OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
THANK YOU to everyone who supported Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child mission this year by returning filled shoe boxes for distribution to children around the world. We delivered 92 shoe boxes on behalf of TUMC to the Northland pickup center on Tuesday 11/18/2014. If anyone still has a filled shoe box to donate, please be sure to bring it to the church office or Narthex by next Sunday, 11/23/2014, as the final day the OCC truck will be at Northland is Monday, 11/24/2014.
Family First Sundays Begin November 2!
On November 2, TUMC begins a new initiative called Family First Sundays that encourages families to worship as a whole on the first Sunday of every month. Children’s Church will not meet on these Sundays; however, nursery care for infants through 4 years of age will be offered. Wonderful Worship Packs will be available in the Narthex for children to pick up and engage with throughout the worship service. Also, beginning November 2 the Children’s Moment will be relocated to a later time in the service so our children may experience a greater portion of the worship service before being dismissed to Children’s Church on the other Sundays of each month.
New Member Orientation will be Wednesday, November 19 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. New Member Sunday is November 23 during the service.
Invitation to the New Testament
Pastor Pastor Sarah will begin teaching Invitation to the New Testament, an eight week Disciple Bible Series, on Wednesday, January 7, 2015. In this study, participants will explore the writing of the New Testament using the story of Jesus as a starting point. This study then looks at how the early church took ownership of and was shaped by the story of Jesus and how the church learned to develop as disciples and create communities of faith. Sign-ups for this study will be available in the Narthex beginning Sunday, November 16 or by emailing the Church Office at email@example.com. Participant books are $14.00 each.
