Greeters are needed to welcome worshipers at each of our three entrances—the main front door, the east parking lot (larger one) door, and the west parking lot door. Individuals, families, and friends are all encouraged to volunteer for a Sunday or two. Please sign up in the Narthex using the sign-up sheets, call Marlys Wolden (728-3024), or contact Mike Donahue (879-3456 email@example.com) to sign up or with your questions.
We are looking for a few more people to help with projection during the summer worship services. Projectionists are scheduled on a rotation basis, so each person covers about 2-3 services during the summer. Both adults and teens can help with this important worship task. If you’re interested, please contact Velda Bell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 218-727-5021.
Training will be provided.

Ruby’s Pantry-Coppertop has been distributing food at First United Methodist, the Coppertop Church at 230 East Skyline Parkway, on the third Thursday of every month since 2010. Ruby’s Pantry-Coppertop is a community partner of Ruby’s Pantry. There are no income guidelines and anyone may participate.
For a $20 donation (cash only; checks and EBT cards cannot be accepted), participants receive approximately two large boxes of food. Please bring your own boxes — laundry baskets work very well.
Contents of a share vary depending upon what food is available to Ruby’s Pantry at the time; some typical items are listed below. We often post information about food items at facebook.com/rubyspantrycoppertop on distribution day.
Food distribution at FUMC is on the third Thursday of every month, with registration from 4 to 6:30pm and distribution beginning at about 5:15 and continuing until the distribution ends at about 6:45pm.
Give an hour or more, anytime between 3 and 8 pm. Choose a task: welcome, traffic control, unloading truck, food repackaging, food distribution, carry-out helper, box recycling, clean-up. It’s easy and fun!
Volunteers are always welcome. If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, please call First Methodist Church at 727-5021.
