12-29-21 FUMC Updates … KiDs Beach Club is coming!

Last Sunday’s worship was so much fun, and I want to thank those of you who were there for embracing the message of Handel’s Messiah! I have wanted to preach a message about the Biblical foundation of that magnificent oratorio for a long time and it was fun singing a few minutes of the HALLELUIAH CHORUS with you at the end! (Watch the service on FACEBOOK here.)

STARTING FEBRUARY 1st KiDs BEACH CLUBPlease join us for a light lunch after church on Sunday, January 9th, and start praying now! For 2 years we have been hoping to get this exciting ministry started in our Intermediate school and finally, it’s time!  I have seen how this ministry changes the lives of kids, especially those who do not have a church home, and this is an ALL HANDS ON DECK ministry with lots of opportunities to serve! I’ve attached some very basic information on WHAT KiDs Beach Club is and where we need your help!  Please plan to stay for lunch after church on January 9th so you can hear what our church focus is going to be about in the 1st few months of the new year!

PLEASE HELP ME WELCOME HEATHER WARREN as our NEW COMMUNICATIONS AND CARE COORDINATOR!  After many interviews and a long search, God has sent Heather to Winnsboro and to FUMC Winnsboro!  Heather has held this position for the last 5 years at Melissa FUMC but she and her husband have just bought land and a house here in Winnsboro!  She will be transitioning into a 25 hour/week role and I can’t wait for you to get to know her.  Check out her brief bio on our website.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT MEALS CONTINUE … 12/29, 6 PM … homemade stew!

THE CRAFTERS NEED YOUR HELP! You do not have to be an artist to be a crafter! If you can slap paint on a board, squeeze the trigger on a glue gun or tie a bow they can use your help. The crafters meet once a week on Tuesday mornings for fun and fellowship and a little bit of crafting. They will be trying some new things this year and have different people coming to teach new craft ideas so please join in! If you need more info, please call Carla Chitsey, 903-347-012.

BROTHER HENRY’S MONTHLY BIBLE STUDY: Tuesday, January 18, 10-11 am, Wesley Hall, Family Ties … THE WORD OF GOD … see attached questions.

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY: Wednesday mornings starting January 19, 9 – 11 a.m., Asbury Hall.   Join Linda Suche & others for this 7-session study on the Prophet Elijah from best-selling author Priscilla Shirer. “Journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine, and how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.”

This Sunday we end our worship series on the SONGS OF CHRISTMAS when Mary & Joseph bring baby Jesus to the temple and experience a marvelous encounter with SIMEON!
