Click here for the Worship Service 200802, NFUMC Sunday Worship on Vimeo In this worship, we are celebrating the Lord’s Table. Before worship service begins, please prepare the cup and bread. During the last week, our teens have done an amazing job. All of the tables in the pavilion have been stained, and they look very good. I hope you will have a chance to come and see it. I would like to express my appreciation to all who prayed for the UMARMY and gave their time. In worship, we are going to talk about a privilege that all of us have received from our creator. What do you think is the most beautiful privilege that we have received? I pray that this worship can be a moment that God shines our soul in grace. Peace Sunjae...

Time’s Up!  How Jesus’ Use of Time Guides Us sermon notes Luke 5:15-16 New Living Translation (NLT)   15 But despite Jesus’ instructions, the report of his power spread even faster, and vast crowds came to hear him preach and to be healed of their diseases. 16 But Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer.

“From Gratitude to Gracious” sermon on Nov 18th

“From Gratitude to Gracious” sermon on Nov 18th

Nov 18

Based on: selections from: Matthew 6: 25-33 SERMON NOTES #1 One of the worst uses of time for Christians is   Worrying. 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?           Matthew 6:25-27 NRSV #2 True gratitude leads us to trust the greatest blessing of all:  Jesus love for us. 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.      Matthew 6:31- 34  NRSV #3 Apathy  is never a Christian option.  True gratitude always leads us to to gracious action....
