Good Morning Church:
Intentional Faith Development
I have included in the headline of this epistle the five practices of Fruitful Congregations. This is a gentle reminder to all of us that as we seek to fulfill the mission of the church: Make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world these 5 practices are an essential ingredient. If each one of us incorporates these practices in our daily lives, then the mission of the church will be carried out.
Here is some other news to use:
This Sunday will be a great time for fellowship and worship! Here is the Rundown of activities:
Covered Dish Lunch: We will have a church-wide covered dish lunch immediately following the 10:55 service. You bring a dish to share and we will supply the chicken. Here is a challenge should you decide to accept--eat with some folks you do not know! You may find new friends and enjoy the company of a brother or sister in Christ that you have yet to meet.
Christmas Program Rehearsal w/ the Choir: Marcia Powell invites you to join the choir for the Christmas Choir program. If you like to sing, but you cannot commit to regular service in the choir this may be an opportunity for you! Join the choir in the choir room at 1:30 pm on Sunday.
Sweetwater Sings: Join us at 7pm for a good ole fashioned hymns sing at the Sweetwater campus. We will start and 7 and sing until we get done. You can also come and see some of the changes that have taken place at the Sweetwater campus over the summer.
ONLINE GIVING NOW AVAILABLE
Hayesville First has a new look website. With abundant thanks to Mark Runge who started and maintained the web page for many years, we are happy to have Joe Powell as our new webmaster. One of the new features of the website is the availability to give on line though a secure click of the mouse. We currently have it set up to accept your gift via a major credit card or your debit card. You may also set up a giving profile and have your gift to God automatically drafted from your account- you set the date and amount. This will come in handy if you happen to be out of town and still want to support the work of God through HFUMC. I invite you to check it out. If you have any questions, call us.
