Dinner Church

Dinner Church is a launch of a fresh expression at Coral Sunset Elementary School. We meet on the second Sunday* of the month at 5:00 PM for a free meal, extra homework help, a small Bible teaching, and for a community gathering for the whole family. We want to be a place for families surrounding Coral Sunset Elementary to be able to come and not only get fed and receive homework help, but to build community relationships. If you have any questions Please contact Pastor Madeline at 561-395-1244.

*Dinner Church is Held Every 2nd Sunday beginning September 2021! (Dinner Church is not meeting in July but will meet on August 15, 2021. ) 

If you are a part of our First United Methodist Church community and would like to help serve at Dinner Church we would love it. There are opportunities with food prep, set-up, clean-up, greeting, child-care, and more! Please call the church office at 561-395-1244 to find out how you can help.

Sunday Night (During the School Year)

 

Sunday evenings (during the school year) students have a fun and safe place to hang out, get to know other believers their age, and to grow in their faith. The night kicks off with a time of hang-out either in our gym, playing some crazy game, or in our youth room equipped with a pool table, ping pong, video games, and more. After hang-out time and snacks, the students gather in our living room style space to study God’s word and learn to apply it to their lives.

Middle & High School, 6th-12th Grade 4pm-6pm

Relay

Our group had a great time competition in the group relay competition tonight. Our of about 20 groups we came in second place. Of course our super competitive students were disappointed to not take first but we were proud and they had fun. Many students are already saying they aren’t ready to leave and are having a great time!

 

Worship Experience 

Tonight after worship and teaching we were able to participate in a more personal, individual time for God to speak and our students were receptive to God speaking. The first station they were asked to highlight a verse in Romans that stood out to them on a giant plexiglass of the entire book. The second station they were asked to circle up in small groups to pray for one another. Some of our students took time to share with one another what their friendships and this trip has meant to them. The third station they were given an opportunity to write a name of someone that needs to know God on a big wall. The final station they were able to write their struggles with the flesh (things of this world) on a board with chalk and then write what that would look like if the Holy Spirit helped them with their struggle.

We had some awesome opportunity to spend quality time sharing and praying for one another. During small group we had a great conversation about relationships and how God gave us each other to love, support, and encourage one another in life. We talked about the importance of good, quality friends and how we can experience and share God’s love with others through these friends.

There are several students who are experiencing the love of God for either the first time or first time in a long time and it has been amazing to watch. These students are brutally honest and authentic and God has been speaking to them all in individual ways. Our conversations and questions have been real and God is moving in their lives.

We are looking forward to being able to see downtown Nashville tomorrow and to continue to experience God’s love for each of us.

Basketball Champs

Our students demonstrated their athletic talent once again with winning the basketball tournament! They represented us well not only with their skills but their sportsmanship as well. We had to compete against ourselves in the first round before playing against the other churches and finally the camp staff for the championship.

Work Day 3

We had our final day of work and were able to get a lot of great work accomplished today. Our group worked hard to finish painting the doors and to paint the walls around the windows. Through out the day our students would take breaks to play with the kids and just love on them.

When it was time to leave it was a tough goodbye for not only the kids but out students too. One of the little kids said as we were leaving “Mitchell you forgot something” and after a “what” the little kid said “to give me a hug.” It was amazing watching our students bond with these little kids in just a fed short days.

We are extremely proud of how hard our students have worked to serve this apartment complex and the kids!
