Let the Reading Begin


September 25, 2018

The Reading Buddies program has begun. I want to give a special thank you to those who signed up and read during the first week. It was fun to work with the little ones. Your efforts were greatly appreciated by the teachers and students.

This week we are taking a pause in our Bible Study to watch a movie, God’s Not Dead 3. I would like to encourage you to attend as this is a truly good movie that speaks to our modern-day world. The Study will resume next week as we start a new study called, “The Wesleyan Way.” The study was written by our conference bishop, Scott J. Jones. Before becoming a bishop, he had been a professor at Perkins School of Theology. The study looks at the foundation of a Wesleyan understanding of faith. The subtitle is, “A Faith That Matters.” This will be an 8-lesson study that will look at the way of salvation taught by the Bible, as understood by John Wesley and his brother Charles. They are the founders of our Methodist tradition. Come and join as together we examine our path to salvation.

This Sunday is a fifth Sunday, so we will be having a contemporary service with a meal to follow. Come and join the fellowship.

Calling all bar-b-quers!! The Last Sunday in October will be the day of the contest. If the weather co-operates, we will have the meal outside under the pavilion. Please contact the church office if you would like to participate or serve as a judge.

Remember to come and share the Lord’s Day together here at First United Methodist. If you are unable to attend, the service is streamed on our Facebook page, but we would love to see you here at service.

Gods blessings be with you.
