June 20-24


All rising high school students are invited to join us on our mission trip this summer. We will leave Monday, June 20 and return on the 24th. The students will serve in James Island, South Carolina and stay at Bethany UMC, where they will be assisting Habitat for Humanity in housing repairs. 


No experience necessary!


This promises to be a fun trip where students will learn a lot as they act as the hands and feet of Jesus. The cost of the trip is $80, but money should never keep any student from participating in our trips. Scholarships are available. Reach out to Tiler if you have any questions or need scholarship assistance (tilerbland@fumcwilson.org.)


Please register by June 6!

Registration will be open for Vacation Bible School this Thursday! This year's theme is Food Truck Party! We can't wait for your children to get On a Roll with God. You may sign up now by clicking the button below. There's a menu button on the welcome page that will link you to our registration.


We also need volunteers! VBS is a wonderful  outreach to our church and local community that ministers to over 100 children each year, but we cannot do it without your help! Please consider volunteering (for any amount of time - it doesn't have to be the whole week if you're only available one day!) You can also register to volunteer by clicking the button below.


Please contact Vickie Franks (vickiebfranks@fumcwilson.org) if you have any questions.
