If you missed it last Sunday, Pastor Curtis and the United Methodist Women recog-nized and celebrated graduating seniors, Kaiton Theriot and TJ Theriot, during the 10 am worship service. Cindy Theriot is proud grandmother to both. Please pray for the all of the senior class of 2016 and congratulate them on their accomplishments!
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.
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.
Last week, Trinity Sunday, launched us into our ministries after Pentecost with a celebration of the Triune God in whom all our lives and ministries are grounded. We end the Season after Pentecost on Christ the King Sunday, which points us to our final destination in the culmination of the reign of the one who makes us and all things new.
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.
