As we continue to step into the vision of TEAM-BASED ministry, we are calling forth those with a heart and a passion for Upwards Basketball.  We seek to develop a team of 10 people to grow as spiritual leaders and share in the responsibilities of Upwards Basketball management at MFUMC.  This amazing ministry currently serves over 700 children in our community and has a presence in 5 churches in Marysville.  We need a team to manage the Upwards Basketball activity in our building only.  With a dedicated team, responsibilities can be shared and the tasks can be divided equally depending on gifts and availability.  We have planned an INFORMATION SESSION on August 16th from 7:00-8:00 in Mills Lounge.  Don’t miss this opportunity to serve Jesus!  He’s calling you!  For inquiries, contact the Ministries Team at

August 20 3:00 pm -- 15050 Fladt Rd.

Marysville FUMC will be conducting an outdoor baptism service on Sunday afternoon August 20 at 3:00 pm.  If you are interested in being baptized by immersion, we invite you to a class on baptism which will be held on Sunday July 30 at 5:00 pm. Please contact Pastor Brown at aaron@marysvillefumc (740-412-2440) if you are interested in being a part of this baptism service.  

Someone asked, “Can I be rebaptized?”  In the UMC, we believe that baptism is a sacrament that is made sacred by God’s presence in the act of baptism. Therefore, we believe that regardless of when and where you were baptized, your baptism is valid.  Because your baptism is valid, there is never a need to do it over. Thus, there is no such thing as a rebaptism.  However, some people who were baptized as an infant have a sincere desire to affirm their commitment to Christ by a public display of baptism.   We are willing to do this for an individual with the understanding that it is not a rebaptism, but rather an affirmation of their first baptism.

HEALING AND PRAYER SEMINAR -- Sat. July 22 -- 8:30a to 12:30p; Fletcher, OH

This Holy Spirit filled workshop will be led by one of Pastor Aaron’s doctoral advisors, Dr. Luther Oconor.  Dr. Oconor is a powerful teacher and preacher who is an anointed prayer healer.  His research areas include the Holiness Movement, Pentecostalism and mission history.  He is particularly interested in the history of Methodism in the Philippines and Asia, the intersection between revivalism and missions, and the connections between Methodism and Pentecostalism.  He teaches in the areas of United Methodist History, Doctrine, and Polity at United Theological Seminary in Dayton.  This workshop is being offered at no charge by Fletcher United Methodist Church.  A free-will offering will be taken to thank Dr. Oconor for his ministry.  If you would like to join members of our prayer team for this seminar, please RSVP to Marge Bailey at (937) 645-9102.  We will meet at the church at 7:15 am.
