2019 Church-wide Focus:

Learning the Bible, Together

Have you ever wanted to read the bible more, on your own or with your family? Avery UMC is here to help! We think it’s important that everyone know about God through the stories, and the big story, of scripture. That’s why we invite you to join us for a year-long journey through the most important themes and stories found in the bible.

For 31 weeks, we’ll look at those themes and stories together as a church. Worship, Sunday School, and adult small groups will follow the same schedule, which means families can journey through scripture from week to week and discuss what they’re learning, together!

First unit runs Jan. 27 to April 7. Learn more

The Story books and materials have arrived and are ready for pick up in the Fellowship Hall.

Love in a Backpack                      Thursdays, 11 am-Noon

If you haven’t already done so, please consider donating a little time to this important and ongoing service opportunity. Please use the sign-up sheet in the Welcome Area. Volunteers must have clearances on file with the church. If you do not have clearances, come early to volunteer and we’ll assist you in getting them.

Prayer & Care Cards                 Next meeting: February 18

You are invited on a journey that begins with prayer for our loved ones, church family, and the world. We will meet monthly to make and take home three care cards – supplies will be provided.  The Spirit will lead and guide us along the way each 3rd Monday of the month at 1 pm & 6:30 pm. “Cast your burden on the Lord, and the Lord will care for you.”  – Psalm 55:22
