 I would like to personally thank you for prayerfully considering the sponsorship of one of our amazing students. 

For over a decade now, wonderful relationships have been established between sponsors and the young persons they have sponsored.  The UMYF students and their chaperones are extremely excited about their mission trip to Lake Junaluska again this year!  We will once again be involved in helping at the Pigeon Community Center.

We will depart church on Sunday morning, July 16, and return on Saturday evening, July 22. It should prove to be challenging, productive, and fun for all!!! 

The minimum sponsorship is $50.  The full  sponsorship cost of a student is $350.

(NOTE:  Scholarship must be paid by July 2; checks are payable to the church.)

Thanks again!   



Look around during church and see who is missing. After Covid we have a lot of friends who have not returned to worship and church activities. Please give them a call and invite them to return.

If you request special prayer, PLEASE contact the Church Office (502-239-8405 or email FCUMC@ferncreekumc.org) to update or to remove someone from the list. Thank you.


The United Methodist Men (UMM) have been asked to form an “Emergency Response Team.”  The vision is for people who have a need to contact the team.  A team leader will then look over a list of people and resources and try to help anyone in need.  If you are someone who is willing to serve on this team, please contact Mike Brown.  We are looking for: people who have branch loppers, willingness to help, chainsaws, generators, etc.

Please pray about your willingness to help in this ministry. 


Stephen Ministry will meet the second Tuesday of each month at 1:30 pm

The Men’s Discipleship Group will meet on Thursday mornings at 8 AM in the Conference Room. Reading, listening to and studying God’s Word through scripture and prayer. Please join us on Thursday mornings to learn more about the Bible while enjoying Christian fellowship!

You can help by supplying water, batteries (all sizes), sternos, tents, gloves, $5 McDonald gift cards, socks, blankets, sleeping bags, hoodies, jeans. Drop items off in Darryl’s office or join the team in this vital outreach mission on Thursdays at 6 pm when the entire team heads out on the FCUMC bus.

Please drop off ANY Street Reach donations outside the double doors by the entrance driveway (across from the church kitchen in Fellowship Hall) AND, it’s very important you call the church office & let us know you are doing so! Otherwise your donations may “walk away”!  Thank you.  

Donate Now to some of Our Ministry Opportunities:

You may bring non-perishable food/snack items to stock the Baptist Health Palliative Care Pantry where families of palliative care patients may get something to eat while caring for loved ones, and Fern Creek/Highview United Ministries always needs non-perishable food items for the area ministry which assists our local community.  Donations to these groups may be placed in the black boxes under the coat rack in the Narthex.  You may recycle your aluminum cans and help the FC Women’s Club provide scholarships for FC High School students; place them in the small designated bin beside the garage.  Bring in shoes rubber-banded together and place them in the box outside room 113; WaterStep Shoes for Water sells the shoes and the funds are used to purchase well-drilling rigs, water filtration systems and supplies to bring clean water to those in need.
