This Sunday, Sept. 6: New Sermon Series and Communion
Pastor Curtis starts a new sermon series this Sunday! For the next four weeks we'll focus on better understanding and knowing the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-13).
We’ll also celebrate communion together Sunday.
The church offices will be closed this Monday, Sept. 7, in observance of Labor Day. Have a wonderful and safe weekend! Here's a great article from United Methodist Communications on glorifying God in all of our work. As you prepare for your day off, always remember that our jobs are an opportunity to serve Christ every day.
Around the Church:
Upper Room Devotions for September-October are available in the Narthex.
Finance and Church Council meets next Tuesday, Sept. 8, in the conference room.
The United Methodist Women meet next Wednesday in the conference room at 9:30 a.m. All women are invited to join them for fellowship.
Come sing with us! Our choir practices each Wednesday at at 7 p.m.
Please pray for Mark Boles and family as they mourn the loss of his sister. Please add the family and friends to your prayers during this time of grief and loss.
The Communion Rail Offering for 2015 benefits Meals on Wheels and the Sealy Christian Pantry. Our church’s generosity continues to glorify God!
Holy Spirit ... sometimes known as the “other brother Darryl"

Sometimes I think Christians see the Holy Spirit as the “other brother Darryl.” The last one mentioned. Second runner up. The member of the Godhead we understand (and talk about) the least. Read the rest of the story here
Coming this month and beyond
News from First Kids Mother's Day Out:
The school supplies our VBS kids lovingly donated at VBS were delivered to Selman Elementary. Thanks to all of the parents who made this happen. And thank you to Lauren Carroll, our VBS coordinator, for making this mission a reality!
