How to Say a Good Goodbye
May 19, 2013
John 14:1-7:
Welcome and Greeting
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.

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
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! If you are interested in taking a shift that night, please
let us know on your Connection Card.
Relief Effort
Please continue to keep those affected by this week's Texas
tornadoes lifted up in your prayers. Donations to support the
UMC response in Granbury, Cleburne and other areas can be
made through the United Methodist Committee on Relief
(UMCOR). Please make checks payable to Faith UMC with
"UMCOR Advance #901670" in the memo line. 100% of your
donation will go to the relief effort.
Vacation Bible School News
Vacation Bible School is the week of June 17, and
registration is now open.
You might be thinking, “What’s the rush?” But VBS will be
here before we know it. So we’d really appreciate it if you
would register as soon as possible.
VBS is Faith's largest community outreach opportunity, so
please pray for this ministry and consider donating your time
and your financial resources.
 You can register children 4 years through 5th grade
 Cost is $10/child ($30 max/family.) and includes a T-shirt.
 If you would like volunteer, please indicate such your
Connection Card or sign up at the registration table.
Newly Rebranded Young Adult Ministry
Define The Relationship (DTR) invites
young adults of all ages to come and
participate in the
discussion as we strive to define our
relationship with God. If you are a
young adult looking for inclusive fellowship—and meaningful, relevant
conversations about what it means to be a Now Generation
Christian—we’d love to have you join us.
We meet each week on Monday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30.
Typically we’re here at the church or in Denton at Yogurt
Fusion. Let us know you’re interested via your Connection
Card, and we will gladly reach out to you.
“Gift” from Mardel
Mardel wanted to thank us for letting them come and ‘set up
shop’ to sell Bibles, so they left an abundance of 30% off
coupons. Help yourself—they are at the Welcome Center.
* Coupon expires at the end of May, so get them now.
