We ask You to bless the gifts and ministries that we give.
We ask that that You help grow the trust in us, that we might follow without looking back and that we might leave behind more of our old lives to experience more deeply new life in You.
Help us to leave our nets on the shore, leave those things that seemed essential before we heard the call, so that we might travel the road You have put before us.
In the name of Christ who goes before us and beside us, we pray. Amen.
from Mark 1:14-20
Last Monday, on Martin Luther King Jr Day, we stuffed Gus the Church Bus as full and as high as we could reach in the luggage compartment and had to load part of the passenger compartment. Our liaison from Room in the Inn, Amanda Jones Fernandez, shared that just days before they were discussing how their reserves for food bags were running low and how the timing was perfect. God is good!
NFUMC Kids will continue to gather each Sunday at 10am for a virtual Sunday School class.. Christina will send out any supply needs ahead of time and post the link to join the Zoom on Sunday mornings. The classes will be fun opportunities for engagement, connection, and faith development. Parents and Sunday School teachers are welcome to join in on the fun!
The items we are collecting in January are soup and crackers and Fuel Bag items. Items may be dropped off at the church during office hours.
