The summer months are straight ahead and coming into focus, but summer months are much more than a time to “take a break”. This summer Jarvis Memorial UMC will continue stretching to, “Know Jesus as Lord, Grow in faith, and Go to serve others.” Take a look at what awaits us on the horizon . . .
Our worship services this summer will be traveling with Jesus through the Gospel of Luke. A few extra special Sundays to take note of this summer are:
May 22 - CONFIRMATION CELEBRATION @ 10:55am service
June 5 - SENIOR Sunday - we honor our graduating seniors and celebrate their futures in Christ.
July 17 - Former Senior Pastor, The Reverend Jim Bailey, comes among us to preach the GOOD NEWS.
July 24 - CHRISTMAS IN JULY SUNDAY - all three worship services will be focusing on the gift of Christmas - music, and more…
Sept 11 - FILL THE HOUSE SUNDAY 2.0 - Dr. Matthew Sleeth, author of 24/6 will join us in one combined service.
June 20-24 ETL (Erasing The Lines) in Kinston. Youth and adults engaged in face-to-face life-changing mission.
July 24-30 Myrtle Beach Mission Adventure - Youth and Adult leaders engaged in mission near The Grand Strand.
FOURTH FRIDAY SHELTER MEAL @ Crossroads Shelter in Greenville - May 27, June 24, July 22, and August 26. Contact Jeff & Ann Boswell at firstname.lastname@example.org to participate.
August 8-12 Vacation Bible School (Barnyard Roundup: Jesus Gathers Us Together) 5-8pm nightly ARE YOU REGISTERED?? Living Out Loud for all rising 6th graders August 8-12 from 9 a.m.—1p.m.
My prayer for us all is that we will not, “forsake the assembling of ourselves together, as some are in the habit of doing,” (Hebrews 10:25) but continue Knowing, Growing and Serving as the summer months progress. The items listed above are only a glimpse. Much more is coming. Make yourself available and God will make you able.
Still In ONE Peace,
Jon the Methodist
