Canned Food Drive

Throughout the season, our church continues to collect non-perishable food to be distributed to those in our connunity. Individuals may place the food items in containers located inthe sanctuary, the narthex, and the fellowship hall. A specific food item that corresponds with each day of Advent is to be collected. A printed sheet explaining the collection of food is available from the church office. The food will be delivered to the Helping Hands Food Pantry and The Resource Center.

 

Methodist Family Love Tree

Our church is in ministry partnership with Methodist Family Health. In addition to a special offering, the church supports this joint ministry through the collection of adult size coats, gloves, and twin size fleece blankets.

 

Items may be placed under the tree located in the north narthex throughout the season of Advent.

 

Methodist Family Health provides care to over 2,400 Arkansas children, young people, and families by offering emotional, behavioral, and spiritual support.

Christmas Eve Services -- December 24

The Christmas Eve Early Service begins at 4:00 p.m. in the sanctuary and is an opportunity for members of the congregation to set aside a few minutes to celebrate the season with the church family. Following a brief sermon and the singing of Christmas hymns, Holy Communion will be celebrated. This time together reminds us of the importance of our families and our church families during this time of year.

 

The Christmas Eve Candlelight Service begins at 10:00 p.m. and is one of the most meaningful worship services of the year. The service includes the singing of Carols, special musical offerings, lighting of the Advent candles, celebrating Holy Communion, and a Christmas meditation. The candlelight service reminds us of the light of God penetrating the darkness in our world and in our lives. We gather together to remember the significance of the birth of a Savior and the circumstances surrounding that night.

Sharing and Caring Outreach

 

Caring for the poor and addressing the issue of hunger can be complex and overwhelming. This ministry, which began last summer, includes preparing and serving a sandwich-type meal to residents of one of the area apartment complexes. Through these events, our church not only provides something to eat and drink we also offer hope, encouragement, and sympathy. This is a ministry for the entire church.

Volunteers are needed to provide, prepare, and serve the meal. Preparation for the meal begins at 4:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall kitchen with the team leaving for the apartment complex at 5:00 p.m.
