3-24-22 FUMC Updates … Easter is only 22 days away!

This Sunday is the 4th Sunday of the 6 week season of Lent … which means Easter is right around the corner!  


“Chr-easters”, as I have heard people who only go to church on Christmas and Easter affectionately described, is EXACTLY why Christmas and Easter are so important! Yes, we as faithful Christians regularly come to church to worship God in a special way on these special “big” holidays, but we’re called to MAKE DISCIPLES FOR JESUS CHRIST, and where do we do this? On “big” Sundays like Christmas and Easter.  We not only invite people to come to sit with us and share in the celebration, but we also welcome people and make them feel they ARE part of our church family. 



Who is God putting on YOUR heart to invite to “come and see” what’s going on here at FUM?  Don’t worry, you just have to sprinkle the seed … then let GOD do the rest!


THANKS TO THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE OFFERED TO SERVE AS USHERS! We’d like to have a few more people so if you’re a friendly, welcoming person, please contact Carolyn Stewart HERE to get plugged in 1 or 2 Sundays a month! You’ll need to be at your door by 10:30 am to open doors and greet people, and stay a few minutes after church to be sure everything is in order.  


UPDATE on the CHALK CLASS: THURSDAY, MARCH 31, 6-7 PM, $10   you’ll be blown away by Stephanie Bright’s creativity (https://www.facebook.com/vintagechalkdiy) and she will be offering a Chalk Paint class, using stencils, so you can create your own project. All supplies will be furnished. Call Carla Chitsey, 903-975-2643, or email the church office FUMCwinnsboro@gmail.com to save your seat.


 NOW COLLECTING FILLED EASTER EGGS: we’re excited to be planning an EGG HUNT for our kids and the Beach Club kids on April 6th so help us plan for a super fun night and bring us your eggs now!  There will be boxes in the church lobbies, and also by the office door so let’s gather LOTS of eggs together!!
