November Stewardship Series
Join us for worship on Sunday, November 26th as we conclude our Stewardship Sermon Series, “Love Where You Live.” We are called to love, nurture, and welcome those that come into our lives. This Sunday, Rev. Jessica will lead us as we discover ways to “Invest in Community.” The scripture passage comes from Acts 18:1-4, 18a, 19, 24-28. You are encouraged to bring your completed pledge card to worship with you, or to submit one online at: fumc-lafayette.org/478-2/ .
You will have an opportunity to place your pledge card on the altar during our closing hymn. It is only through our combined generosity that we are able to continue shining the light of Christ’s love out into our community.
First Three Sundays
Advent Study Begins Sunday, December 3rd
Are you looking for a new way to journey through the Advent season? Join Rev. Jessica as she leads a 3-week Advent Study on the book, “Home for Christmas: Tales of Hope and Second Chances” by Justin Coleman.
In this book we will hear real stories from real people who have experienced the hope, love, joy, and peace of Advent through their challenges and struggles. It centers around the work of Homeboy Industries, a nonprofit that focuses on providing opportunities and new life to formerly incarcerated or gang-affiliated individuals.
The study will begin on Sunday, December 3rd at 9AM in the Grace Agate classroom. Participants are encouraged to get the book (available at Amazon -see link below) and read chapter one before the first session, though this is not required to participate. All are welcome to attend!

Advent Sermon Series: Unwrapping the Names of Jesus.
We know him by the name of Jesus. But he was also called King, Savior, Emmanuel, Lord and the Light of the World. And each of these names unwraps a little bit more of the story around who the person of Jesus was and still is today. Join us Sunday, December 3 as we celebrate the beginning of Advent with our new sermon series, “Unwrapping the Names of Jesus” where we will explore these titles and what they can tell us about the child whose birth we celebrate at Christmas!
Sunday, December 10th, make plans to attend the Church-Wide Christmas Luncheon hosted by UWF. It will be a Potluck lunch in the Social Hall immediately following worship. The main course will be provided, so bring your most favorite covered dish and share in great food, fun and fellowship. We will be accepting new underwear and socks for children and adults (male and female) to be delivered to UCO. Everyone is welcome to join in the holiday fun!
