Irene Circle

Irene Circle

The Irene Circle is a group of women who gather each month to actively pursue mission related activities.  In the past, we have provided blankets to the Linus Project, assembled fruit baskets for shut-ins, and Easter Baskets for the children at the Dover Migrant Clinic.  We will resume our monthly meetings on August 14 at 7pm in the Good News Room.  Join us for mission work, devotion time and of course we wouldn’t be true Methodists if we didn’t have some refreshments.  For more information, contact Joyce at 685-0166.  Bring your calendars and ideas as we plan our events for 2017-18.

MOVE....The Faith Journey...For Youth!

posted Apr 8, 2017, 10:03 AM by First United Methodist Church of Seffner   [ updated Jul 25, 2017, 12:31 PM ]

A  new Sunday morning study for our youth about the life of Moses and more importantly a study that will help youth discover how their faith requires trust, perseverance, courage, obedience, and action.  During our time together we will also learn how to be open to God's moving and how to be willing to take a risk of faith in following God's lead through life.  And who knows, along the way we may even have our own “burning bush” or “Red Sea” experience!

All youth are invited to join Pastor Terry at 9:30AM starting Sunday, July 30th, as we begin this journey of faith together!

Our newly renovated nursery (Wiggle Room) for toddlers through age 5 is NOW OPEN and will be staffed by trained volunteers on an as needed basis each Sunday during our worship celebration. The Wiggle Room is located in the former Pastor’s Office and
MUST be accessed through the hall leading from the Narthex to the door to the Wiggle Room adjacent to the sanctuary. All other entrances to the church office suite will be locked and not accessible during the time children are in the Wiggle Room. Children will be signed in by parents when leaving their toddler/s for child care during worship. Each child will be identified with an adhesive tag on their back which will match the
number on the “parents claim stub” which must be presented when picking up their toddlers. Many thanks to the nursery task force for their dedication to making the Wiggle Room “toddler friendly” in every way….including….amazing Noah’s Ark wall decals, age appropriate
furniture, equipment, and toys! ALL of this has been made possible through a number of generous donations of time, money, and new toys and equipment.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE for their support in providing this important ministry to families with toddler-age
children who join us for worship!
