Young Adult Mac & Cheese Cook-off, Pulled Pork Paradise, VBS Soon!

Week of May 29, 2018 – In This Issue:

SUNDAY JUNE 3 – SECOND SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
“Against the Grain”
Pastor Peggy Hillmon Preaching
Communion served at both services
Mac & Cheese Cook-Off following 10:30am service
 
Synopsis: 

Jesus’ ministry took everyone by surprise. He broke the rules-rules of the religious and rules of nature. Everywhere he went, people began to ask themselves, “Can he do that?” The religious leaders, his family, and his disciples all wondered where following after Jesus would lead. We, too, may wonder what will happen if we take Jesus seriously enough to follow him.

A WAY FORWARD – STATEMENT OF INCLUSION
Declaration of Support of LGBT Persons
 
The 2016 General Conference charged the Council of Bishops to discern A Way Forward concerning issues of human sexuality for United Methodists around the globe. This council will convene in February 2019 in a special session of General Conference. 
 
In that regard, the Kansas City Chapter of “Wide is God’s Welcome,” an advocate group for LGBTQ persons, has invited all churches in the Great Plains Conference to offer the opportunity for members to sign a Declaration of Support for the full inclusion of LGBT persons in the United Methodist Church. 
 
A signatory form and the statement will be available Sunday June 3 and June 10. You may also sign the online statement by
