Sunday School

Fresh Expressions During the month of August, Pastor Veronica will be doing a study titled “Fresh Expressions” using the book by Kenneth Carter Jr. and Audrey Warren. At the North Texas Annual Conference, a workshop was offered to all clergy and lay members of the conference to strive to develop ways to reach the people who are not in churches in our community and find ways to focus on new faces to minister to and new places to do ministry. An invitation to all members of our congregation to attend this study to engage our congregation to evaluate our current mission and ministries. (If you wish to obtain your own copy of the book, it can be purchased from Cokesbury, Amazon, and other places on the Internet for approximately $13.) Please consider joining us.

2019 Vacation Bible School

To Mars and Beyond “To Mars and Beyond” Vacation Bible School was a huge success this year! FUMC Alvord hosted 48 children from preschool to junior high as they learned about going beyond with faith, boldness, kindness, and hope. We began each night with a tasty supper prepared by Donna Nivens, Mike Nivens, and Jo Watson. Then we dismissed to the Sanctuary where the Mission Commander (Audra Nivens) and EP3-20 (Rachel Anderson) helped the children prepare for the lesson with an assembly skit. Pastor Veronica along with a cast of drama characters (including Charlie French, Suzette Munson, Doug Munson, and several children) shared exciting stories from Bible. The kids traveled to stations all around Memorial Hall. Voyagers learned tons of praise songs from Cathleen Rangle and Kim French. Cat Kelly and Judy Smith helped the Voyagers make fun crafts. Bonne Forman manned the Mission Station where each group made items … Read More

2019 North Texas Annual Conference

Create June 2-4, 2019 Christ UMC Plano 3101 Coit Rd Plano, TX 75075 The theme for the 2019 North Texas Annual Conference is “Create!” In the beginning, when there was nothing but chaos, the voice of our Creator God cut through the darkness and brought forth light. When Abram had settled for a life in Haran, our Covenant God called him out of complacency and created a new and hope-filled trajectory for him and his people. When the old covenant was found broken and powerless to transform the human heart, our Redeeming God created a new covenant, full of grace and truth. When the first disciples were holed up in the upper room, hesitant about what to do next and waiting for direction, our Powerful God sent the Holy Spirit and created a new community — the Church. Gifted and empowered by that same creative Spirit, we now have the … Read More
