite. This Advent, God’s great surprise changes everything.”
Fargo Faith UMC will be hosting an Advent book study on the Mike Slaughter book, Down to Earth. This study will take place at 7pm on Monday nights from December 5th-19th at Atomic Coffee in downtown Fargo.

As always, we are in need of volunteers to help with the Faith Food Ministry and distribution on Fridays! There are various tasks to be taken care of throughout the day to include setup of the room, loading and organizing food, distributing food, cleaning up after, and tearing the room down. All of this happens from 8am-4pm throughout the day. The next Friday we need help is on December 9th.
The Faith Food Ministry is also in need of egg cartons and plastic bags. Please drop these items off at the church as the FFM utilizes these items each week and are currently in short supply!
Faith Food Ministry is operated completely by volunteers. We are always in need of more volunteers. For more information, contact the Faith Food Ministry Coordinator Colette Carter at (701) 261-7515.
