News and Events for July 30

For worshippers interested in renewing the promises they have made at their baptism, we invite you to participate today during the worship service in the Reaffirmation of the Baptismal Covenant and the Baptismal Remembrance. Baptism marks one’s acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the beginning of new life in Christ, the gift of the Holy Spirit, and one’s initiation into Christ’s Holy Church. Baptism is one of our two sacraments in The United Methodist Church, along with Communion. Baptism is a means of God’s grace, an outward sign of God’s inner work of grace — in which we put off the old, renouncing sin and the evil powers of the world, and pledging our loyalty to Christ. For more information on our understanding of baptism, visit http://www.umc.org/what-we-believe/baptism.

 If you have not received the sacrament of Baptism and are interested in doing so, please talk with Pastor Dan to arrange a time.

News and Events for July 2

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.

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.

Pastor Dan is on vacation this week. For questions concerning church matters, please contact Nancy Forrester, our Lay Leader, at 423-538-6379.
