First UMC is offering a Virtual Learning and Discipleship program for K-5th graders enrolled in Carteret County Public Schools on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30am – 3:30pm on our campus at 900 Arendell St, Morehead City. We have a heart for children and their families to grow and thrive in these challenging days. Kingswood will provide a structured and supportive community for these children to work on their virtual schoolwork, engage in healthy socialization and exercise, and grow in their Christian Discipleship. Ministry volunteers will provide tutoring and support, chapel and bible study, and crafts and activities. Kingswood-FUMC will begin September 1st and run for 15 weeks this fall semester.
If you have questions, please contact Pastor Powell or Pastor Sarah at 252.726.7102.
For now, registration is limited to those kids and families who are members or active participants in our programming. FRIENDS, YOU HAVE UNTIL AUGUST 14TH TO REGISTER BEFORE WE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. SPOTS ARE LIMITED SO SIGN UP ASAP. REGISTRATION IS OPEN UNTIL WE ARE FULL.

Mason Starling has decided to hold a “school supply drive” so that we can get supplies for the children who desperately need them, and for the teachers so they have everything they will need. She is in touch with the guidance counselor at MHP to ensure the kids get the supplies.
She will be at Starling Marine on the SALES side everyday starting this Thursday thru Saturday from 11-1 to collect the items. If you would rather make a donation to the school you can make checks payable to Morehead City Primary School. Here is a list of items:
pencils, bookbags, crayola crayons, crayola markers, composition books, folders, loose leaf paper, binders, HAND SANITIZER, WIPES, expo markers, scissors, pens, tape, rulers, index cards, workbooks, notebooks, glue sticks, pencil pouches or pencil boxes, erasers, crayola colores pencils, highlighters, any cleaning supplies
July 27-July 31
Do good, Do no harm, Stay in Love with God. We are casting a new vision for VBS as of July 1st. We no longer feel it is a responsible decision to open up our campus to a large group of children and host an onsite VBS. We will still provide your family with resources including materials and videos which will be hand delivered to your home. This is a great opportunity for families to study and learn and grow together. All aboard!
Thursdays at 6:30
Join us at this outdoor gathering offering a service of praise, readings, prayer, fellowship and natural beauty. Meet at the Fort Macon State Park Beach Access. Bring your neighbors. Come as you are.

We need 10 volunteers to help clean out a yard for one of the families that was on our Project MHC job site list! The house is in Davis but we will be providing transportation to and from the church (using both our church vans and putting 5 youth in a van WITH MASKS on). Sign up now - if we have lots of interest, we will provide a second project and split into groups of no more than 10 youth and 2 adults. No cost, just come and help out your neighbors and be the hands and feet of Christ. SIGN UP DEADLINE IS THIS FRIDAY, JULY 24TH!

We welcome this summer two Duke Divinity School ministerial interns. The field education placement is a critical part of a Duke Divinity School student's formation for ministry service. The Duke Endowment underwrites the cost of these placements. The congregation offers housing and a small stipend for expenses.
We welcome back Troy Trombley (Michigan). Last summer Troy served with us and became a special part of the FUMC family. Troy returns with a year of schooling under his belt and...a new wife! Welcome Kelsey!
We also welcome Ian Goymer (Alabama). Ian will be entering Duke Divinity School this fall. He is a recent graduate of Birmingham Southern University. We are excited to share the summer with Troy, Kelsey and Ian. For most of June this will be accomplished virtually. On-site ministry begins in July.
