Worship at FUMC for May

All Month Christian Home Month In 1992 the General Conference adopted a resolution that read, in part, “we believe that families in our world, at this hour, stand at a critical juncture, in the midst of destructive pressures that are daily taking their toll; and that The United Methodist Church has the opportunity, potential, and responsibility to respond to the urgent needs of families”. The resolution continued by declaring “the month of May Christian Home Month, with emphasis upon family worship in the home, worship and program planning in the congregation, and prayer on behalf of families.” This idea continues today as part of our church’s Social Principles.

All Month Asian Pacific American Heritage Month This annual celebration had its beginnings in 1978 when President Jimmy Carter signed into law a Joint Resolution proclaiming Asian/Pacific American Heritage Week. Later, in 1990 President George W. Bush used his signature to change the week to a month - a month to celebrate Asian and Pacific Islanders culture and heritage.

May 6-12 Christian Family Week This week is celebrated as a lead into Mother’s Day. Gray UM Church in Tennessee suggests, “While every week should be Christian Family Week, and every day should be a day to honor our mothers and our fathers, why not take advantage of the recognition and plan a special family time together – a time when the whole family is present – and get away for some time to reconnect with each other and with God.”

May 12 Festival of the Christian Home/Mother’s Day Most of us already have much good information about this special day. Remember it is more than just a special meal.

May 18-19 Change the WorldMore information.

May 19 Heritage Sunday This is a special Sunday that “provides an opportunity for reflection on heritage, celebration of where the Church has been, how it understands itself as it shapes us today, and the meaning of Christian conferencing. Heritage Sunday calls the Church to remember the past by committing itself to the continuing call of God.” Note this Sunday is about more than just the Aldersgate experience.

May 24 Aldersgate Day This special day recalls “the day in 1738 when Church of England priest John Wesley attended a group meeting in Aldersgate, London, where he received an experience of assurance of his salvation.” It was a key event in Wesley’s life.

May 27 Memorial Day

May 30 Ascension of the Lord Start rereading at Acts 1:6 and then continue on with a few verses beyond that to better understand the meaning of these words.

Pastor Sundar will be in the pulpit three of the Sundays in May. He will be away Memorial Day weekend.

Come, join us for worship. Invite a friend. Stay for coffee hour following the 9:30 service and be part of our time of fellowship.
