Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series - This week we will continue our new preaching series on a few of the pivotal sayings of Christ.  This week we will examine the saying, “I Am the Way, the Truth, and The Life,” as we ask the questions, what is Christ the way towards, what truth is He claiming to be, and what life is He calling us towards.  Bring a friend and I hope to see you all there!

2. Spaghetti Dinner - Tomorrow, Saturday, May 14th from 3-7pm our Boy Scout Troop is having their Spaghetti Dinner here at the church.  The cost is $5 a person and tickets are available at the door.  You can either come and dine in the Fellowship Hall or you can come and get it to go.  Either way I am sure it will be delicious!

 Please make plans to come out and support our troop and get some good food to boot!

3. GoodSearch - Here's a new easy way to raise money for our church. Just start using Yahoo! powered as your search engine and they'll donate about a penny to our church every time you do a search!

In addition, do all of your shopping through their online shopping mall,, where you can shop at more than 2,000 top online retailers and a percentage of your purchases will go to the church. You pay the same price as you normally would, but a donation goes to us!

Here's the web site — You can also read about GoodSearch in the NY Times, Oprah Magazine, CNN, ABC News and the Wall Street Journal.

And if you download the GoodSearch – Druid Hills United Methodist Church toolbar, our church will earn money every time you shop and search online - even if you forget to go to GoodShop or GoodSearch first! Add the Druid Hills United Methodist Church toolbar at

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!
