When it comes to eating s’mores under starry skies and singing songs around a campfire, little has changed over the years. There’s still no place like summer camp. The United Methodist Church has a great commitment to camping. The camping ministry of the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church has a long tradition of Christ centered camping experiences that transform the lives of young people. This ministry has centered around the Warren W. Willis Camp facilities in Fruitland Park. Warren Willis offers eight weeks of classic overnight camps for Rising 4th grade students through recently graduated seniors. There are three classic camps: Elementary, Middle School and High School. Letters for parents with instructions, camp registration and scholarship forms are located in the church Lobby for interested youth and parents. For more information, contact Peggy Fallin at 904-315-1880 or email@example.com.
On February 4, 2018 Shores United Methodist Church will be participating in another Super Bowl that is much more important than a football game. We’re talking about the Souper Bowl of Caring. We will be collecting money and canned goods and giving it to the St. Johns Ecumenical Food Pantry. They help the hungry and the homeless. At the end of the services when everyone is leaving, we will be at the door holding soup pots and asking for help in filling the soup pots. That way, we can give the money and canned goods to help feed people who are hungry and we can all play in the Souper Bowl.
Bible Study begins Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at 10 am and Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at 6 pm. Study is for eight weeks. Cost of book is $10.00. New Testament Study of the Gospel of Luke. “Journey inside the pages of Scripture to meet a personal God who enters individual lives and begins a creative work from the inside out. Shaped with the individual in mind, Immersion encourages simultaneous engagement both with the Word of God and with the God of the Word to become a new creation in Christ. Immersion, inspired by a fresh translation–the Common English Bible–stands firmly on Scripture and helps readers explore the emotional, spiritual, and intellectual needs of their personal faith. More importantly, they’ll be able to discover God’s revelation through readings and reflections.”

Smart Phone Workshop Do you carry around your phone and wonder what to do with it? Do you see all those hipsters doing things like talk to text and wonder how they manage it?

Do you just get tired of asking your grandkids to do things on your phone? Let your smart phone make you smarter! Come to the class and bring your phone! We will work on skills that will make your grandkids envious! You CAN do this and we can help you! The class is free to church members and we are happy to help all ages but it’s geared toward “more mature citizens”!
