What a joy it was to worship in-person with you yesterday! After six long months of relying solely on technology and the Holy Spirit to unite the church, getting to worship with you in person energized me and left me with a spring in my step. I want to lift up a special thank you to our team of coordinators, technicians, and volunteers who set us up and kept us safe, and an extra-special thank you to God for providing the best possible weather. Whether you worshipped with us in-person or via the livestream, it was a great day for our church!
We’ll continue our outdoor worship next Sunday while we also continue our current sermon series, “Put Down Your Phone, And Other Steps For Spiritual Health.” If you haven’t already, please take a moment to listen to our first two messages, “Put Down Your Phone” and “Buy A Plant.” These messages have pithy labels but serious assertions — many of us have deeply ingrained practices that seriously hinder our spiritual growth. If we want to experience change, we need to make some changes, and these messages help you do that in small, meaningful ways.
Finally, before you close this email, please go to our website to register to attend our Grow Bible Study this Wednesday. Grow is a brand-new offering that provides both online and in-person avenues to engage in a live Bible teaching as well as some impactful, relevant discussion led by an FUMCFW pastor. I’m so pleased with how week one went, and I can’t wait to see some more of you this Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
God bless y’all!
