“A Place To Belong”

WELCOME to the weekly email newsletter of the Evangelical United Methodist Church! Each week you will receive this email newsletter to invite you and/or your family and friends to Sunday morning worship, as well as any pertinent announcements for the week. At the bottom is the suggestion that you print out a copy and share it with a neighbor, relative or friend as an invitation to come to worship with you on Sunday!

THIS SUNDAY, January 31, 2021

9:00 a.m. – Sunday school

10:00 a.m. Worship: This Sunday, Pastor Richard continues a series of five messages on “Life’s Ultimate Questions”.

January 10 – “Does God Exist?”

January 17 – “What Happens after Death?”

January 24 – “Why Is There So Much Suffering in the World?”

January 31 – “How Can I Find Happiness?”

February 7 – “What is the Meaning of Life?”

  • Looking Ahead… this year’s Lenten study will be held at the church on Wednesday evenings during Lent.  We will be using Andy Stanley’s, “Why Easter Matters.”
  • Even with all the negative worries about the future of the church, people are still seeking a place to belong…  “Americans aren’t joining much of anything these days and church membership is not as compelling as it once was… In a world of untethered commitments and free-for-all content, the positive correlations of church membership should not be overlooked.  The form of membership may be undergoing change, but the function of generating a mutually committed group of people is still highly relevant to today’s Americans.”  (George Barna)
  • The next COMMUNITY MEAL will be Wednesday, February 3.  If you are willing/able to provide food items for the meal, please see the sign-up sheet in the rear of the sanctuary.  Invite your friends, family and neighbors to drive through and pick up their meal starting at 5:30 p.m.

Please print out a copy of the “Cheerful Earful” and give it to a neighbor, relative or friends and invite them to come with you this Sunday!
