Dear Friends of Clyde FUMC,
In case you missed it, I need to catch you up on something big: our Fellowship Hall is DEBT FREE!!!! When God fulfills His promises, like this one that He made in February, it is simply exciting! And exciting times call for one thing – celebration!
So we have a few special events coming up to help mark the occasion (all are in the Fellowship Hall):
Prayer and Praise this Sunday (Sept. 13) at 4:30pm. When I first moved to Clyde, I called for a couple of prayer nights where we specifically asked God to meet our financial concerns. Now that He has delivered in a very powerful way, it’s appropriate that we pause to say “Thank You!” This will be a unique Prayer and Praise service – it’s called Harp and Bowl worship, patterned after Revelation 5:8-9. I participated in one of these a few years ago at a NWTX Conference Prayer Summit at Ceta Canyon, and young and old appreciated the reflective, free, from-the-heart time of worship.
Combined Worship Service next Sunday (Sept. 20) at 10:30am, where we will dedicate our Fellowship Hall! We will celebrate how God used all of us to move that mountain of debt, and we want to give special attention to Dorothy Jean Edwards, as some momentum-shifting gifts were given in her memory. Come join us for this special celebration!
The John Wesley Adventure, Sunday (Sept. 27) at 10:30am, where Rev. Tom Fuller will tell the first installment of the exciting story of John Wesley’s life and the early days of the Methodist movement. Join us also for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday evenings (Sept. 27-29) at 6:30pm for more of the amazing things Wesley did. Please be praying that we “would not be hearers only, but doers also of the Word” we will receive during this revival-type experience!
Again, our special schedule for September 20th and September 27th is as follows:
9:00am Coffee and Donuts Fellowship Time
9:30am Sunday School
10:30am Combined Worship Service in the Fellowship Hall
***(Note, we’ll be on our regular, 2-service schedule for this Sunday, Sep. 13th.)
Don’t miss this chance to party like … um, … Jesus would!
Only By Grace,
Pastor Clyde FUMC
