Upcoming Events

Cooking Class, October 10

Time to harvest your tomatoes! If you've ever wanted to learn are curious about or just want some nice spicy tomato jam, come to our First Ever Cooking Class on Saturday, October 10 from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm in the church kitchen!

Ann Ficke will show you how to make and jar spicy tomato jam. You'll go home with the knowledge of how to jar, what equipment you need/don't need, and your own jar of Spicy Tomato Jam! It will be shelf stable: so no worrying about eating it right away. Perhaps you can envision yourself this December as you spread some on your Christmas toast. Sign up on the bulletin board across from the chapel.


Loving Our Neighbors

On March 24, 2015 the Administrative Council of FUMC wholeheartedly endorsed a statement by the Phoenixville Area Clergy Association to which many area groups as well as individuals are being invited to subscribe:

Phoenixville and the surrounding communities have a long history of welcoming people from many ethnic backgrounds and religious beliefs.  Over time, people of goodwill have created a place of true community which we are proud to call home.  Although we recognize with humility that our history is not without friction and sorrowful episodes, we publicly and jointly affirm that stronger tradition of openness.

In particular, we as faith communities, civic organizations, and individual citizens, consider it good at a time of growing divisiveness once again to declare our rejection of hate speech, scapegoating, and the attitudes that underlie them.

We hope that others with hearts equally open to their neighbors and the good of their communities will join us both in our rejection of all that is harmful and in our embrace of the basic human respect for others which builds and sustains peace.
