First UMC Sealy Digest

A look at happenings at First United Methodist Church Sealy

This Sunday, June 19: Father's Day and VBS Help Needed!

Pastor Curtis continue our current sermon series in Galatians. Fasten your seat-belts ... we'll be covering some ground you have never been over before! Get ahead by reading the whole book of Galatians so you will be ready to receive the Word of the Lord.


We'll also recognize the men in our lives with a special gift for Father's Day.

About our current sermon series: MISSION IN THE WORLD BUT NOT OF THE WORLD

We are in the Season after Pentecost for approximately the next six months. During Easter Season, the church forms people in basic Christian doctrine and prepares them for their Spirit-given ministries in the world. Now, during the Season after Pentecost, the church challenges and supports people as they live out these ministries.


During these months, Pastor Curtis will be alternately focusing on readings from the epistles and the prophets. Most Sundays we will be reading both, so we can follow both teachings, but he will switch the sermons at key point to keep you on your toes.

It’s a new month with a new giving goal! First United Methodist Church Sealy celebrates 130 years of ministry this year. To commemorate the special time in our church’s history, we are collecting 130 things each month. This month, our goal is to deliver 130 boxes of PASTA and/or MAC & CHEESE to the Sealy Christian Food Pantry. Bring all you can!

Donation boxes are in the Narthex and Church Offices.

If you missed it, last weekend was quite the celebration as we baptized Kord Poenitzsch, son of Kevin and Nicole Poenitzsch. Thanks to those who attended this special services honoring our very special and very little new First UMC church family member.
