Pastor’s Pen – December 4, 2019

Hello Church Family,

Thank you for your extra generosity as we begin the season of Advent. Twenty -five (25) gift tags have been claimed for the Spirit of Giving Gift drive, over 50 ornament tags were claimed to support foster children with Christmas gifts through 4Kids, and we learned about the “re-gifting” needs for the AACY Christmas Shop later this month. Please bring all items for these collections to any worship service at FUMC this Sunday.

Christmas Concert

Friday, Dec. 6th and Sunday, Dec 8th at 7:00 PM in the East Campus Sanctuary – Check out our “Facebook event” and please share to invite your friends and neighbors!

This week is our annual Christmas concert! We are blessed by the amazing musical talent in our community. This year’s Christmas concert under the leadership of our Director of Music, Arlene Sparks, will be this Friday and Sunday at 7:00 PM in the East campus Sanctuary. Please invite your family and friends to experience the joy of the Advent/Christmas season. There is no charge for the concert, but a love offering will be collected so we can continue to offer special music opportunities for the community. Childcare will be available both nights.

This Sunday is the second Sunday of Advent and the theme is “Peace.” On the East Campus, I will be focusing on how we experience inner peace as we surrender more of our lives to God. Our Biblical example is Joseph and his encounter with the angel in Matthew 1:18-25.

Hope to see you Friday night at the Christmas concert!

In God’s Amazing Grace,

Pastor Marcus
