Advent Season at FUMC in Horseheads

Photo Opportunity! 

Tis the season to try to get the perfect family photo! 

The church has put together a beautiful photo display for everyone to come in and use any time you wish.  You can find it in the Narthex (lobby) in the coat rack area.  We can’t wait to see your pictures!






Living Nativity

Living Nativity:  Our church family portrays the nativity scene outdoors on the front lawn during the evenings leading up to Christmas.  The time spent with friends and family in the Living Nativity is special, it also sends a wonderful message to the community about the true meaning of Christmas.  There will be a sign up in the entrance starting November 30th to fill time slots for the evenings of December 18th-24th.  We will need shepherds, an angel, Mary, Joseph and Wise Men. Please consider gathering some family and friends and spend an hour during this busy holiday season blessing our community.  If you have any questions, please reach out to Sandy or Shannon


Be a Christmas Angel

The Outreach Committee knows that Christmas is not always a time of Joy for everyone as some families struggle this time of year.  Our committee is looking for your monetary support allowing us to purchase department and grocery store gift cards to help families this Christmas Season.  Donations may be made by check (writing Christmas Tree Giving on the memo line) or by putting cash in an envelope with Christmas Tree Giving on the outside of the envelope.  Donations may be put in the collection plate or sent to the office.  Donations are due by Dec. 11th.

Thank you from the Outreach Committee
