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)
From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph's place in the nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us. Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph. Absent from much of the biblical narrative, Joseph never spoke a word, but his courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God's salvation plan for humanity.
People from all over the community, woven together in Christ, are gathering to weave plastic bags into blessings for those living on the streets in need of a mat to sleep on. Initiated by Susan Turlapati and the Woven Women of FUMC McAllen, God is using this ministry to bring people together from all different walks to take care of those who have so much less. People in mobile home parks and neighboring cities are weaving. Our friends at C.A.M.P. University and Bridges Assisted Living are sorting and cutting bags. High School and Scout groups are weaving. All are welcome to come join us in this opportunity to serve others and recycle plastice grocery bags. Bring bags to the church office and come on Tuesdays, November 21st and 28th, December 5th and 12th, 5:30 – 7:30 pm, to weave.
FUMC McAllen has the priviledge to be a part of Emily’s Meals, a ministry which began as a young girl’s Lenten project almost three years ago. This ministry feeds a meal every single day of the year to 40 homeless people in McAllen. We are thankful for the opportunity to help share God’s love through the kindness of a meal to those who need one. Pictured are a few of the cooks and delivery people from FUMC McAllen. Anyone interested in being a part of this ministry is welcome. The next days we will be cooking and delivering are November 30th, and December 14th.
