Christ Candle – O Holy Night

Tonight we light the Christ candle of the advent wreath and by doing so we complete the circle.  Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace.  Hope is what inspires us.  We live to be love.  Joy is what brings us closer to God.  Peace is what it is all about.

Merry Christmas!

Awaken: November 17th

This past Tuesday night we had a great time at Awaken.  We sang a couple of songs to begin our worship.  Matt Roper led us in worship.  After singing some songs together Justin continued our message series talking about words or phrases that you hear in church that might be a little hard to understand.  This week we talked about faith.  We talked about what faith is and we talked about Peter and Peter’s faith.  Justin talked about Peter and walking on water, suggesting that he did not lost faith in God, but he lost faith in his ability to follow God.  Think about that for a little bit.  After our message time we closed with some time for prayer and a song. Come out and check out Awaken next week.  Bring a friend with you and we will see you soon.

Awaken: January 11th

We had a great night last night!  We opened up for some fellowship time around 7:00pm.  We had some little debbie snacks (zebra cakes are my favorite) and coffee for all to enjoy!  We began worship right around 8:00pm as usual.  We sang a couple of songs and then went into our discussion/message/sermon time… Mel Strom continued on our Water series.  This week we talked about troubled waters and we talked about Peter and Jesus walking on water.  Then Matt Roper played the song Voice of Truth, by Casting Crowns, during our prayer time.  We then closed our evening with another song and some more fellowship!  We collected money for the Water Project and we are doing great, so keep it coming!  Come out next week as we continue the Water series.  Bring a friend and tell someone you don’t know to come and join us at Awaken on Sunday nights at 8:00pm in the loft at Meadowbrook United Methodist Church.

Awaken: October 26th

This week at Awaken we had Jason Nix out to lead us in worship.  Jason introduced us to several new songs and did a great job.  I am sure we will hear more of these songs in the future!  We had plenty of coffee and a whole bunch of “pigs-in-a-blanket” thanks to Mel Strom for providing us with the snackage.  Delicious.  Matt Roper lead us in some discussion.  We talked about Faith, Hope, and Love.  We talked about the connection between them all and in particular we talked most about Hope.  Thanks Roper!  Come out and join us next week at Awaken.  We will be back with full band.  Bring a friend and we will see you soon.

Check back later this week for prayer request.
