New Wednesday Program Beginning At Burks UMC

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

A new Wednesday night program, 6433 Acts, will begin Jan. 15 at Burks UMC, 6433 Hixson Pike, Hixson. Our goal is to create an inviting space for dinner and fellowship with a great meal. During this meal, we will share in a time of prayer requests, focused prayer time and a personal testimony from an individual who has experienced God in their life and allowed transformation to begin. An atmosphere of hospitality and warmth to welcome all. A place where you could invite your co-workers, friends, neighbors, the guy in front of you in line at Walmart, to come have a meal on us and share in a time of fellowship offering the love of Jesus Christ.

The focus will not be on "programs" but rather on relationships. We desire to promote building of community and for our church to grow in relationships with one another and most of all with Jesus Christ. We strive to model the church of the book of Acts. We want to "devote ourselves to the apostles teaching and fellowship, and to sharing in meals, and to pray." Hence, the name 6433 Acts.

All of the adult activities will take place in the gym. The children will have a time of focused learning of the Worship Arts through the Kingdom Kids programs. Registration for the children will be in the main church at the Kingdom Kids check in desk. You may check in your child at 5:30. The Kingdom Kids programs will run from 5:43 until 6:43. Nursery will be available.

The youth will be meeting upstairs, in the gym after our prayer time, in groups of Middle and High School focused on Bible study and community. 

The cost of the meal will remain the same.. Burks' traditional dinner is offered at a cost of $7 for adults and $3 for children with a maximum of $23 per family. Serving will be available from 5 until 6:43. Reservations may be made through the church office at 842-4219.

Roy Exum: Our Tubman Goat-Roping

Every spring there comes a bright day on the ranch when the straw-boss decrees a goat-roping should take place. What really happens is the veteran cowboys arm the greenhorns with some lariats late in the afternoon and take them to the pen that holds some Billy goats. This is before they get into bigger beasts -- horses and cattle – yet what appears to be easy most certainly is not. ... (click for more)
