A Note From Pastor Davidby Pastor David Alexander
Dear First Family,
We are looking forward to sharing a great Memorial Day weekend. We have two kiddos at our house who are excited about the end of school. I know many others are sharing in that delight. We also celebrate our graduating High School Seniors and their families. We had a wonderful time of worship and prayer for each of our Seniors last Sunday evening.
This weekend we will be sharing the final message of our Greater series. I hope you have enjoyed the challenge of this series to claim the promise Jesus offered to his original disciples and each of us in John 14:12.
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
Next weekend a new season will be in full swing as we kick off our theme for the entire summer.
Our focus for this summer is BE HERE! We want to challenge you to be here in worship but more broadly, we want to challenge ourselves to be fully present with others wherever we find ourselves in this season. We want you to claim BE HERE if you have some time to get away this summer. We want you to think about BE HERE when spending time with family.
In a world filled with a multitude of distractions, together we want to challenge ourselves to a greater focus on the goodness, grace, and life that is happening all around us every day.
And starting today you can preorder your “I’m Here” shirts online.
We have sizes for all ages including children and toddlers. Those will be available in the Atrium next week. We would love for you to share your pictures with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org tagging us (@firstmethodistmansfield) on social media. While you are away, don’t forget that you can worship online and continue supporting the everyday mission and ministry of our church by giving online as well.
I look forward to seeing you this weekend as we wrap up our Greater series and share a special weekend of remembering the Greater lives who have sacrificed to enable the life we live today.
Grace & Peace,
