The prayer for First UMC McAllen Women is to create a community of women, who through fellowship, activities, scripture, prayer and service, draw closer to each other and closer to Christ.
"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing." Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV)
It is our deepest desire to meet you where you are and provide studies, activities, and service opportunities to encourage you in your walk with Christ. Please share your thoughts and ideas below.
Please read the message below from Vicky Guerra regarding the schedule for the Lenten study...
We will not meet on March 23 for our Listen to Him Lenten study due to the social isolation mandates. I hope that you continue to read the book and that it helps you contemplate God’s Spiritual gifts while we “carry the cross” during these challenging days. I suggest we post our thoughts about any passages that impacted you on our Woven Women Facebook page. I’ll begin with passages on pages 87-88, which is written about Jesus’ path to crucifixion, but can be adopted for any battle we face.
"Rather than accept the inevitable future of (whatever challenge we face), we abandon ourselves to God. We become defiant in the face of that challenge because we are secure in the hands of our Father. We know there will be a third day on the other side of the cross. We know we are being held by the kind of power than never fails, that never gives up, that always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. We are being held by the power of Love that allows us to love powerfully all the way to the end and beyond."
"Whatever you may be facing—a diagnosis of cancer, a crumbling marriage, financial ruin, prodigal sons or daughters, the pain of rejection, a very uncertain future—don’t resign yourself to some inevitable outcome. At the same time, reject mere optimism and renounce pessimism. Surrender to the inevitability of the undefeatable love of God. Abandon yourself to Jesus, the One who has abandoned himself for you."
May we all surrender to the deeper consecration of God, not just the apparent inevitabilities of a situation outside our control.
We’ll be covering Steps 29-40 on the 30th and we’ll keep you posted on the status of meeting. Meanwhile, I look forward to reading your posts.
Every Tuesday at 12:00 noon women are invited to gather for Bible study, fellowship, and support. Cynthia Murray leads this group as they share and encourage each other in their daily walk with Christ. Bring your lunch and enjoy this time with friends. The group meets in the north building in Overflow Room West.
Seed Groups are communities of people who Love God and Share how Jesus is actively transforming their lives as they Grow in Faith together, and serve as one of the small group ministries of FUMC McAllen. These groups do not gather together to study scripture or work through a curriculum together but instead focus on mutual accountability to one another, led by a trained Seed Group leader. A women’s Seed Group, led by Tanya Perales, meets every Tuesday at 10:30 noon in the Koinonia Room.
There are so many opportunities at FUMC to share Jesus with others, and all are welcome to join in!!! The blessings flow as we reach out in God’s love to others…..
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to email Lee Ann Clemons at or Peggy Trom at .
