Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series - Do you ever feel like the world is weighing heavy upon your shoulders? Like your spirit is being weighed down so strong that you cannot move? This Sunday we are continuing our preaching series entitled, Traveling Light, where we are looking at the importance of releasing ourselves from the weight of feelings like want, guilt, shame, grief, and doubt, among others. Check out our church website for sermon titles by clicking here. I hope you will make plans to join us each week as we seek to better understand the help God is eager and willing to offer to each and every one of us.

2. Bill Pitts Memorial Service - Tomorrow, Saturday, September 8th, at 11am, we will gather in the Sanctuary to celebrate the life of our friend and brother, Bill Pitts. I want to extend an invitation to all of you to come and gather as we shower Doris and her family with our love and concern. There will be a reception to follow in the Fellowship Hall that you are invited to as well. Please spread the word as you encounter each other in the community. I look forward to seeing all of you there!

3. Lay Servant - Do you have the gifts to become a Certified Lay Servant? Are you interested in finding out? On Saturday October 27, 2012 and Saturday, November 3, 2012 (both days required), from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, at the First United Methodist Church of Eustis, a training will be offered to help you answer those questions. The Lay Servant Ministries Basic Course focuses on the many ways lay servants are called to be in ministry through such things as leading, teaching, serving, proclaiming the gospel, disciple-making, and personal spiritual formation. The purpose of lay servant ministries as it relates to caring, leading and communicating will be shared with participants as they are encouraged to recognize and use their spiritual gifts. For more information, please contact the church office, 629-5688 or email us by clicking here.

4. Historian Needed - If you are interested and passionate about recording the important events in the life our church, we have an opportunity for you! We are in need of a church historian to help chronicle the important events in our history. It does not require significant time, just a passion for the mission. If you are interested please see me and we will talk.

5. Sound Booth - We are in need of a few volunteers to help out in the sound booth on Sunday mornings. If you are interested in volunteering to help us run this vital part of worship, please let us know with by calling the church office, 629-5688, emailing the office, by clicking here, or signing up at the Connection Station. You do not need to have any prior knowledge of sound equipment, we will train you. It is not very difficult at all, we just need someone willing to lend their talents. Thanks!

Have a great weekend and I will see you Sunday!
