JOURNEY TO BETHLEHEM
THIS WEEK..technically YOUTH GROUP is cancelled! However, that doesn’t mean you can’t be involved!!! This weekend, Memorial UMC will be holding its annual “What Child is This – Journey to Bethlehem” drive-thru nativity! This is a special event in the life of our church where we transform our parking lot into a small village to tell the story of Jesus’ birth! It will be presented Friday – Saturday nights from 6 – 9 PM and Sunday nights 5 – 8 PM.
Now, there are different ways you can be involved in this event:
#1: DRIVE THROUGH! Get your family, friends, dogs, etc. in the car and come by one (or more) nights and check out the village! I promise, it will be meaningful and give you a new perspective on Christmas that you will NOT find at the mall or on TV!
#2: BE A VILLAGER. We currently have all of the “main characters” spots filled (Mary, Joseph, angels, shepherds, etc.), but we have LOTS of extra costumes and YOU could come and walk around the village for a while each night and help make our parking lot feel even more like a busy “Little Town of Bethlehem”! There are 2 “Shifts”…
Shift A: Arrive by 5 PM to get dressed & eat. Walk around: 6 – 6:45 PM, then again 7:30 – 8:15 PM.
Shift B: Arrive by 5:45 PM to get dressed & eat. Walk around 6:45 – 7:30 PM, then again 8:15 – 9 PM.
If you are interested,contact TIM LYONS at (336) 259-6920.
See you there!
So, for the last few years we have had steady growth in our “Youth Small Group” ministry. Some of you may not be aware, but we have a few small groups that meet on Wednesdays at 6 PM (they usually end around 7 PM) at the church. These small groups are designed to be different than our Sunday Night Programs. Instead of wild activities or discussing issues, Small Groups meet simply to share about how your week is going and to have a few people pray for you and your life. You will in turn get to pray for others and hear about their week as well. Small Groups are made up of 8 -12 people and you can become a part of one at anytime.
WHAT DO WE DO?
When you meet you are asked to share 3 questions:
What was the HIGH POINT of your week?
What was the LOW POINT of your week?
Where did you see GOD during the week?
HOW DO I JOIN A SMALL GROUP?
Its pretty simple, but it is very meaningful to those who attend and you have an invitation to join a small group as well. The Fall Small Groups begin WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12 at 6 PM. Contact Rodney and he will help you find the perfect fit for you in a small group! Hope to see you there!
