Darlene Fish, Pastor of Visitation, will be starting a new grief recovery group later in October.  Grief Share is a 13-week program that covers such topics as The Journey of Grief, Guilt and Anger, Complicating Factors, Heaven, and more. Groups meet weekly to help each other face the challenges of grief and move toward rebuilding lives.
 
Be with others who understand your hurts, emotions, and experiences. Spend time with those who understand what you are going through.

9th ANNUAL PUMPKIN FESTIVAL
Saturday, October 26
11:00 am - 2:00 pm
 
For the past eight years, we have offered this fun-filled event at our church FREE of charge to all who come! We have been averaging around 600 people for the past three years. That tells me that God's hand is on us, because putting the festival on takes quite a bit of money. Through the generosity of so many of you, along with some businesses, we have been able to continue the festival.
 
In order for us to continue to grow and provide a fun and memorable day, we continue to depend on the generosity of many. Please remember that the Pumpkin Festival is presented by the First United Methodist Church of Lake Alfred. This is our way of reaching out to those in our community and surrounding communities. While you may not be able to physically help out with the festival, you have the opportunity to be a sponsor for the festival. We have five sponsorship levels: "Baby Boo" sponsor - $25.00; "Weebee" sponsor - $50.00; "Spooktacular" sponsor - $100.00; "Charlie Brown" sponsor - $250.00; and the "Great Pumpkin" sponsor - $500.00. ALL donations and sponsorships are appreciated! I know this year's festival will be a great success and I'm looking forward to a fantastic day on the 26th!  If you have any questions or would like to make a donation, please contact Patti Coe.
