Dear <<First Name>>,
Welcome to this week’s edition of THE BEACON !
Wednesday Evening Study – A La Carte!!
We are meeting every Wednesday evening during the summer. But instead of a book or a portion of the Bible, we have a variety of sub-topics. Each week is a stand-alone topic - so you can drop in any time you are interested in a topic (and will not have missed anything from previous weeks). See the schedule of topics below. So – come join us! Wednesdays 7 - 8 PM through Zoom:

Want a battery operated all-terrain wheel chair?
Don Lowe, a long-time member of First United Methodist Church, enjoyed a Falcon All-Terrain battery-operated wheelchair during his last few months. He loved getting outdoors and engaging with friends and neighbors outside. The chair is easy to operate, comfortable to use, and always lifted Don’s spirits. That chair needs a new home – a place where someone wants to get their loved one out and about with ease. Please read the attached for the specifics.
