Reconnect Studies 2018

Reconnect will be taking a break for the summer. Studies will resume in the fall.

We come together at the Methodist Activity Center (the MAC) in Asbury Hall for a community meal at 5:45 p.m. and then adjourn at 6:30 p.m. for various smaller group activities such as faith studies, Youth, Children’s activities and Chancel Choir.

For adults, we are offering only 1 study for the first 6 weeks of Reconnect — Adam Hamilton’s Moses: In the Footsteps of the Reluctant Prophet. If you would like a copy of the book, the cost is $13 and a sign-up sheet will be in the Narthex.

Raquel’s Wings for Life

Raquel’s Wings for Life is hosting their annual bicycle ride on Saturday, August 11, 2018, in Wise County (start and finish at the Decatur airport). Their goal is to raise money in support of their work in providing transportation (via airplane) to cancer patients travelling to either Houston or Tulsa for treatment.

Last year, our Church staffed 3 water and snack stops for the bike riders. We have been asked to staff the 3 rest stops again this year, in addition to providing a few motorcyclists to check the ride route throughout the morning as the riders move through the county.

Ashley Craven is coordinating the rest stop staffing and Pastor Brian the motorcyclists. Volunteers are needed so if you can, please sign up on the volunteer sign-up sheet in the Narthex.

Dinner for 4

You have seen them nearly every Sunday — by the donuts in the Fellowship Hall, on the elevator, across the aisle in church. You may have even done the “help me with your name” thing.

But you don’t REALLY know them.

You know them well enough to nod and smile — and that’s about it. But being part of a church family has the potential for so much more!

Each group will share a meal once a month.

Home cooked. Pot luck. Restaurant. Dutch treat. Brown bag. Carry out.

Food. Fellowship. Fun. Family.

Check back for the next dinner schedule after summer.
