SUNDAYS and WORSHIP at FUMC WINNSBORO

 

Sermon Series Continues

God in the Movies
 
August 25, The Shack (the Trinity)
 
From a production company standpoint, making faith-based movies is a risky decision and this is PROBABLY why there aren’t many good Christian movies out there! But there are a lot of movies that are NOT “faith-based films” that cause us to think … to reflect … to digest some very Christians messages.
 
We sure hope you’ll join us on Sundays. You don’t have to have seen the film, we’ll be playing the key parts. Just come! 
 
The August 4 message of hope, endurance, freedom and peace revolved around The Shawshank Redemption. It was followed by an August 11 sermon on The DaVinci Code. The Shack garnered sermons on August 18, and we will delve further into this film for the August 25 message. 
 
Sermon on The Green Mile follows on September 1.
Wednesday Evening Deep Dive
August 21 and 28
 
There is probably NO question asked more in life than “What Happens When I Die?,” and while there is no exact answer to the question, there are plenty of scriptures that speak to both heaven and hell.
 
Come have dinner with us in the Family Life Center at 5:45 p.m., then join Pastor Debbie at 6:30 p.m. for a deep dive into the biblical foundation of the texts.
 
Handouts of the referenced scriptures will be available so don’t miss it!
 
 
 Wednesday Nights This Fall

September 19 ~ 30
 
  • Everything happens for a reason.
  • God helps those who help themselves.
  • God won’t give you more than you can handle.
  • God said it, I believe it, that settles it.
  • Love the sinner, hate the sin.
 
These are simple phrases. They sound Christian – like something you might find in the Bible, right? We’ve all heard these words, maybe we’ve said them and, after all, they do capture some element of truth! But sadly, in searching for the whole truth in common clichés, we find a much deeper message from the ministry of Jesus.
 
Join us for this fast-paced, video-driven conversation to make you think twice about common phrases meant to help but often hurt.
Upcoming Sermon Series
Starts Sunday, September 22
 
We’re all searching. Sometimes the search is easy: simply type a question and the answer pops up, but sometimes our questions are complicated, and the answers are difficult to see and harder to articulate.
 
How do we discover and examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life? Some powerful answers are contained in the Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs, and this fall, we’ll talk about it! Come join us as we explore not only what Christians believe, but also why it matters!
