The CDC have recommended Tuesday, July 27th, that fully vaccinated people should return to wearing masks indoors to help prevent the spreading of the highly contagious Delta variant.
GFUMC Board of Trustees still have in place the recommendations of the Arkansas Conference of the UMC that individuals who are NOT vaccinated should wear masks for in-person worship and social distance by a minimum of 6 ft. Vaccinated folks are encouraged but not required to wear a mask and are asked to social distance by a minimum of 3 ft.
We will continue to keep a record of attendees should there be a Covid outbreak for ADH tracking purposes.
The Board of Trustees takes your health and safety very seriously. They will continue to monitor the situation. If you have any questions, please contact me via my cell @ 501.288.2169.
Looking forward to seeing everyone this SONday!

I want to thank each of you for your continued support of our church and your special contributions dedicated for repairs and maintenance. We have been able to get numerous repairs done externally and internally. As of the past SONday’s Administrative Council meeting, our new top priority is addressing the south wall of the Fellowship Hall building.
Our goal is to eliminate water from seeping into the basement and breeding mold and mildew. The plan is to remove the vegetation between the sidewalk and the building. This area will be excavated by three and a half inches. Then a new moisture barrier will be installed, and concrete will be poured in that space. This addition of concrete will be designed to flow the water away from the building. Our goal for this project is very simple. It is to make this space safe for usage again.
I do not know how soon we will be reusing these rooms (outside of youth on Wednesday), but we prepare in faith believing God is going to fill them once again with children, youth, and adults who are hungering to grow through Christian education. I am excited to share that last week, we had fifteen youth help us kick off our 2021-2022 youth program.
Speaking of the youth, on Saturday – September 25th – the youth are going to do a local mission. That mission will be to paint the Farewell General Store. We are going to assemble at the church at 1 pm. Ms. Tee is providing a paint spray rig to help with the project. While this initially started as a youth event, Becky and Micah want to invite the church family to join in. This gives the youth a chance to meet other church family in hopes that their connection to GFUMC will become even stronger. I hope each of you will make it a priority to participate.
One last bit of information I would like to share. On December 3rd – 5th, GFUMC has a planned mission trip for the church. Our travels will carry us to Mount Eagle Christian Center. It is less than two hours drive. We can take the church vans or folks can drive their personal vehicles. Our time there will be centered on fellowship, good food, a little labor, and spiritual renewal. If you are interested in participating in this mission trip, please contact the church office. The accommodations and scenery of this camp are truly amazing.
Jeremiah 31:25 reads, “I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.” Our church mission trip is designed to put in a place and space to allow the Spirit to do just that… refresh us and renew our relationships with one another.
I pray this for each of you… ‘May the LORD bless you and keep you; may the LORD cause His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; may the LORD lift up His countenance toward you and give you peace.’ Have a blessed week!
A little girl asked her mother, "Can I go outside and play with the boys?"
Her mother replied, "No, you can't play with the boys, they're too rough."
The little girl thought about it for a few moments and asked, "If I find a smooth one, can I play with him?"
