Clas Update 6/6/10

Genesis Class,

This week Brad led us in the final discussion about What It Means to be United Methodist. Next week we will take a look at some of the hot topics in the Methodist Book of Resolutions.

Price and Kim Newton joined us on Sunday. Price visited a couple of months ago and came back Sunday with his wife. We were so glad to have them in class and look forward to seeing them at the social on Saturday!

Socials: Don't forget our Parents Social/Shower this Saturday, June 12th at 7pm at Ben and Ashley's house. Kids are welcome to come and crash there, if needed, during the social.

Please let me know what date you prefer for our July Social, which will be a pool party at the Burdette's. Saturday, July 24, July 31, or August 7? Once we set this date, we can arrange a few other small get-togethers for the summer so please respond ASAP.

A group of us are planning to go to Gilley's Saturday, July 17th. Free dance lessons begin at 6pm for advanced and 7pm for beginners (this is when we show up). Normally cover is free since they don't start charging until after the dance lessons. Wade Bowen starts playing at 8pm. The dance lessons are fun, and you can ride the electric bull for $5 as well.

Back by popular demand...We will be going to lunch after class on the 4th Sunday of every month. Our first lunch will be Sunday, June 27th. We can pick the place after class, and whoever would like to join us is welcome.

Missions: We are teaching Children's Sunday School at 9:45am on June 27th and August 1st. See below for those who have signed up to teach. If you are not listed and still want to help, I'm sure we can use all of the help we can get. We will still hold our class these Sundays. We still need more people for August 1st so please let me know if you can help.

Brad M is contacting Joy to let her know that we would like to participate as a class every other month in Body & Soul. This is a mission project where you go downtown as a group from the church and serve lunch to the homeless. We must fulfill our obligation of 10 people. We can try to arrange a group babysitter for those with kids. As soon as Joy lets us know our dates, we will send out sign-up sheets.

Jaclyn and Cat brought another volunteer opportunity to my attention and wanted me to forward it on to you guys. This mostly affects people that have some time off during the day, but you can bring kids (as a teaching opportunity or if they are old enough to help hand out bags). This is the Network program that Joy was talking about where they hand out lunch bags to kids that might not have lunch otherwise. They need 4 people for each shift. If you are interested see the sign-up sheet below and contact Jaclyn (

Joys and Concerns:
-Sean's uncle passed away
-Jeff W's grandfather has been diagnosed with terminal multiple myeloma and is awaiting prognosis
-Daniel C's father's cancer has spread and is also awaiting prognosis
-Jeff F's professor/mentor who was instrumental in his career passed away, and we will be traveling to Austin this weekend for his Memorial Service
-Heath's uncle passed away, and they have traveled to Lubbock for the funeral this weekend

Hope to see you all Saturday!
