Leaving by Karen Kingsbury (Fic Kin)
FUMCD shows its patriotism by displaying 29 U.S. flags on our campus and also on our sign on Main Street. In worship, the United States flag was presented by Craig Bigelow, who in the past served our country. In both morning services the voices of Keiohna Allen and Boeun Kim blessed us with amazing solos. During the month of July the Chancel Choir will not be singing to give them an opportunity to rest and enjoy the church service from a different perspective.
Reaching Others Through Christ
Reaching Others Through Christ is a mission organization in which Jr. High students travel to small towns all over Texas each summer and construct wheelchair ramps for members of those communities that are in need, at no cost to them. Worship at ROTC is designed to expose Jr. High students to different elements of worship and open their eyes to all that God has to offer them as well as all that God can do through them.
Nine of our junior high youth and three adults from FUMCD will be going to Brownwood, Texas on Monday, July 11 through Saturday, July 16. Co-executive Directors of ROTC are our own Rev. Alex Williams and his sister Kelly Carpenter. Also, Preston Jaynes is the 2016 intern. Preston is the son of Rick and Laura Jaynes and grew up in this church.
ROTC Daily Schedule (Monday) arrive at camp, unpack & meet: the camp, your work team and your client. (Tuesday-Friday) • 7am – Wake Up/Breakfast/Worship • 8am – Head to Work Site • 12pm – Lunch Break/Devotional • 1pm – Work Continues • 4:30pm – Showers • 6pm – Dinner/Programs • 8:30pm – Worship • 10pm – Lights Out
