June Prayer Calendar



Youth Summer Calendar

 
 


Pentecost

Pentecost is one of the great celebrations of the Christian Church, coming 50 days after Easter.  In the book of Acts we recognize Pentecost as the birth of the church — that means Pentecost is a birthday party of sorts.  Join us for the party! One Worship Service at 10am in the Sanctuary.

A variety of our music groups will perform, Pastor Brian will be preaching, and we will celebrate holy communion as one church family. Following worship there will be an abundance of refreshments on the quad, stick around and enjoy meeting people who regularly worship at other services than you on Sunday morning.



Welcome, Taylor!

FUMCCV is pleased to introduce Taylor Binney, our summer intern, to the congregation! We are excited to have Taylor join our staff this summer as she discerns the call God has placed on her life. Taylor is a 2019 Point Loma Nazarene University graduate with a degree in Education. Originally from Ventura County, Taylor has been involved in the United Methodist Church and on-campus ministries at PLNU for many years. She has been active in leading Discipleship Ministries and has a passion for small group ministry, creative worship, and social justice. We welcome Taylor and are blessed by the gifts and talents that she brings to us this summer.



Thank You, Sue Meyer!

You might have heard that Sue Meyer, our Director of Finance & Administration for the past 17+ years, is retiring at the end of June.  Sunday June 2nd will be a special day of honoring and thanking Sue for her tremendous work at FUMCCV. In each worship service (8, 930, 11) there will be a special presentation and at the end of each worship service Sue will be available in the quad to receive your well wishes. Lots of food will be prepared that day and available on the quad as will a number of gift baskets that we encourage you to fill with gifts of thanksgiving for Sue (what we mean are cards and cash).  Our hope is to put together a healthy “retirement travel fund” that will be used by Sue to take a couple trips back to the Midwest and East Coast to visit extended family and friends.



Taking a Walk Through The Book of Proverbs

The Prayer Ministry invites the congregation to read through the book of Proverbs during the month of May.  There are 31 days in the month of May and it just so happens that the book of Proverbs has 31 Chapters.

Please join us, as together, we ponder the words of wisdom found in this book. You will find advice for parents, children, and family relationships. This book is filled with advice on how to get along with others, as well as words of wisdom to help keep us out of trouble.
