This Sunday we will celebrate two incredibly important things in worship service. The first is the gift of God’s Holy Spirit. This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday, and our worship will be centered around the gift of the Spirit.
The second is the reception of 6 new members by profession of faith. For the last few months our confirmands have put in the hard work of learning about their faith. On this Sunday they will be asked some of the most important questions of their life as they proclaim their faith publicly.
I ask that you continue to keep these young people in your prayers over the next several days, and I invite you to come out in support of them this Sunday during worship as well.
I just wanted to take a minute to let you know what will be coming up over the next few weeks in worship.
This Sunday we will be continuing our sermon series on money and possessions entitled “Not Your Everyday Series About Money.” This week I will be offering up some investment advice that you do not want to miss. We will also be joined by the Boy Scouts in our 11am service as we celebrate them and their work in our community.
On Wednesday, February 10th at 7:00pm, we will be gathering together to celebrate Ash Wednesday. I invite you all to come out to this service as we prepare our hearts for the upcoming Lenten season.
And with the Lenten season will come a new sermon series that begins on February 14th called “Journey to the Cross: A Look at Jesus’ Final Week.” With this series we will follow the final week of Jesus’ life day by day. We will begin on the 14th with the entry into Jerusalem. In order to capture the progression of this movement from Sunday to Friday to Easter, we will actually celebrate Palm Sunday and the Triumphal Entry on February 14th. (Just a head’s up so you aren’t taking off guard.)
I am really looking forward to this series and what I think will be a very informative and moving look at Christ’s last days.
Denver area United Methodist churches have challenged Charlotte area United Methodist churches to a food drive between now and Super Bowl Sunday. All items donated through Park Street will go to the food bank at the BCO. The BCO is currently in need of grits, oatmeal, jelly, and mac & cheese. Please drop off your items at the church anytime between now and Sunday February 7th so that we can take a count and turn in our results. The food will be delivered after our final count.
