CHRISTMAS 2018 Web Image.png

Often, during the Christmas season the juxtaposition of the sacred and secular feel blatantly opposed, or quite blurred. The word “sacred” points to something dedicated as “holy” and “set apart.” Whether it’s setting apart sacred time to be spent in anticipation of the holy, or opening our hearts to recognize all people as sacred, creating holy space that holds people who grieve or inviting God’s wisdom to guide us or a longing for the holy to be birthed into the reality of our lives…

This year, we invite you to a spiritual journey of seeing all things pregnant with the possibility of the holy. What could your Advent and Christmas season experience be like if you lived it looking through the kaleidoscope of the sacred?

Advent Workshop 2018 Web Image.png

December 2, 2018 10am

Advent is a sacred time in our faith community, one that holds special meanings and experiences for everyone. This year's Advent Workshop is intentionally planned for us to come together and experience the stories that tie us together. We will be exploring the advent stories and what they mean for us as faithful individuals and as a community. We invite you to join us as we explore and share these precious stories. All are welcome!

Hurricane Harvey Response Web Image.png

Its time to get back to Victoria and helping put their lives back together. We have our response trailer and we have the tools loaded. Now we need boots on the ground. I am announcing two scheduled trips that you can volunteer for. The only requirement that you must have is the RioConference training called Safe Gatherings. It is mandated by the conference. Jim Balthazar and I are now certified all the way through the third tier of the process of TRUSTed. Every team requires a minimum of 2 of TRUSTed. Other team members are only required to be background checked and completion of the online training under Safe Gatherings. So with that here are the opportunities:

VIM Recovery Team for Victoria June 26 (Tues) through June 30 (Sat).

And

VIM Recovery Team for Victoria July 23 (Mon) through July 27 (Fri)

This second opportunity will be a joint team of WUMC with a VIM team from Virginia led by Duane Cookson. Cookson’s team is the first group we worked with on our first ERT deployment in September.
