Our world is full of bad news. It helps to know where all this bad news started. What was the first bad news headline ever? We will find out this week in part 2 of our new sermon series on the book of Genesis called "Origins." And the best part is we don't even have to wait until the next chapter before God responds to the bad news with good news. Click here to read ahead.
We will worship in person at 8:30 and 10:00 in our Sanctuary and online at 10:00 viaFacebook Liveandour website. Our service will include a time of "hymn sing," so come ready to call out your favorites!
Wednesday Bible Study is Back!
Go deeper on Wednesdays at 6:00PM with the Genesis Bible Study that goes along with our sermon series. Come learn together in person in our Fellowship Hall (we are still wearing masks and social distancing), or engage online from wherever you are on our Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/RobertsdaleUMC or our website at http://robertsdaleumc.com/live. You can also watch any that you missed at either of those locations or on our YouTube channel.
New Opportunity! - Virtual GriefShare Group
Nancy Kahrs, a friend from Shalimar UMC who has been gathering with us online, will be leading a virtual grief support group called GriefShare beginning Sunday, January 24, at 3PM. This group will meet over Zoom, a video conferencing app/website. This year, many of you have experienced grief and loss. Some have asked if I know of a support group like this. I would strongly encourage you to sign up and attend the first session to see if you're interested. You can register by CLICKING HERE, and then clicking "Register for this group." The only cost is the $15 workbook, which you can also order on the website. If you need help learning how to use Zoom, click here to email me. I would be glad to help!
Grace and peace,
