Twin Ports United Methodist Ministries – Laity Sunday
Nine locations, one Methodist movement:
Asbury UMC, Faith UMC of Superior, First UMC, Forbes UMC, Hillside UMC, Hope UMC, Northwood UMC, Norton Park UMC, United Church of Two Harbors
Today, July 5, is a combined service of all nine United Methodist churches in the Twin Ports and is led completely by lay people from each congregation.
The service will be available at 10am. You can also look for links, on this page, on the homepage, and on our Facebook page.
First Family is temporarily being published as an online only newsletter until we are able to safely allow our staff to return to the office. While there are most certainly disadvantages to not being able to distribute a physical First Family, the advantages of having it available on our website are numerous. July’s edition joins years of archived newsletters. They are always there and they are searchable. This edition has had all the links activated—something we were never able to do with the print version.
Take look, share the link, bookmark the page, download to have on your computer (and you can still print it if you wish). If you, or someone you know, would like to have First Family delivered, please email email@example.com
During July we will continue to worship online on YouTube every Sunday morning at 10am. The service can be watched any time after 10am Sunday morning, but we encourage as many of us as possible to watch together at 10am as a community of faith.
• July 5 – All nine Twin Port UMC churches will worship together on this laity-led Sunday
• July 12 – Holy Communion. Have juice (or something to drink) and bread (or something to eat) available at worship time so we can join together for this sacred meal.
• July 19 – Rev. Charlotte Franz is preaching on awakening to the ways in which “the other” are treated, and learning the lessons taught by the brown-skinned Jesus.
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.
