Westminster UMC Advent Calendar Day One: Almost Christmas: A Wesleyan Advent Experience Prayer: May we experience what it is to be, not almost only; but altogether Christian; being justified freely by God’s grace, through the redemption that is in Jesus; knowing we have peace with God through Jesus Christ; rejoicing in hope of the glory of God; and having the love of God shed abroad in our hearts, by the Holy Ghost unto us. Amen” Question to ponder: Do I so far practice, justice, mercy and truth as even the world requires?
Calendar challenge Thursday - Thanksgiving with Family Friday - Shop Black Friday Sales Saturday - Shop Local Small Business Sunday - Come to Church Sunday Monday - Shop Cyber Monday ...
Don't forget! Drop off day at WUMC from 9 to noon. Paper shredder! Rescus miasion for items you no longer need, and a dumpster for items that dont work in the other two.
Friends, do you live life with God's Finale In Sight? Or do live life with God's Finale Insight? Join us tomorrow as we discuss the difference of the space between these two realities.
Save the date! And get to see a small glimpse of the work God is doing in this ministry. You won’t be sorry you took the 90 minutes to be there! 💕
Yep... Online calendar ... On the website ... In the Herald ... In the eherald ... And probably mentioned on Sunday morning.
Interesting article. Much of what this article details that millennials are said to be facing are what preceding generations had also struggled with. Has technology inhibited community building or opened other alternative avenues to seek community.
We are the hands and feet of Jesus, and that happens every day of the week-not just on Sunday morning! Happy reading!
Thanks Stephany Erin Pond for thr photo.
From Worship to Discipleship - Join us at 7pm on Wednesday Jul 17th in the Martha Manihan room at church as we delve more into Luke 10:25-37: The Good Samaritan. We will connect the theme from Sunday's worship on July 14th to a small group experience where we hope to become more fully formed disciples of Jesus Christ. As you prepare for our gathering please share here who is beaten up on dangerous roads near us and left to die? Or who is being chewed up and spit out by the culture, or individuals, or groups or institutions where we are?

Rev. Dr. Malcolm Stranathan 8:30 a.m.- Traditional Worship 9:45 a.m. - Eucharist Service / Christian Education Hour 11:00 a.m. - Contemporary Worship “I was glad when they said to me, let us go to the house of the Lord.”

Jesus called out to some potential students, "Follow me!" And they dropped what they were doing and followed him everywhere. As Jesus' followers today, in this world of distractions and competing allegiances where is Jesus calling you to go and how well are you following him?
