First United Methodist Church
God (Elf) on the Shelf: Don't Toy with God
Throughout the Scriptures in the Bible, there is hope in the form of Christ coming. God has shown all people Hope. For all that have lived in the darkness, there is a choice to live in and with the Light. And that is the rub…we have a CHOICE to live in the darkness w/o hope or in the Light with the Hope of the world. It should be such an easy choice. And yet…we don’t always reach for the Hope of the world. Rather, we leave our Hope in storage and we leave the Hope of the world on the shelf. What we need to do is bring the Hope into our lives. Join us as we begin our Advent Series and talk about God (Elf) on the Shelf, beginning with "Don't Toy with God"

💌 Let's Get Connected
Expand
The most important way to stay in communication is through our online program, "OnRealm" or the phone app version "Connect". It will allow you to get information that is only shared inside the church family, get a first look at what is shared on other social media platforms and connect with each other.

"Connect" also allows you a secure place to give. Finally, it acts as a virtual church directory! In an emergency, it is where we go first to look for you and how you are doing.

To get information as part of our church community, create an account at https://onrealm.org/FUMCYC.

If you have any questions or have any challenges connecting, contact miriams@fumcyubacity.com

✞ Communion Sundays

Communion is offered monthly, usually the first Sunday of the month. Communion elements can be requested and will be delivered in the most efficient way.

Please order two weeks ahead of Communion Sunday so we can do our best to make sure the elements are delivered on time. Each packet has been personally prayed over and blessed by the pastors.
