Where Do You Want to Go? Listening Guide Order of Worship How to Say a Good Goodbye May 19, 2013 John 14:1-7: Welcome and Greeting Praise Because Of Your Love Blest Be The Tie That Binds Aspects of Goodbye: 1. Anticipate Every spiritual journey is different—each unique and specific to the individual embarking upon it. Sometimes getting started can be daunting. So here at Faith Church, we offer a GPS to help you chart your particular course. Gather is to come together in groups, large and small, with a shared mission to pursue God. When we get together to love one another, and to serve others, God shows up – and does amazing things. Practice is to put your hands to work for the kingdom. This includes mission opportunities, serving, helping out where needed and much more. Christian life is about more than good thoughts and a loving attitude. It’s about living our calling to be salt and light in the world. This means doing the work of the kingdom. Study is to increase our understanding of the God we gather together to worship and serve. At the heart of our navigation plan is the belief that the Bible is our ‘compass’ for life. We can never fully understand God. But mysteries and questions are not obstacles to growth; they are an invitation to continually journey deeper in our understanding of God and the Kingdom to which He invites us. 2. gratefully. 3. generosity. 4.

Children are always welcome in worship at Faith. If preferred, a nursery is available for children ages 0-4. W h a t ’s H a p p e n i n g a t F a i t h C h u r c h *Bulletins are available on our web site: www.tryfaith.org* Gather Practice Called Charge Conference—TODAY Youth Calendar Notes Today, right after church at 11:30, we will hold a very brief ‘called charge conference’ - which is Methodist-speak for an all-church meeting. The purpose of our meeting is to endorse and affirm a candidate for ministry. Playground Safety The weather is warming up and our beautiful, shaded play area out back is a real draw for kids. Even though the play area is enclosed with a fence, it is imperative that you supervise your children while they are on the playground. As dictated by our Ministry Safe policy—for the safety of the children and the protection of the church—we cannot allow children to be unattended on the playground (where they are literally out of sight and out of earshot). They must be supervised by at least two adults at all times. To ensure adequate supervision—without requiring every parent of every child to be on the playground—we would like to set up a rotation, much like we have with nursery volunteers and Sunday School teachers. We respectfully request that all parents with children that enjoy spending time on the playground volunteer to be on this rotation. You can let us know you are willing on your Connection Card. Family Fun in Frisco Faith has reserved a block of 60 seats for the Rough Riders Game on Friday, July 5. Tickets are $17 (section 103) and include all-you-can-eat hot dogs, brats, nachos, and Dr. Pepper products, a Rough Riders baseball cap, and fireworks after the game!! Tickets go on sale here at the church starting today. Tickets will be available to purchase thru Sunday, 6/2. We will not be able to ’hold’ tickets; payment is required to secure tickets. FYI—children 2 and under will be admitted to the game for free if you are happy to have them in your lap, rather than purchase them a ticket. Calendar Notes: Wednesday Nights We will meet this Wed, 5/22—then be off for a couple weeks We will kick off poolside Bible Studies on Wednesday 6/12 Sunday Suppers No Supper Sunday tonight—Pirate Pancake Dinner instead—see info below Pirate Pancake Dinner—Tonight In lieu of their Supper Sunday this evening, the youth will host a thank you banquet for all those that have invested their time, talent, and/or resources in the youth ministry this year. So if you supported our kids financially in any way, if you drove them to/from activities, if you contributed to a Sunday Supper, if you donated ‘stuff’, if you sponsored someone for S.T.R.I.V.E.—they want to thank you. The banquet (a.k.a. pancake dinner) will of course have a pirate theme, so bring your best pirate humor and feel free to dress the paaarrrt. There will be food and entertainment (hmmm....) so make plans to be here. If you haven’t already done so, you can let Chad know after church today that you plan to attend. Youth Lock-In & Out Our youth will kick off their summer of awesomeness with a Lock In & Out– Friday, 6/14 7pm thru Saturday, 6/15 7am. Itinerary includes: Broomball, Wal-Mart, Whataburger, fun games, and plenty of other yet-to-be-determined shenanigans. There is a $10/person cost for the broomball. ** We need adult volunteers to keep us Ministry Safe, and we would love to have you join in on some of the craziness and fun!
