Top 5 @ SPUMC

We had a great time worshiping and eating together at our annual Thanksgiving Service this past Tuesday night in Fellowship Hall. Carissa, Chris & Isaac provided some great music that set the tone for an evening of intimate fellowship and gratitude. Many thanks to all who helped with the meal, brought fabulous desserts or stayed to help with the clean-up. Check out some images from the evening on our Facebook Page.

One of the ways that you can stay centered during the frenetic holiday season is by signing up to be part of one of our Advent studies. Classes are offered on Sunday & Wednesday mornings and Monday & Tuesday nights. To find out more about our Advent study opportunities, click here. Stay tuned for more details about a special Advent online group experience for Moms Connect and YAG groups!

We just completed our I’m IN worship series with a morning of great music and celebration on November 19. The children’s choir sang at 8 & 9:30am, a combined band led worship at 9:30am and at 11am, we were treated to both a barbershop quartet (Will Keuthe & Men Over Chord) and an amazing horn duo of Bailey Myers & Kevin Grasel.  Rev. Ron preached on the parable of the great banquet and the importance of our RSVP to God’s gracious invitation. You’re invited to bring in or mail in your I’m IN pledge card over the next week or two if you weren’t able to turn one in this past Sunday. Thanks.
