Good Folks, it is Friday, June 15, 2018. Only two more shopping days until Father’s Day. (Hint, Hint, Hint)
Today is also: National Take Back the Lunch Break Day; National Smile Power Day; Nature Photography Day; National Flip Flop Day. [Who thinks of this stuff?] https://nationaldaycalendar.com/june/
Last week I mentioned about volunteerism and how it is so important for the church and community. This Sunday, we have nine youth from our youth group heading to PARIS, Texas to be part of a UM ARMY experience. UM ARMY means: United Methodist Action Reach-Out Mission by Youth. There will be four adult sponsors going as well, plus the many supporters of parents and prayer warriors encouraging this group to be a fruitful witness for Christ.
Missions has been an important part of the fabric of First United Methodist Church of Duncanville. When one weaves the tapestry of who we are as a congregation, missions is woven in with bright and beautiful colors. And the church is proud of its rich history.
Keep all of us in your prayers: Youth — Jordan Acheson, Mackenzie Harkins, Mikaela Harkins, Brea Knight, Marissa Ladatto, Kenzie Owens, Ashley Strickland, Abigail Vance, Nathan Wooddell. Church Adult Sponsors: Pastor Frank Alegria, Frankie Alegria, Wendi Harkins and Jennifer Strickland.
I am proud of these youth and adult sponsors.
In your daily prayers, add us to the list. We will leave Sunday and return on Saturday.
Blessings from Duncanville, Pastor Frank (firstname.lastname@example.org)
