This week we wrapped up the 5 Practices of Fruitful Congregations with
Extravagant Generosity led by Kristin. We discussed that this could
refer to money, time, and talents and in order to be extravagant we
must stretch ourselves out of our comfort zones. A huge thank you to
Brad and Kristin for representing our class and leading this series.
Over the next two weeks Heath and Courtney will be leading the last
two lessons of Making Love Last a Lifetime.
On February 28th Rodney Whitfield, who is the Pastor for Young Adults,
will be leading the lesson. Let's have a great turnout for this one!
(Jeff says be there or else...) He is taking suggestions for lessons.
This lesson or one in the future might be about the structure of FUMCR
and how our church works specifically.
We also discussed having Joy Anderson or someone come talk to us about
mission opportunities in the church. Brad is going to look into this.
Stay tuned for the next mission project.
Super Bowl Party was a lot of fun! Thank you to the Daniel and Christy
for having all of us over! Stay tuned for socials that are in the
works, including Top Golf and a family picnic afternoon once the
weather warms up.
Joys and Concerns:
Cale and Amy will be traveling to Cabo Wednesday for Amy's sister's wedding.
Courtney will be having foot surgery either this week or next, which
will be followed by a challenging recovery period.
I have mentioned in the past that my grandfather has been in
congestive heart failure for quite some time and was recently put on
hospice care. My grandparents had to be evacuated from their home over
the weekend as they lost power during the snow storms in West
Virginia. My grandfather passed away early this morning. Jeff and I
will be making the trip for the funeral most likely on Thursday and
hope that the weather will cooperate.
We will not be in Sunday School on Sunday and will need someone to
fill in for us.
We will see you all the following Sunday.
