March 26 is UMCOR Sunday. For more than 50 years, United Methodist congregations have been taking part in a special offering, laying the foundation for the United Methodist Committee on Relief’s ministry of relief and hope. UMCOR’s work of alleviating human suffering around the world includes disaster relief and supplies, disaster risk reduction, health, and humanitarian development.
Leap of Faith will be performing for the program following this Sunday's Lenten dinner. Each member of the worship team has selected a song that they would like to share. Come hear why these songs are particularly meaningful to us, and join us as we praise our Father in song.
The other day, I was putting Eliana (my three-year-old granddaughter) down for a nap. She asked, “Pappy, what is your favorite color?” I responded, “Ellie, I like purple.” She quickly responded, “You can’t like purple. That can’t be your favorite color.” “Well, why not Ellie?” I asked, “Why can’t I like purple?” “Purple is a girl’s color. Only girls can like pink and purple,” she said.
As we stand on our tippy toes ready to open that “brand spanking new” New Year, I can’t help but wonder what is in store for us this year? Do we eagerly step into 2017 with excitement and enthusiasm, or do we cautiously step into the New Year with fear and trepidation?
Each month, the SUMC Witness Committee is challenging our congregation to live their faith more fully every day. We begin by challenging you to share things you love about SUMC with others, particularly through social media.
