Who Can We Be Together? A Biblical Exploration of Luke 13, the 2022 adult curriculum by Candace Simpson brings participants deeper into Jesus' teachings in this chapter of Luke to explore what it means to be in community. As the author notes, “For followers of Christ 2,000 years later, it's important for us to sit with the range of emotions we have in response to these words. It's not easy to build and sustain communities, especially when there are forces that drain us, exhaust us, and even push us to act uncharacteristically. And yet, we are called to act on the most ethical principles of our faith so we can witness the kin-dom of God on earth.''
Opportunity to Help a Local Neighbor:
Faith UMC Benevolence Account is Running Low
Prayerfully, we have been able to help so many local neighbors this year with rent, utilities, and gas cards thanks to you, our generous Faith family! Currently our Benevolence account is running very low, so we are reaching out to you to see if you would like to donate to help local friends and neighbors in our community who have fallen on hard times.
Many of our local community have been out of work due to sickness, surgery, or job loss and simply need a little bit of help with rent, utilities, or gas in order to get back on their feet. You can donate by clicking on the button below, and selecting "Benevolence" as your donation. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
Next Meeting: Tuesday October 25, 2022, 6:30 PM

Do you have a heart for caring for others?
Faith UMC has put together a CARE Team of those who would like to assist in caring for people in our church and in our local community who are in need of a little bit of love and support. Some of the needs include: Prayer, Note Writing, Casserole Making, Phone Calls, Grief Support, Home Communion, Sewing, Crocheting, or Knitting, And more!
We need different people to help in each different area, so choose one (or more) and join us! For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Pastor Jennifer at 281-367-7776.
Even though there is no visible sign of anything happening, to the contrary there is much happening in the background. The property that Faith UMC is selling is under contract (in Title) and is currently due to close in January/February of 2023. The Buyers are in their "due diligence phase" and work is beginning with MUD regarding drainage and shared runoff. So to all of the thirsty coffee drinkers out there, things are still in motion and coffee (and more) will soon be on its way!
