On June 11, we hosted a brunch to celebrate the FUMC members’ babies born in the last twelve months. In addition to the parents and babies, members from our Wrapped in Love knitting ministry, led by Debbie Rippetoe, attended our brunch to help greet the little ones and personally deliver the handmade blankets they made for the children. The beautiful blankets are a special way for our church to begin to show our love and care for these young disciples and their parents. Another meaningful touch to the day was the lovely floral arrangement that graced our buffet from Carol Ferguson’s memorial service the day prior. As a body of Christ, these special times allow us to celebrate the fullness of our life-long journeys with Christ. We are thrilled to be joining the parents in nurturing the faith of these sweet young disciples and we look forward to watching and encouraging their growth: Cameron Autry, Parker Beattie, Laine Cooke, Hayes Crisp, Ashalia Ezekiel, Jaya Ezekiel, Beckett Graves, Eli Graves, Griffin Gutierrez, Wilson Green, Ethan Rose, Parker Sayers, Henry Weaver, and Chapman Williams.
If you have had a new addition to your family or are expecting, our Children’s Ministry Director Lara Greene would love to connect with you. Also, contact Lara Greene if you would like to become involved in our Wrapped in Love baby blanket ministry by either making or delivering blankets.
