Dear Ford Street Friends,
As I write this, I am reminded that I am already entering into my 5th month as your pastor. Time has flown by! In these past 5 months, I have seen so many wonderful ministry opportunities happening, as well as continuing to get to know all of you. I have seen passion for new ideas and honest conversations about the future of our congregation. This is an exciting time, and also a time when we have work to do!
In that spirit, here are some things coming up to keep in mind:
1) Life Groups! We hope to launch new life groups in September. We will have a “Life Group Launch” on Sunday, September 24 following worship. This will be an opportunity for you to get plugged into a Life Group- a small group for fellowship, learning, growth, prayer, and fun.
There will be a survey handed out starting this Sunday, August 13. We want to hear from YOU about what kind of Life Groups we need, and if you would like to be a part of one, or even facilitate one! Look out for your survey, fill it out, and send it back to the office. We look forward to hearing from you!
2) Grand Re-Opening of Upstairs this Sunday after worship! There have been busy hands hard at work refreshing our upstairs space. A special thanks to Greg and Gay Scott who have put in countless hours to make this space usable and available for use, especially for children’s ministry opportunities, as well as others. This Sunday, we invite you to come and explore what’s been happening upstairs. Cookies will be waiting for you, as well as smiling faces. Come check it out!
3) Our sermon series on “Bible Stories for Grown-Ups” continues this week as we take a second look at the story of Noah. Invite a friend to come and journey alongside us as we take a fresh look at this familiar story in scripture.
See you Sunday!
Rev. Jill Moffett
Lead Pastor, Ford Street UMC
