Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series - This week we will begin a new preaching series on a few of the pivotal sayings of Christ.  Over the next three weeks we will look at the sayings of, “I Am the vine and you are the branches,” “I Am the Way, the Truth, and The Life,” and “I will never leave you” as we seek to unpack the importance and meanings of these words.  Bring a friend and I hope to see you all there!

2. Thank You! - I want to extend my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all of you for your support and prayers as my family has dealt with the loss of Debbie's dad, Rob Keller.  You have all be an incredible source of strength, comfort, and love.  You have been the heart of Christ for us in our time of need.  For that we are overwhelmingly grateful.  From the bottom of our hearts thank you and God bless you!

3. Mayflower Mischeif - Mark your calendars for Friday, May 13th at 5:30 pm. There will be a covered dish dinner with a variety show to follow in Fellowship Hall. This event is to help fund the new flooring in Fellowship Hall. This is a DONATIONS ONLY event, so dig down deep in your pockets so we can replace the flooring. It is going to be an evening of great food & fun, so please plan to join us & don’t forget to bring a covered dish of your choice. If you would like to be part of the variety show, please contact the Church Office at 629-5688.  See you there!

4. Got Grandkids? – The Florida United Methodist Youth Camp is hosting their annual Grandparents and Me Summer Camp this year on June 27-30 and July 18-21, at the Warren Willis Youth camp in Leesburg.  The theme this year is "Got Spirit?  WE DO!"  If you have grandkids and are looking for a fun and exciting way to spend some time together I encourage you to consider this.  You can find out more information by stopping by the office to pick up a registration form, visiting them online at, emailing Lori at, or calling Lori at 352-787-0313.

5. Salty Service - A few months back I asked everyone to consider joining up together in groups to venture out and visit some of the residents in the many assisted living and rehab facilities around our church. There are many people there that get no visitors, and we are so good with fellowship, I see a need and a spiritual gift that can easily be paired up. I wanted to give everyone an update on how this budding ministry is progressing. We have three members that have reached out and began weekly visits to three different facilities. We also have a group of people that have formed to begin visits with a fifth facility. We have several contacts at area facilities, all we need is volunteers. Many people make light work. If you are willing to spend just a few hours a month visiting with people and sharing the love of Christ please contact the office and we can help you get connected. Please consider reaching out to the people in our area and let them know we care and in the name of Jesus Christ that they are loved.

Have an incredible weekend and see you Sunday!
