Dear Friends and Family of Sedona UMC:
Rest up and get ready for a great weekend at SUMC!!!
Friday evening (August 11th) at 6:00PM (Fellowship Hall) you are invited to join us for a Family Movie Night featuring mouthwatering BBQ’d Pork, Heavenly Potato Casserole, Fruit Fresh off the Vine, and Sensational Salad. Scrumptious Pies and other goodies for dessert and of course Delicious movie treats.
Our feature movie is “Jimmy” a touching-dramatic family film based on a novel of the same name, by author Robert Whitlow. The central character of the film is an autistic fourteen-year-old named Jimmy Mitchell (portrayed by Ian Colletti). Set in the quaint town of Pinery Grove, Georgia, he lives under the loving care of his family, striving to overcome the day-to-day struggles that surface. Once you see the world through Jimmy’s eyes, it will never look the same again.
Lots of great snacks and beverages so come hungry because you will be filled up! Invite a friend or two — this event is free of charge as always.
On Sunday morning I will continue a sermon series entitled “When Jesus Says Go” with a sermon called “Go and Do the Same” based on the Parable of the Good Samaritan from Luke chapter 10. You may think you understand this story but come and hear the “Rest of the Story” as Paul Harvey use to say!
Immediately following worship we will gather together in our Fellowship Hall for our weekly fellowship and greeting time which will feature lots of delicious snacks and the great coffee! All are invited to come and make a new friendship with the “most welcoming and friendly congregation” anywhere!!
BUT WAIT!– We are not done yet — Sunday afternoon you will want to come back for a very SPECIAL CONCERT featuring the music of Ellen Foncannon Stephenson beginning at 2PM in the sanctuary. Join us for an afternoon of uplifting music for the soul featuring Ellen’s original piano compositions and hymn arrangements. Joining Ellen will be Soprano Marta Adelsman. This is a free event and Ellen’s newest CD (among others) will be available for purchase. We have attached a flier that we encourage you to forward to all of your friends.
What a weekend it will be at Sedona UMC, ”Invite, Pick-up, and Bring your friends and family!!!
