Worship in January

December 28, 2019
Sunday, January 5—Lessons from Jonah #1: “When We Find Ourselves Running from God”
Scripture: Jonah 1
Have you ever felt God leading you to do something but you didn’t want to do it? Do you ever wonder, “What is God’s will for my life?”
Jonah ran away… what are we running away from?

Sunday, January 12—Lessons from Jonah #2: “Faith When God Seems Hidden”
Scripture: Jonah 2:1-9
How do we deal with things happening that we don’t understand? When have you realized that you aren’t in control? What do we do/lean on when we are in dire situations?

Sunday, January 19—Faith Mentors #1: “Noah—Making A Difference”
Scripture: Genesis 6:5-22

Sunday, January 26—Faith Mentors #2: “Ruth”
Scripture: The Book of Ruth

Feeding Others in Body as We Are Fed in Spirit

December 28, 2019

Starting January 5, every communion Sunday (typically the first Sunday of the month) we are asking you to bring a donation of food (or monetary donation) for the CHUM Food Shelf. That way when we come to the communion table to be fed spiritually, we are also feeding others who are physically hungry. The food shelf cart will be available for donations. If you make a financial donation, please note “food shelf” in the check memo or envelope, and make checks out to FUMC. Thank you for loving our neighbors in need.
