At-Home Worship for Sunday March 22, 2020

Good Morning,
I am really excited to bring worship to you today, at home.

This worship order will be used by Methodists from at least 4 churches in our conference, which is a thought that encourages me. The Lord is allowing us to connect spiritually regardless of distance.

Hopefully you will be able to click the link below to access the order or worship.

Be on the lookout for an at-home worship resources and video uploads featuring the Barnett Family Singers (not really) and our very own Fred Grigg (that part is true). Please be patient with us as we figure out this new way of living and worshipping together, but we think this will be enjoyable and valuable!

5th Sunday Celebration Potluck

posted in: Children, News, Pastor, Youth 0

The month of September brings us another opportunity to feast together at the 5th Sunday Potluck. This month Clyde FUMC is excited to turn the 5th Sunday Potluck into a Mission themed challenge! Each Sunday School class has been challenged to participate as a group in some type of mission oriented task. We will hear about these missions as we celebrate the difference each Sunday School class has made in our church and community over the month of September at the 5th Sunday Potluck. If you would like to participate but you are not connected to a Sunday School class we can help! This would be a great opportunity to get plugged into a class or just join a great group of people for the month to complete the challenge. Contact the office at 325-893-4923 for additional information! You may also email the office at office@clydefumc.org.

Advent 2017 – A letter from the Pastor…

posted in: Children, News, Pastor, Youth 0

Dear Fellow Joyful Worshippers,

Advent, a season of joyfully anticipating the coming of our Savior, compels us to break up normal routines so we can “make room” for our King Jesus! The Worship Committee at Clyde FUMC would like to invite you to joyfully anticipate the coming Messiah in some new ways this Advent season.

Beginning on Sunday, December 10th, and going through December 31st, we are combining to one worship service at 10:00 am each week. Our regular schedule for these four Sundays will be:

8:30 am – Fellowship Time in the Fellowship Hall

9:00 am – Sunday school

10:00 am – Worship Service in the Sanctuary

This change is happening in part to prepare for our special Christmas Cantata on December 17th, at 10:00 am, which will feature all our musical ensembles in the Sanctuary and will be followed by an all-church Fellowship Meal. December 24th is also a special day in which we hope to pack the house twice, once at 10:00 am, and again at 6:30 pm for the “Christmas Eve Candlelight Service.”

We know that corporately engaging in a different routine can have the effect of fasting, which results in opening ourselves more fully to Christ. Of course, we don’t engage in a change merely to endure it, but we anticipate that the God who makes all things new will make a new creation of us! Sunday morning tends to be the simplest expression of our assembling together, and one worship service expresses the “unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace” that has been the heart desire among us for quite some time.

We also know that the Christmas season is a natural time for people to try out church for the first time. Being together simplifies our invitational message and equips us to welcome more effectively all of our guests.

An additional facet of our corporate Advent fast will be raising the video screen and revealing the beautiful stained-glass window. I am reminded of the parable comparing a disciple in the Kingdom of Heaven to the “owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.” At Clyde FUMC, we have a God-granted, legacy-rich heritage of creatively and authentically worshiping the Ancient of Days, Who Was, And Is, And Is To Come!

The Worship Committee (Jared Reiff, Melba Miller, Kenny Wilson, Daniel Noworatzky, Lauren Farwell, and Marci Pair) would like to hear any feedback or reflections you receive from the Lord as we journey together through an innovative approach to worship and the Christmas season. We hope your feedback will play a part in helping us discern the Father’s direction for us in 2018.

May you enjoy this season of celebrating the Jesus who first came in a manger, but soon will be coming in the clouds!

 

Only By Grace,

Monty Barnett, Pastor
