4-16-18 FUMC Updates

I was RICHLY blessed by our worship yesterday and you have NO IDEA how much I’m inspired by your energy and your passion!  Our worship series on RELENTLESS GRACE will continue for the next 4 weeks so get ready for a deep dive into Methodist theology! (If you missed the message, you can hear it on the website HERE.)
 
I have also been inspired by the Bible studies I’m teaching, both of which are VERY different! In Tuesday mornings at 11 am (Asbury Hall) we’re going verse by verse through the 40 most influential chapters of the Bible … on Thursday mornings at 8:45 am we’re meeting in the LOFT at Clara Ida Frances (Main/Elm) and doing more of a life application study.  I get so much out of these studies and I hope you will too!! (Tuesday: Genesis 2,Thursday: More Contentment)
 
DINNER and GAMES (??) ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT … 5:45 PM …Ken Atkins’ famous BBQ Chicken is on the menu for Wednesday night so don’t miss it!! But what would you think about staying for DOMINOES or some other kinds of games after dinner?  Several of the Sunday school classes were talking about this on Sunday … who knows what might develop!!?
 
THE SENIOR LUAU IS 3 WEEKS AWAY:  TUESDAY, May 8, 6:15 PM
Tina Saterwhite is, once again, excited to be coordinating the Senior Luau this year but this is an “all hands on deck” event!  Please email Tina HERE if you’d like to help, before, during or after or watch for sign up sheets soon.
 
WANTED: people who love to sing!
We’d love to expand our choir and we’d love YOUR voices!! The choir gets to go FIRST IN LINE for dinner on Wednesday nights as choir practice starts at 6:30 … contact Judy Beaty for details.
