6-24-19 FUMC Update

What an amazing worship we had on Sunday! Sooooooo much energy from the choir and it was contagious throughout the whole congregation! As I mentioned last week, our choir members come every Wednesday night and every Sunday morning regardless of who the pastor is, who the music director is, how many people are in worship or not. Every week they work hard to make worship “worshipful” and I’m grateful to them all! Also, a BIG thanks to Danny McMahon for stepping in as our temporary leader and bringing new songs and teaching new music. We have begun the process to find a new Music Minister so please be prayerful about this!
 
Another BIG thanks to the 19 people who have given generously to the fund that will pay the $5000 deductible for the roof and the $5000 for the choir room! Our property is the biggest asset this church owns (and it’s debt free!), so to be able to obtain a brand new roof ($154,000) and a completely renovated choir room ($60,000) for only $10,000 is AMAZING!! Yes, we pay substantial premiums for insurance, but when the unexpected storms, accidents, etc. happen, we’re ready!
 
Don’t miss the 5th SUNDAY ALL CHURCH GATHERING this Sunday:  June 30, 9:30 a.m., Wesley Hall ~ We’re so excited to welcome ALL Sunday school classes and ALL people in the church and community to come for coffee and donuts to meet Lorri Allen … reporter, anchor and producer (CBS 19, Tyler) radio host, Professor of Communication at UT Tyler, and Christian author. With a Master’s Degree from the Walter Cronkite school of Journalism, Lorri brings amazing stories, wit, and Christian HOPE to her inspiring message so join us for a focus on GOOD NEWS!
 
WHAT’S HAPPENING AROUND THE CHURCH?  Here’s the link to the CALENDAR . If you’re planning ahead, be sure to SAVE THIS DATE … Tuesday, July 16, 5:45 pm, UMW 150th Birthday Celebration! A great meal, amazing entertainment (Cross Strings Bluegrass Band), and of course, cake and ice cream! All money raised will go to local missions and we’ll have more details as we get closer.
 
Hope to see you Sunday as our UPSIDE-DOWN worship series continues. This week with a look at the 4th Beatitude, Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Matthew 5:6
