“For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.” ~Jeremiah 29: 11 -14
World Communion Sunday is a hope filled table. On the first Sunday in October, United Methodist congregations join many Christian churches across the globe in celebrating World Communion Sunday. United Methodists believe in an open table, anyone may receive communion. We believe the communion table, the giving and receiving of bread and cup are signs of grace and hope. It is a communal act. We receive strength from each other, we gather, we are joined together in the moment and are nourished for the journey of Christian faith. This Sunday also finds us beginning a new worship series, “Stewards of a Hope Filled Future.” Even with the continued unknowns of the pandemic, we embrace hope, believe in hope, and become hope for the world. In United Methodist Churches around the world, a special offering is collected on World Communion Sunday to fund scholarships for seminarians, we too will participate in this special offering. Come, let us be stewards of a hope filled future.
Join us in person or online for worship on Sundays at 10am.
Note: It is a communion Sunday. Communion will take place right after worship outside in the picnic table yard at FUMC. For those joining us for livestream worship online, please bring bread and juice to your home worship space.
