We started a new series on Sunday called Surprised by Hope. Sunday's session was titled Hope for the World. N.T. Wright began explaining his thoughts on how Heaven will actually be on Earth one day, and we as Christians are to be beacons of hope for the world. As I started to get frustrated with a patient today, I actually remembered this...pretty cool feeling! This week Jeff and I will lead The Hope of the Resurrection.
We had a new couple visiting...Brandon and Rebecca Fulenchek. They recently moved to the Richardson area from McKinney and have been visiting FUMCR. So glad to have you both with us!
A couple reminders:
July 17th 7pm Gilley's (free dance lessons and entry until 8pm to see Wade Bowen)
July 31st Pool Party at the Burdette's
August 1st teach Children's Sunday School (still need 3 people ASAP)
Joys and Concerns:
Jeff F's grandad was diagnosed with lung cancer last week. He hopes to begin treatments this week.
Jeff W's grandfather is finally able to get out of the house some since he started his cancer treatments; however, his grandmother seems to be struggling.
Hope to see you all on Saturday!
