Before awaken begins lately we have been streaming music from Pandora.  After a recommendation, the past several weeks we have been listening to a station created with music from the band “Sleeping At Last” and other similar bands.  For those of you that have been interested in what we have been listening to you can check out that station by clicking on the image below.

church clean out day

Meadowbrook United Methodist Church is havein an all-church clean-out day on Saturday, August 29th.  We will meet for breakfast at 8:00am in the fellowship hall, followed by some serious cleaning.  Trash and broken items (not repairable) will be tossed in a dumpster.  Usable items that we no longer need will be donated to Goodwill.  Some item that fall into the “Do we still need that?” category will be collected in one spot for review by church members over the next week.  Please come to help.  It is a big building and we will need lots of help.  Contact Ray Wood (817.451.4245), Jeff Roper (817.572.1652), or Theresa Booth (817.534.1741) for more information.

Awaken: August 25th

Our first Awaken on Tuesday nights and it was great!  We began our worship with several songs.  After a few songs Kyle Howton brought us the message.  We talked about community and specifically we talked about fellowship within our community.  We talked about why we have fellowship, what fellowship is, and how we do it.  Next we will continue our series on community.  After the message we had a time of prayer and closed our worship with one last song.  We took some time to write on the prayer board.  However the prayer board was erased before I could get a picture of it for this blog. Sorry.  Please feel free to add your prayers as a comment to this post and we will all check soon and often and pray with you!  Come and join us next week at Awaken and bring a friend or two.  See you soon!

Awaken: August 16th

Tonight was our last Awaken on a Sunday night.  It was also the conclusion of our summer series.  For the summer we have been opening up the conversation and spending some time to share with each other some things we struggle with or just some thoughts that we have after watching a video from the nooma series.  Tonight at Awaken we sang several songs, led by Matt Roper.  After a few songs we watched the nooma video, Rich 013.  After the video we took some time to discuss some thoughts or questions that arose after watching the video.  Then we closed with one last song and had a time of prayer.  Come and join us next Tuesday, August 25th for our first Awaken on Tuesday nights.  Bring two friends with you and get excited!  See you soon!
