Weekly Update

This Sunday: Hope for My Health

Do you ever worry about your health? Have you ever had a diagnoses that rocked your world?

One trap of faith is focusing so much on death and resurrection that we lose sight of God’s gift in the present: our amazing bodies that we use to listen to music, look at art, and enjoy one another’s company. The Bible says God “knit us together in our mother’s womb.” That means that God doesn’t just care for our “soul,” but for our bodies, too– and he wants the best for EVERY part of us! It also means God cares deeply when we face sickness and fears for our health.

Join us this Sunday to hear what the Bible has to say about our health. Come and be inspired by your physical presence in the house of God!

Baptisms, New Members, and Graduates!

We also have a special treat on Sunday… It’s a new member Sunday complete with multiple baptisms! Come celebrate as newcomers to our church affirm their faith in God. Just as important, join in the response as we promise to include them fully in our midst and to care for them. It will be a truly special moment!

We’ll also recognize another significant life moment… graduates! We will invite our grads forward and pray a prayer of blessing on them. Don’t miss it!

Wonderful Wednesday/Third Service
We will start our first Wonderful Wednesday & Third Service on May 24th at 6pm in Friendship Place. We are asking everyone to bring a main course and either a side or dessert to share with the group. Drinks, plates, cups & plastic-ware will be provided by the Health & Hospitality Team. You can stay for Third Service, starting at 6:15pm in the same room. The speaker on May 24th will be Amy Slater. Invite a friend to come with you for the food!, fun!, fellowship!, and faith!

Health Care Donations
Thank you for your contributions to the UMCOR Health kits. We are still in need of combs longer than 6 inches and dollar donations to go along with the Health Kits.
