Spring is here which means the work on the concrete replacement steps for the outside sanctuary entrance will begin on Monday April 30th! This work is weather dependent and will continue through Sunday May 6th. The entrance will be CLOSED on May 6th so please plan to enter the sanctuary by one of the other inside doors. If you have any questions about this project please contact Kelli at the office or reach out to any member

Memory Verse Prayer Guide   April 2018

This prayer guide is prepared each month to assist you in applying the month's memory verse.  You are encouraged to use this prayer guide in small groups, Sunday School classes and as individuals.

On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.  For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”  Acts 1:4-5

 

WAIT FOR THE GIFT MY FATHER PROMISED

Lord- One of the things I love about you is that you enjoy giving gifts to me.  Thank you for these gifts... (Each person can thank God for 2-3 things God has given.)  Your presence is the best gift.  Holy Spirit I welcome you in my life today.  I surrender my will to your desire to guide my thoughts and actions. Amen

FOR JOHN BAPTIZED YOU WITH WATER

Lord- Thank you for the awareness that I need to turn away from my sin and for providing the rescue that I need.  Thank you that I have been included in Christ, joined with you in death, resurrection and new life.  Holy Spirit please continue to shine light into my dark areas.  Empower me to embrace the full truth of your examination.  Help me to accept these revelations and invite change as a result of the power you bring by your presence.  (Pause for a few moments of silence and quietly confess anything God brings to your mind.)  Amen

YOU WILL BE BAPTIZED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

Lord- Thank you for the work of the Holy Spirit in my life, who brings conviction without condemnation.  Through your supernatural work, you saved me, washed me clean, and renewed me through the Holy Spirit.  How great your initial transforming power was when I invited you.  Please help me to be a worthy host of your presence today.   Amen

Father, unleash the power of the Holy Spirit to bring spiritual breakthrough in my life, in our church family, and in our community.  Fill us with humility, unity, and passion.  Let your kingdom come and your will be done.  May the name of Jesus be held in high honor in all that we say and do.  Amen.

PANCAKE BREAKFAST

Do you love the smell of bacon filling the church, and the sticky fellowship of pancake breakfasts each month? Help dream for the future of this ministry, and join our Pancake Breakfast Team! We have a number of groups who regularly volunteer to serve at pancake breakfasts, but we need monthly coordinators, shoppers, greeters, and behind-the-scenes people to make the pancake breakfast all that it can be! Would you pray for the future of this ministry, and also consider joining us for a team formation meeting on March 19 at 6:30 p.m.? Michael Connolly will be there to walk us through how this ministry runs and help guide us into the future. If you have any questions, please contact kathy@marysvillefumc.org. We are looking forward to more bacon, and more importantly, deeper fellowship each month as the body of Christ!

 

 

(Note: There will be NO pancake breakfast in March or April due to the rummage sale and Easter Sunday. Join us for our next breakfast on May 6).

At all three services, there will be a whiteboard available with Post-it notes. As you are led by the Holy Spirit, please use these Post-it notes to write your God-given answers to your prayers and place them on the board. Listing your name is optional.

Let us share how God has showered His people with Love.

CALLING ALL CRAZY, ZANY PEOPLE!!  I know you are out there! Pastor Peggy is seeking to build a Children's Choir Leadership Team of 4-6 adults with a heart to lead children on paths of praise and worship! As  MFUMC is stretching towards the vision of Team based ministry and not exhausting individuals with solo leadership, I feel it is necessary to call forth others to serve in this amazing ministry!  Serving on this team would enable us to rotate in and out of months or seasons and partner with other creative minds. Partners would be responsible for one or two months per year and I would supply resources and training.  Come on church, let's lead these children to the throne of God with song and praise!  Please prayerfully consider serving in the Body of Christ in this manner.   Interested individuals are encourage to email Pastor Peggy at  peggy@marysvillefumc.org
