First United Methodist Church
The Great ADVENTure: The Unexpected
We are not very good at seeing further ahead than the end of our nose. In February 2020, we thought we knew what our lives would look like at Easter; but we were very wrong. By the end of 2020, we thought we knew 2021 would be totally different. Then 2022 laughed at us… but we know who holds tomorrow! And God plans for each day to be a new adventure into the unexpected. We can fear the ride (like a child fearing the adventure rides at an amusement park) or we can go with the one who laughs at fear and experience the Great ADVENTure! Let’s start this Advent together with God leading us into the great, unexpected unknown.

Our God is the God of the unexpected. A few things could be more unexpected than the King of heaven being born in a stable

THIS WEEK, AS YOU MEET WITH YOUR PERSON, DISCUSS THE QUESTIONS FROM THE SERMON TODAY

What is clear about your situation today?
Have you offered it to God?
Are you living into the character of God so your first instinct is
obedience?
Is your character getting closer to Christs' each day?
Have you trained your mind to think past "facts", to God's vision for
more?
Are you quick to offer God His plan over your own?
Have you developed spiritual disciplines that keep you growing for a
lifetime in your discipleship?
Are you growing to the point in your discipleship where our every thought
is a prayer for God to answer?
Are you determined that you will obey God in everything He asks for the
rest of your life?

CREATE A PLAN TOGETHER TO WORK ON ONE OF YOUR GROWING AREAS DURING ADVENT SO YOU CAN OFFER IT AS A GIFT TO JESUS THIS CHRISTMAS

Bible Study with Pastor Lois - Romans
Wednesdays at 10:15 a.m.

Join us on Wednesday mornings as we study through the book of Romans!
Ever notice how the longer people study Scriptures, the deeper their insights into God seem to be… but the simpler it seems to be for them to explain these deeper truths? This is Paul’s clearest and most systematic presentation of the Good News in the Bible. It is simple really… ALL people EVERYwhere have FREE access to God’s GRACE. Jesus has made a way for LOST people to be restored to Him. It doesn’t matter how you got lost, where you come from or how smart you are… you are LOVED by God and HE wants YOU to be HIS CHILD!

💌 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. We now offer gluten free communion sets. Please let us know if you would prefer these.
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.
