Announcing the Return of the Bell Choir!
The Bell Choir will resume practicing on Saturday, October 21st at 10 a.m. in the Sanctuary. We welcome all returning ringers and anyone new who would like to give the choir a try. During our October 21st rehearsal, we will be assigning parts, selecting music, and of course playing bells. We also will be looking at suggested dates for playing during the service. Please come join us! We always have a great time making music and giving praises to the Lord our God.

Faith and Formation lunch & a movie!
On Sunday October 22, Faith and Fellowship will host a viewing of Luther in commemoration of the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation that is being celebrated this year. The movie, Luther, was completed in the 1950s and was nominated for an academy award for Best Picture. If there had not been a Martin Luther, there would have never been a John Wesley. While United Methodists are not direct descendants of Luther, we are close cousins.

The main course will be roast turkey. Please bring either a side dish or a dessert. Bruce will give his recipe for roasting a turkey in 45 minutes but only to those who attend the lunch! RSVP to the church office or Bruce at bnjanacek@noctrl.edu.

You do not have to attend Faith and Fellowship nor do you have to know anything at all about the Reformation. Just come and enjoy the food and the movie. Feel free to join in at the last moment. Methodist dinners always seem to replicate the Feeding of the Five Thousand–there is always more food than we ever expect.

Fauré Requiem
Join us on Sunday, November 5 at 4:00 p.m. to hear “Requiem” by Gabriel Fauré. Come hear the First United Methodist Church Choir with harpist Nichole Luchs, violinist Andrea McStay, and cellist Jessica Ondracek. An offering will be taken.
