Getting into the swing of a new year 📅
Your Weekly Update from Marceline UMC
Have things started to settle down and feel normal again? Its starting to around our house. What few Christmas decorations we put up this year we’ve taken down, and now we’re settling into this long winter season.
That’s about the same place we are as a church right now, but we do have a few things to take note of. Back in the back of the Sanctuary we have a few sign-ups. One is for communion servers for each month through the end of the year. Sign-up there if you would like to help serve communion some time throughout the year.
We also have a sign-up if you are interested in being a liturgist, giving a children’s sermon, or helping in the nursery. If you are already doing that, you don’t need to sign-up again, but do talk to me if you want to make a change for this year. These are excellent places to get involved, and they’re open for all ages. So give it a thought, pray about it, and see where you would like to sign-up.
Also, watch for new opportunities this year for how we can come together as a church and share that with others around us. I’m looking forward to what God is doing.
What goes up, must come down. But it comes down better with lots of help. See what we mean at the end of this email.
