Prayer Chain and Hospital Stays
FUMC has an e-mail prayer chain which we use to ask for prayers for various concerns and to share joys and praises. If you are not currently receiving e-mails for such concerns and would like to be added, please provide us with your e-mail address.
We receive a daily listing from Parrish Medical Center regarding members who have been admitted. Though, we don’t always receive all of them. If you are hospitalized, plan on being in the hopsital for any reason, or know of one of our members who is hospitalized, please contact the Church Office.

From our Pastor:
Dear Friends and Members of The First United Methodist Church of Titusville,
My wife Kaye and I would like to thank you for the generous love gifts that you have given to us during the month of May. We are grateful for the pictures, cards, creative artwork, quilt wall-hanging, prayer shawl, handmade wooden bowls, handmade clock, and the financial assistance for the move. We especially thank the children and youth for their presentations during the May 20th Sunday worship and that wonderful luncheon reception (not only for Kaye and me – but for the graduating seniors and the new members who just joined out church). We felt the loving presence of Jesus Christ through it all. You have certainly made our lives at lot easier. Your kindness and generosity are most appreciated.
However, your greatest gift comes to us time and time again - your friendship in Jesus that has sustained us all in prayer and worship not only on Sunday mornings but also in the wonderful times of community and international ministry and mission from downtown Titusville to across the earth. You cannot do better than that!
Even though my vow of iteration has called me to serve as the pastor of Keystone U.M. Church in Odessa (NW Tampa), Florida, my thoughts and prayers will be with you and your new Pastor Wayne Cook and his loving wife, Janet. I am glad that I was able to meet your incoming pastor and his wife on Tuesday, May 15. Kaye and I feel confident that Bishop Ken Carter and his cabinet have made the correct choice in sending a successor who will continue to love you as well as help you reach out in love to your very needy community around this church.
I therefore look forward to worshiping with you in heavenly places.
Thank you again. God bless you.
Fred and Kaye Ball
