A message from Brother Jaimie Alexander
Dear FUMCBV Family,
We have entered into a new year with the same assurance of the powerful life-giving presence of God as in the former year. The year has started off very full of hope, promise,and change for each of us. I am excited to see how we as a church in ministry and mission will grow and expand our vision in 2017. I ask you to be faithful in praying for the mission and ministry of FUMCBV daily. I truly believe God has something beyond our current understanding for us to do in the Kingdom in the days ahead that will transform lives with the power of the love of Jesus Christ!
I ask you to please be in prayer for the families of Howard Johnson who passed away last Friday and Clyde Cheek who passed away today.
Please hold Carol Cheek and her sons Dan, Ken, Jim, and family in your heart as they invite us to celebrate Clyde’s life at his memorial service on Monday afternoon, Jan 9th at 2:00 pm in the Sanctuary. A visitation reception will follow the service in Becker Hall,
Also please hold Mary Johnson, daughter Cindy and family in your heart as they invite us to remember Howard’s life at his Memorial Service on Saturday, January 14th, also at 2:00pm in the Sanctuary with a visitation reception to follow in Becker Hall.
Thank you for your faithful prayers and concern for Arlene Alford who truly has experienced the miracle of healing. Arlene is in rehab at Highlands Healthcare and Rehab in Bella Vista now. In the near future she will be will be going home.
This Sunday is Epiphany and in all worship services we will share in a blessing for the new doors of the church as well as you will be encouraged to having a blessing of the doors at your own home. I am excited to share in this time of blessing at the Church and also at my home. I hope you will be also.
God is Faithful!!
Don’t just come the church, Be the Church!!
