News and Events for August 7

We celebrate Communion today. On Communion Sundays, usually the first Sunday of each month, we collect a special offering to share with our brothers and sisters at the Robinson Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church . Claiming our oneness in Christ Jesus and to help bridge the racial divide in our culture and because of our shared Wesleyan heritage, we support that congregation with a gift of $100 per month. During  Communion, you can bring your offering forward. You can make a check payable to Bluff City UMC and write “AME Zion” in the memo line.

Today is Promotion Sunday, in which we celebrate our children and youth moving up in Sunday School.  As a congregation, we have pledged to love and nurture them in the faith.  We are grateful for our Sunday School teachers and children’s ministry and youth ministry adult servants who give tirelessly to reveal God’s love to our children and youth.  Please remember them all in your prayers.

The flower arrangement on the alter is in honor of Dr. and Mrs. Ronald Carrier.

 Our second Sunday of each month is Invite A Friend Sunday. We would like each person who regularly attends worship to be praying specifically for someone and to invite them to come to worship that Sunday. Of course, you can invite a friend to come any time, but we hope you will make a special effort for Invite A Friend Sundays.
