Fourth Sunday of Easter
While Faith UMC’s building is closed during the COVID 19 outbreak, each week for Sunday worship, we will post an “order of service,” similar to an online bulletin. You may click through each item in sequence, or you may hop around and choose your own worship adventure. This order of service will be posted each Sunday morning by 10 a.m. Closed captioning may be available on the YouTube video – click on the CC icon.

Ways you can give: While the church building is closed, there are a number of ways you can continue to financially support Faith. By clicking HERE , you can make a one-time or recurring gift online via EFT or credit/debit. Online giving is a “no-touch” option which is so helpful during this time. No church members or staff members have to touch checks or cash or go to the bank. Alternatively, you can log into your bank’s online banking page and direct them to send a check to the church. They’ll even cover the postage. Or, if you’d like to write a check, you can simply mail it to the church office. Mail is being picked up and checks are being deposited regularly. Email Jan Spencer , Financial Manager, if you have questions.
Benediction Response, “Grant Us Thy Peace”
Postlude, “Rejoice Now, My Spirit”
Dive Deeper into Experiencing the Forgiveness & Acceptance of God
Go to our interactive page where you can continue the conversation and journey to become a disciple of Jesus Christ. There we will build upon our worship as we reflect, wrestle, and interact with one another in a variety of ways. Engage with music, literature, and art. Download a journal page of questions from the book for your personal reflection. Share your responses, anonymously, with the wider Faith community. Define “experiencing the forgiveness & acceptance of God” as a community on our mind map. See a list of resources recommended by the authors of the book.
Join us on Thursdays at 7:00pm via Zoom as we engage in a form of Centering Prayer around this week’s theme. Look for the email in Thursday’s Finding Faith Online or contact Gina Dawson, Minister of Adult Discipleship, at email@example.com .
