Sunday, February 23rd
Sometimes our lives are in such disarray we can't envision a way through to redemption. But when we look at the mess through the eyes of Christ, we not only find redemption, we can clearly see spiritual restoration. In Restored, Finding Redemption in Our MESS, we are encouraged to reflect and meditate through our brokenness, showing us that it is only when we focus on the cross as a place to surrender control that we can leave our mess and find true redemption. The six-week study uses Scripture, devotional tools, and the writings of Ignatius of Loyola, John of the Cross, St. Augustine, John Wesley, Evelyn Underhill, and others.
VOLUNTEERS, HELPERS & OUTREACH
Church Offering Counter Needed
West End United Methodist Church has a team of six people who share the responsibility of counting the Church offering on Sundays. One of our counters is retiring and we are seeking a replacement to start in February. The job includes counting and totaling cash and checks and entering the amounts into a spreadsheet. Really very easy. Two people work together and it takes only about an hour. The volunteer will work every third month. If you would like to assist our church with this ministry, please contact Judy Seldomridge at 910-690-3331.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!February 2020
