The Journey is a 10-month (Feb-Nov) congregational spiritual growth tool based on John 10:10. Our congregation will experience during worship, teachings on the monthly topics and be challenged to take part in these transformational disciplines. Look for the Adult Participant's Guide under the Ministries Tab above.
The Gospel of John is the most deeply spiritual of the four gospels. This writing is filled with rich images and profound truths, but John notes that his aim in writing the gospel is that readers will not only believe in Jesus Christ, but that they “may have life in his name.” This Lent, Pastor Lewis will lead this six-week study on Thursdays at 6 p.m. starting on February 11th, and on Mondays at noon starting on February 15th. You’ll follow the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus through the Gospel of John and understand the context of some of the best-known verses in the New Testament. The cost of the book is $15, or $16 for a large print. Please sign up for your book and to let Pastor Lewis know if you will come on Thursday evening or Monday at noon.

2016 IS CHURCH DIRECTORY YEAR!
Yes, it has been five years since we have published a Church Directory! Portrait photography for this year's directory will take place the last two weeks of September. Please take lots of photos of all church activities until then and send them to James@marshallfumc.org. Any photos of happenings in the last year will also be welcome. We want everyone to be represented, so please plan to participate!
The "Stork Patrol" is born!
With the impending arrival of more babies, the Nurture Team has decided to form a "Stork Patrol" for our church family. This group will prepare and take meals to a family when they bring an infant home from the hospital. We know this ministry will be greatly appreciated and warmly received by the young families in our congregation.
Jenn Smitley is coordinating this effort so if you would like to help in any way please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
