Sunday Morning Worship

Happy Saturday! Tomorrow (January 23, 2022) will feature special music by Jack Hunter, an anthem by the choir, and a sermon in which Jesus may tick you off, but I’m going to try my best not to.

The plan is to livestream both services.

A .pdf bulletin to print out and a google doc bulletin to be read on your phone can both be found here: https://abilenefirstumc.org/bulletin/

Bible Study: Gospel

This evening at 5:15, we’ll have a Bible study on the “Gospel.” Christians use this word all the time. If you’ve ever wondered exactly what Jesus meant (and even if you haven’t) this promises to be an informative session. You can join us in-person in room 200 or online by going to https://bit.ly/3hyMOhO. You don’t need to read anything ahead of time to participate. (Most people don’t.) We’ll begin with a five-six minute video introduction and then continue the discussion from there. If you want to study the materials ahead of time you can go to https://bit.ly/3qERmdV.

If you’re debating whether or not to join us, please consider this testimony from Gregg Root:

“I would like to encourage anyone interested in attending our Bible Study to do so to gain a deeper understanding of the Bible and share in this experience with our group. I’ve been attending this Bible Study via Zoom and have found it to be both engaging and enlightening.”

Worship — Sunday, January 2, 2022

We had a small, but mighty in-person congregation this morning. Nonetheless, the Holy Spirit showed up and we managed to have a great worship service.
