Pastor’s Pen – November 20, 2019

Hello Church Family,

November has been a great month at FUMC. We experienced a powerful All Saints Sunday and Commitment Sunday on both of our campuses. As of today, 126 individuals/families have made a commitment to God through FUMC for 2020. If you would like to make a commitment for 2020 please print off a commitment card and place it in the offering plate on Sunday.

Last Sunday we experienced a powerful confirmation worship service. I am thankful to Wyatt Robinson and Pastor Rachel for their leadership with the confirmation students. May God continue to guide and bless these teenagers.

This week around 30 servants are participating in a Family Promise hosting week. We continue to find ways to partner with others to help alleviate suffering in our community.

This Sunday we will experience another opportunity to make a tangible difference in the lives of children in Palm Beach County. Tom Lukasik from 4Kids will be speaking at all three worship services on the East Campus. 4Kids’ vision is for every child to have a home. I encourage you to join us on Sunday and invite someone who is interested in making a difference in the lives of local children.

Finally, on behalf of the Pastors and Staff, I wanted to take this opportunity to wish each of you and your families a blessed Thanksgiving. Everyday may we grow in the grace of Christ and find new ways to share His love.

 

 

In Christ,

Pastor Marcus

 

Pastor’s Pen – November 13, 2019

Last night as I was driving to a Mission/Outreach Team meeting, I was in awe of the towering steeple and cross on the East campus.

It was a powerful reminder of the greatness of God. We are called to reflect the love of Jesus in all the relationships in our lives. During the next 6 weeks there will be numerous opportunities for us to be a generous church. We will have opportunities to support:

Thank you in advance for making a difference in the greater Boca community and throughout the world!

This past Sunday we celebrated Commitment Sunday. I am happy to share that over 115 commitment cards for 2020 were collected. Here is a video that highlights our stewardship:

Commitment cards for 2020 are available online and can be turned in to the church office. Thank you for generously supporting the operating budget of FUMC. You help make ministry happen!

This Sunday we will celebrate 4 youth being confirmed at the 11:00 AM service on the East campus. Please join me in praying for these teenagers as they grow in the love and grace of Jesus Christ.

In God’s Amazing Grace,

Pastor Marcus
