We had two visiting couples this Sunday, which made total attendance 25 people! I'm pretty sure Jeff W. was jazzed about this! Eric and Sara grew up in the area, have a daughter, and recently joined the church. Matt and Christen live in Lake Highlands, have a son, and have been visiting FUMCR for awhile. We were really glad to have both couples in class and hope to see them again soon!
Heath will teach the final lesson in the John series this Sunday. If you haven't experienced one of Heath's lessons, you should really come check it out.
February 20, we will join Ed Frantz across the hall in Room 203 at 11am for a 3 week course Profoundly True...Sometimes Factual. We will explore Bible stories that may be too difficult to accept as fact, but hold profound truths for our lives today.
Missions: Body & Soul, which is a soup kitchen downtown at St. Luke's, should start in February or March. Our class is responsible for filling the volunteer server spots every other 3rd Sunday of the month so start looking at your calendars. Let me know if you have any other ideas for mission projects.
Socials: Daniel C. has offered to organize a Frisco Roughriders baseball game this Spring. He says the best date would be Saturday May 14th. He did some research and found that there are some fairly reasonably priced group tickets near the bullpen. The cost would be $10 for the ticket, and $7 for all you can eat food, for a total of $17. They have been several times, and it is a great family friendly place.
Jeff and I are also happy to host the family picnic social that we discussed last year. We have a large field at the end of our cul-de-sac with a park for kids to play and a lake where we can do a little fishing or feed ducks. We can bring our grill out and do a picnic potluck and maybe some games/let the kids run and play.
Daniel and I were discussing how we might fit both of these in before it gets too hot. He said there are other options for the game date, and Jeff and I are pretty open as far as dates in May and June. Let me know your thoughts on this.
Joys and Concerns:
