Father Daughter Dinner & Dance
Our Dream Team hosted this years event on 2/11/18. We had a wonderful night and made memories that will last a lifetime. It was precious time between the fathers & daughters that in today’s busyness is sometimes forgotten. It is one night that we can stop everything else & focus on our relationships with our girls. It was fun for all ages and we were told that we need to do these more often & also to incorporate an event for mothers & sons. Check out the slide show below of some of the high lights of the event.
We packed up 21 youth & 5 Leaders and went to Pine Lake Camp for our annual Winter Camp Jan. 19 – 21st. It was awesome! We had the best weather we’ve ever had for camp. Our theme for the weekend was CONNECT. To connect with one another, God and all God created. We did just that through short devotionals & activities. After unpacking & settling in Friday night we had a night hike that involved some scaring, watched “Dennis The Menace” and climbed into bed about 2am. Saturday we spent most of the day outside. We had a hike on the lake and went to the Challenge Course and did a lot of climbing, team building and connecting. We had a few HOURS of scripture discovering, to find clues for the scavenger hunt. It was almost a tie between two teams, but one team didn’t have all their members there. But, everyone got a prize anyway and learned much more about scripture & team work. Saturday night’s movie was “Ring The Bell”, (which we highly recommend!) It’s not winter camp without the traditional Hide and Seek in the dark, which went on for more than 2 hours. Everyone had lots of fun, laughs and a few occasional scares. We had a couple firsts this year…. (1) 1st time NOT to have a fire in the fireplace because it was too warm and (2) most of the youth fell asleep before midnight. Sunday we packed up, had our breakfast and had worship in the cabin led by Mark Burkum playing guitar. What a way to worship our Lord & Savior. It was truly a wonderful weekend and we all left feeling more connected to God and one another. Thank you to everyone that helped support this event.

HELP HURRICANE VICTIMS
WITH LOVE FROM SOUTHWEST WISCONSIN
In the wake of Harvey and then Irma, we’ve all been saying the same thing, how can we help, what can I do? I feel helpless! People are suffering, people need us to help them. God spoke! We have a way to help! We’re able to do two things.
First, if you’d like to make a donation to help Hurricane victims, please make your checks payable to FUMC (Fennimore United Methodist Church) and note HURRICANE on the memo line. We will be sending the donations down to UMCOR and all funds will assist victims. Financial assistance is the fastest & easiest.
Secondly, As you may already know we put out a plea for anyone willing to donate specific supplies needed by the mission field in Texas. Thanks to the outpouring from the Fennimore & Surrounding communities we just about filled a semi trailer in just 3 days. Trucking of the donations was made possible by Fennimore’s own, Brett Klais (3:23 Express, LLC) and Klemm Tank Lines. Thanks for making it all possible!!!!! You are awesome!
This was a huge opportunity for us to be the hands and feet of Christ in a tangible way during one of the greatest natural disasters in recent history. Thanks again to all of you that assisted in making this possible. With special thanks to Brett Klais & Family for making the trip to deliver everything.
