1.Preaching Series - This Sunday, February 9th, we will continue our preaching series based upon the hope we have as Christians and disciples of Jesus Christ. This series is based upon the writings of N.T. Wright and his book, Surprised by Hope. Over these next several weeks we will look to the hope we have for this world, the Resurrection, Heaven, Jesus' second coming, salvation, and the Church. I hope you will come, open your mind to the power of the Holy Spirit, and hear what is laid upon your heart. Bring a friend and join us for time of worship, celebration, and hope. For the sermon schedule, please click here. I hope to see you all there!
2. Meal Packaging Event - I have contacted Stop Hunger Now and we are looking at a late April time frame to package the meals we will purchase as a response to our Advent Conspiracy Campaign. We need 50-75 people to be willing to volunteer about two hours of their time on a Saturday morning to pull this off. Once we have enough people I will let them know and they can finalize our date and time. If you would like to package food for this ministry please contact the church office to sign up, or you can click here to sign up on the website. Debbie, the boys, and I were able to be a part of the Annual Conference Event last year that packed food and it was a great time! I hope you will make plans to be a part of this very special and important ministry event. If you have any questions let us know.
3. Spaghetti Dinner - We are hosting a spaghetti dinner fundraiser for the church this month. It will be consist of spaghetti with
meatballs, salad, bread, dessert and beverage. This fundraiser will help us continue to care for our campus and fund the ministries of this congregation. The date will be,
Friday, February 28th from 4:30 to 7 pm. The cost is $7 for adults,
$4 for children. To-go orders are also available. You can purchase tickets in advance
or at the door. This is sure to be a great time of
fun, fellowship, and food. I hope you all can make it!
4. Children's Home - On Saturday, March 15th, our
District has been invited to the Annual Day Apart at the Florida United
Methodist Children's Home. This is our opportunity to tour the campus,
speak to the volunteers, and see how our financial and prayerful support
is being utilized. The day will begin at 9am and will conclude with
lunch on the campus at noon. I highly encourage anyone who is interested
to attend. If you would like to carpool, please contact the church
office and let us know so we can coordinate it. For more information,

5. Scout Sunday - This Sunday we are observing Scout Sunday. We will have members from our Boy Scout Troop and Cub Scout Pack, as well as their leaders and families in worship with us this week. I encourage you come on out and show your support, through your attendance and a kind word to the boys and young men, as we celebrate how important they are to us.
Have a great week and I will see you Sunday!
