What’s Going on Around the Church?

Meals on wheels

September is our month to partner with Meals on Wheels- a ministry that delivers a hot, noon lunch to seniors around the community. For many Meals on Wheels clients this is the only hot meal they receive all day. Most routes serve 10 seniors, and can be delivered in one hour. Please sign up to deliver meals by contacting Carol Pearson at 334-320-6106

Funeral and Estate Planning Seminar. September 19, 2019 at 2:30pm. First United Methodist Church of Prattville. Did you know that for most Americans, a funeral is the third greatest expense, next to a home and automobile, and yet, the majority of Americans have made no plans whatsoever of this inevitable expenditure?  Most individuals leave these final plans with grieving family members who are not in the right state of mind to make, within a matter of minutes or hours, very important decisions that have great financial and spiritual implications. The Senior Adult Ministry of FUMC Prattville is hosting a free program concerning important tasks that we should all have in order. Speakers will be the Reverend Dr. Karl Stegall and Attorney Bob Burton. After a Q&A session, refreshments will be served. Pre-registration is encouraged by calling 334.365.5977. Located in Pratt Hall.100 E. 4th St.
