Friday Fives

1.Preaching Series - This Sunday we will continue our series Giving It Up. There is a disciples that has developed around the season of Lent and giving things up. That for forty days we should deny ourselves of something - a luxury or an indulgence - in order to somehow draw closer to Jesus in his self-denial and suffering on our behalf. This series will help us look at a few things that we might give up permanently, specifically those actions and attitudes that are causing us issues in our relationship with God and with others. I hoe you will make plans to come and join us for this time of worship, fellowship, and transformation. For the sermon schedule, please click here and I hope to see you all there!

2. New Lenten Study Series - We have begun our study entitled The Way. This video series, by Adam Hamilton, will take us on a journey to the Holy Land as we explore the life and ministry of Jesus Christ from his baptism, to the temptations, to the heart of his ministry, including the people he loved, the parables he taught, the enemies he made, and the healing he brought. We will visit places like the Jordan River, the wilderness where Jesus was tempted, the ruins of Capernaum, the Sea of Galilee, and the city of Jerusalem. This study will help prepare you for Lent as we talk about the importance of spending time with God through prayer, the reading of Scripture, and a deeper understanding of our Messiah.

The class will last for three more weeks; March 13th, April 3rd and 10th. It will be offered twice a day at 10 A.M. and again at 7 P.M. in the Fellowship Hall and it is never too late to join. For more information and to register please click here.

3. Meal Packaging Event - We are booked and we have a date to package our meals with Stop Hunger Now. On Saturday, April 26th from 10 A.M. - 12:00 P.M. we will gather in the Fellowship Hall to package 13,876 meals. Thus far 61 people have volunteered for this event, so we still can still use about 14 more people to help us pull this off. There are stations that will be setup and we will need people tot stand as well as sit. So regardless of physical preference, there will be a place for you. If you would like to package food for this ministry please contact the church office to sign up, sign up at the Connection Station, 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 packaged 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.

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 on-site, we will leave the church at 7:00 A.M., 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. Six people have signed up so far. For more information, please click here.

5. S.O.S. Talent Show and Dessert Bar - Next Saturday, March 15th at 7 P.M. in the Fellowship Hall, our S.O.S. group will host an evening of great fun and delicious food. I hope you will mark your calendars to come and support our church as we gather together for a great evening of fellowship. Let's have a great turnout and I hope to see you there!

Have a great week and I will see you Sunday,
