MISSON MINUTE


Two weeks ago we informed you of the recipient for the Christmas Eve offering.  If you remember, it will go to the Hallahan's, Josh and Kelly.  They are involved in the World Gospel Mission of education in Uganda.  They have four children, two boys and two girls.  Below is why they serve:
     "We both were impacted as young people by adults who took the time to introduce us to Jesus and to love us by being His hands and feet.  We are passionate about building authentic relationships with the students at Heritage International School in Uganda and loving them like Jesus. We desire to reach out to the parents, too, who are busy in ministry or other jobs around the city of Kampala.  If we can build genuine relationships with the students and then with the parents, we can help parents know what is really going on in the hearts of their children and how to continue loving their kids the best way possible. We also desire to turn Heritage into a launch pad for missions.  There is a high turnover of students and staff due to the nature of the school.  If we can take advantage of the time we get with each family and instill in them a passion to spread the kingdom of God wherever they find themselves each day, then we are multiplying our impact and seeing God's kingdom grow at a great rate.  In order to do that, we plan to shepherd the entire Heritage community--from student to parent to teacher."

Also, if you are receiving Christmas cards in the mail when being asked to donate to a charity and you don't need them, Heart to Heart could use them.

As United Methodists, we believe that there are many ways to pray. Christians consider praying to be something we are obligated to do. As such, it is sometimes described as part of a spiritual discipline. To be sure, there is value in thinking of prayer as a requirement for spiritual growth.

Join us on an unforgettable journey this Advent season
to experience Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace

journeyOver two thousand years ago, a star burst through the darkness and signaled the long-awaited, yet still unexpected birth of a Savior.
Christmas can still truly give us a taste of the most wonderful time of world history. Jesus—the Messiah, the Savior—came as the light into the darkness and stress and pain of the world—our world. That world then, just like our world now, including our lives, needs the light to illuminate, clarify, guide, and heal. Christ’s coming brings that ultimate light through hope, love, joy, and peace. This is the journey of following the star to Christmas—and beyond!

This Advent season, you are invited to follow the star. It’s not just about the destination, but also about a journey we can take together to experience God’s love and grace in the midst of real life.
Check out ( www.firstumcmillville.org ) for more information and all the details of The Star: A Journey to Christmas
