2-25-20 FUMC Update

How can it be? Lent begins on Wednesday night with the beautiful ASH WEDNESDAY which reminds us of our mortality and sin. This sounds rather depressing; but in actuality, it’s one of the most thought-provoking services of the YEAR because it sets us on the road to the RESSURECTION! Come for dinner at 5:45 p.m. and then join us in the sanctuary at 6:30!
ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE:  2/26, 6:30 PM ~ Sanctuary (Dinner at 5:45 in FLC)
UNLOCKING THE CODE: A Study of the Apocalyptic  Messages in the Book of Revelation: Wednesday afternoons, March 4 – April 8 ~ The Throne Room of God, Armageddon, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, dragons and beast and scrolls. We’ll work through the most fascinating book of the Bible together!
PLANNING MEETING for BEAVER’S BEND CAMPING TRIP: Thursday, March 5, 9:30 a.m. at Annie Mae’s ~ If you’re still interested, please contact Jerry Calvert at 832-549-5042. 
IT’S GAME DAY!  Mexican Train Dominos. Thursday, March 5, 1-3 p.m. ~ Bring your friends for great snacks and great fun! Believe me when I tell you you do NOT have to know how to play!!
Do you have CAREGIVERS you could recommend? We often get calls from people needing some extra help caring for loved ones – respite care a few hours a week, evening care so sleep is possible, help with bathing or dressing, etc.  We certainly cannot ENDORSE in-home caregivers but we would love to pass on names for people who need some extra help.
Perkins Summit for Faith and Learning, March 26-28 ~ If you’re looking for some graduate-level education at remarkably affordable prices, check out SMU Perkins learning forum HERE.
THIS SUNDAY we start a new worship series for Lent and I hope you’ll make a commitment to include Sunday worship in your Lenten disciplines. We will be looking at some of the BACKGROUND texts that lead up to the EASTER story!  
“The angel [will show you] the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month.”(Rev.22:1-2)
