Partners in the Gospel

Partnership is necessary in every successful venture, even when it’sjust for fun. I spent a couple of days at the beach last week with family. One morning My brother-in-law, Jack, got his kite to fly very high in the sky. But how do you keep a kite flying when it’s just you and you need to go do something else? You share it. So I…See More

 Did you know that there are United Methodist churches, not just in the United States but also throughout Africa, Asia, and Europe? We are a worldwide church! I found this map, with the dark-colored countries showing that over 12 million United Methodists worship there. United Methodists are also in mission in more than 136…See More

Opening Doors

Immigration is a much debated issue in our country, and world, today.   It is not a new issue, but the tone of the debate now requires us to equip ourselves with tools for a faithful and civil response.  The United Methodist Church has articulated a position, though not considered doctrine, that gives us a place to begin. …See More

New Beginnings

Soon after I moved to Alexandria, one of our neighbors introduced me to the book The Art of Neighboring. In the book, there is a diagram like the one above. The book invites you to do this: Imagine the center house is your home, apartment, or condominium and the other homes are your eight closest neighbors. How many of these neighbors do you know by name? How many could you write down an attribute for, something you…See More

But how do you keep a kite flying when it’s just you and you need to go do something else? You share it. So I found myself holding the kite string, and marveling at the dancing, rainbow-colored shape above me. It had been years since I had flown a kite. What a joy!

 

We are partners in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, communicating the Good News that are all are loved, accepted, forgiven, welcomed. We step up to help work alongside one another.  We say “yes” when the call is made. We hang in there when it gets hard. We give sacrificially toward…

Reconciling Notes

Immigration 101: 

 Sunday, September 23, in the Fellowship Hall immediately after the 11:00AM service. Light lunch to be served.

An Overview of U.S. Immigration Law

Do you ever wonder about immigration laws?

What’s a visa, a green card, DACA?

Why immigrants don’t just apply for citizenship?

Would you like to have a better understanding of immigration rules in a non-political format?

 

Lunch will be followed by Just Neighbors presenting an easy to understand overview of the ins and outs of our country’s very complex immigration system.

 

Regardless of your political views, this presentation will focus on facts about who is eligible for the various types of legal status in the U.S. and what the various types mean. There will be time for Q&A. 

 

No RSVP necessary, just come! For more information contact Mark Elder markuselder@gmail.com.

 

 

Co-hosted by FUMC’s Reconciling Ministry Team

and the Church in Society Team.
